Had architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe been a film fan, we imagine he would have approved of the following collection of minimalist movie posters. Great designers are able to successfully communicate a message using only basic shapes or a handful of elements so while these designs may be deceptively simple, they demonstrate impressive design and visual communication skills. Whether you’re a fan of great design or just an avid film buff, we hope you enjoy this collection.
