In this series of posters, graphic designer Nick Barclay illustrates 14 famous films as circles of color. Dracula‘s poster features two red fang marks; Harry Potter‘s depicts the outlines of his famous broken spectacles; The Lord of the Rings is a giant gold ring to rule them all; Trainspotting is a series of pink track marks on pale flesh; and The Matrix is one red and one blue pill. The posters are eye-catching pieces of abstract decoration, letting you pay homage to your favorite movies without making you cover your wall with giant photos of Keanu Reeves in a trench coat or Daniel Radcliffe holding a wand. Each poster is complete with some film buff stats: the date the picture was released, its budget, and how much it earned at the box office.
The posters are available for download on Nick Barclay’s website.
