Did you wake up this morning and think to yourself, "Movie posters are overrated. I wish they'd make simpler posters without all the Photoshop and explosions and 'actors' on them?"
I know. Me too.
Well graphic paper production company Minke thought so too.
Minke partnered up with design agency Atipo for the paper company's new campaign promoting their website tool Paper Gallery that will help you choose the right paper for your projects.
To showcase the company's beautiful and various paper selection, Atipo's team designed 15 of the most minimalist minimal movie posters you've ever seen. The campaign is called Papers for Characters — which is a strange translation from Papeles de Cine, which should have been Papers for Cinema. But don't let that distract you from the amazing detail on the non-detailed posters. It's crazy.
