UK based artist Michael Turner has a minimalist series where superheroes are presented in two color tone portraits. Quite a set, and it just made me realize several superheroes prefer very bright colors for their costumes.
Red Bull gives you wings, but it adds superhero powers to those wings. Well, usually. Sometimes you don’t get the power to fly, and you could end up as Batman (which would be awesome), or Aquaman (which would suck). In the latter case, you just accept your destiny because fate is cruel. Redbull Superheroes from Diego Fonseca present minimalist superhero styling on the classic cans of RedBull. Well, they have no RedBull logo or insignia, but the shape of the cans is identification enough.
Playing up to the Harry Potter series, artist Jessica Martinez has created a set of animated gif images for all seven books of the series. The images focus on a primary event or object in the related book, and animate it for full effect. It would probably be more like how all images work in the Harry Potter world anyway. As an extra, each image also has Harry Potter’s lightning scar; sometimes clearly visible, and sometimes hidden well enough to make you search for it.
A humorous set of 20 posters, these illustrations by Simon Sek capture the 20 districts of Paris and the clichés, stereotypes or simply what the areas are famous for associated with them. The posters take a minimalist approach, trying to describe the area with a simple image or object.
Superhero undies have a special quality: they’re basically an easy way to identify the characters. It’s like the highlight of their dress. Those who wear a full dress wear their underwear over the dress, and several of them skip much of the gear except the underwear. For what it is worth, no superhero forgets to wear a signature belt with their underwear. So the underwear basically is the most distinguishable part of their persona.
Visual designer Yang Liu has spent much of her life in Germany, though she was born in China. Using her own experience and perspective, the artist created a minimalist visualizations showing how the two countries see similar concepts. The blue side represents Germany, and the red side is China. The series seems quite similar to the more famous Paris vs New York that we have seen earlier.
Graphic designer Nicolas Beaujouan has created a set of minimalist posters from sci-fi and geeky books. Several famous names show up in the extensive set, the modern ones as well as the classics.
Viktor Hertz is a Swedish graphic designer and artist who happens to create very intriguing images. If that name sounds familiar, it might be because his projects like the honest logos, movie pictograms, and even the music pictograms we’re talking of here have been widely noticed and appreciated. Several updates have been made to the pictogram music posters since we first saw them, so here’s the updated set. We kind of like the Highway to Hell poster. It is subtle, and it is quite direct. Several of these images are available as T-shirts and posters at the artist’s store on RedBubble.
This set of minimalist football (or soccer) logos is the creation of Jordan based Manara Design Studio. Considering the number of elements that show up in football club logos, there’s only so much minimalist that you can go. Hit ahead for more.
