Designer Reimagines Iconic Movie Posters With Minimalist Designs: Reservoir Dogs, The Matrix & More

reservoir dogs poster

While watch­ing Inter­stel­lar and hat­ing it, design­er Nick Bar­clay came up with a project for him­self — tak­ing the posters of famous films and reimag­in­ing them with a min­i­mal­ist design that uses only cir­cles. Above, you can see his clever take on Taran­ti­no’s Reser­voir Dogs. It’s a far cry, to be sure, from the orig­i­nal movie poster found below.

Over at My Mod­ern Met, you’ll find oth­er min­i­mal­ist designs for The Matrix, The Lord of the Rings, Bram Stok­er’s Drac­u­la, For­rest Gump, Har­ry Pot­ter, Pulp Fic­tion, Trainspot­ting, 101 Dal­ma­tions, Léon: The Pro­fes­sion­al, The Deer Hunter, Total Recall, Mon­sters Inc., and, of course, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Prints can be pur­chased on Bar­clay’s web­site.
