Pictogram Movie Posters

Viktor Hertz has combined two hobbies, graphic design and film, in this series of pictogram movie posters. Pictograms are often seen in instruction manuals and on signs, and is considered a universal language.

"I’ve always been fascinated and a bit obsessed by pictograms, with the way they are as simple as possible," he tells us." A classmate called me a 'pictophile' the other day. I can only agree. I made a few Kubrick posters some time ago, using pictograms, so that’s where it all started. Now I wanted to be consistent, and do a series of posters using the same grid and style, making them work together as a whole. "I try to bring a twist to it, and not get too simple. I want to be unpredictable and entertaining, and make something that communicates the film instantly, yet in an original way."
