Minimalistic Movie Posters Using Typography Characters

Having a minor in graphic design always keeps me on my toes when movie posters come out or basically just anything to do with design crosses my path. I love minimalistic fan movie posters. Mixing simplistic design with fun typograhic characters to create a movie poster are the best of both worlds. Patrik Svensson is a Swedish designer who has a taste for good movies and a love for advertising as well. (Sounds familiar). Catch some of his work after the jump to see more awesome posters!

Empire’s Top 500 Movies Of All Time

empire 500

Here is the list thanks to Empireonline.com. This list is old, from 2008, but I just happened to come across it in my array of boredom; since I have soooooooooo much to do this summer (anyone want to offer me a job?). I tallied it up and unfortunately I have only seen 140 out of the top 500 movies. For an up and coming movie fanatic and recently partaking in this sport/hobby, I think that the number is alright? It’s 28%, so that’s not too shabby, right? That is a lot of movies. You take a look at the list and see how many you’ve seen or even heard of. I have heard of most and added some of the ones on a list for me to see. I hope by the end of the year, maybe, I’ll have the number up to 200; that’s a lot of movies.
