Spanish design firm atipo created a series of 15 movie posters in honor of “Paper Galler.” Each image uses only various colors, textures and manipulations of paper to convey the essence of an entire film.

After I saw these posters, I compare my own poster work to them. Did I say/use/express too much on my work? Did audience need some of information? It makes me have a self-doubt on my design stylize. I think the best design is the simplest design; also it can’t be too simple to confuse audiences. As a result, it will be the challenge for every designer.

    I can see where you would question yourself as a designer and your particular style. But remember, design can be both simple and complex. Not all best designs are simplistic and minimal. Some are complicated and have a juxtapostion of many elements. And either way can be sophisticated. As designers, it’s a tricky balance beam that we have to walk. Falling for one particular side can throw us off our game.

    I love minimalist movie posters. There are several artists out there that have created some amazing minimalist posters. The minimalist design is getting so popular, that even the movie studios are noticing. Several movie studios have rereleased many DVD’s with new minimalist covers.

    It’s like the saying goes, “Dying is easy, comedy is hard.” Making simple designs, unless you know EXACTLY what you’re going to make, are just as hard as complex designs. But those posters were very clever. Though it wasn’t until I saw the names for the movies did I fully understand what they were.
