New Clever Pictogram Movie Posters by H-57

Designer Matteo Civaschi of Milan-based creative studio H-57 just sent us this awesome new collection of pictogram movie posters. A follow-up to their clever pictogram history posters, this set takes some popular movies, both old and new, and condenses their plots down to their most basic forms.

“This new set of stories shows our passion for the great, super-popular movies of all time,” Civaschi tells us. “You have the movies that made the world cry (E.T.), scream (Alien, The Shining), think (The Matrix), hope (Robin Hood), and so on. Each movie, if it’s really great, can create a whole new world, tell a story that’s never been told before, and give life to unforgettable characters.

“Squeezing all of these things into a few icons is fun. In the case of particularly long movies or sagas (like The Lord of the Rings), the final result is even funnier.”

H-57 first caught our attention a few years ago with their creative Star Wars typography posters. If you enjoyed this new series, make sure to check out Viktor Hertz’s own take on pictogram movie posters.








“We deeply love movies,” Civaschi states. “The magic of film can’t be replaced by anything else, no matter how technology evolves. Human beings need stories and emotions.”
