It’s amazing what the human memory can do. All it takes is a single word or image to bring forth memories deep within our subconscious. Take for example these amazing pictogram movie posters by talented graphic artist Viktor Hertz. The Sweden based artist has the amazing talent for distilling an entire movie into just one image.
“I try to bring a twist to it, and not get too simple, Hertz explained. “I want to be unpredictable and entertaining, and make something that communicates the film instantly, yet in an original way.”
Pictograms can often be seen on signs and instruction manuals, serving as a guide for us to easily figure out what we’re supposed and not supposed to do. For Viktor Hertz, it’s a form of expression that helps stretch his creativity and imagination. Check out these clever and amusing movie posters pictograms by Viktor Hertz. Enjoy!
