[ Life]

Viktor Hertz created this set of clever images that depict pictogram characters in movie settings. He takes the same images often seen on restrooms, roadways, and instruction manuals and crossbreeds them with classic cinema. Film is often considered one of the most universal of all art forms. Millions flock to theaters every weekend, while maybe only a few thousand make there way into an art gallery. Pictograms use a universal language to reach across culture and language barriers to convey meaning to everyone. Combining these two make for some cool posters that instantly tell you the story seen in the film:

Victor’s message to fans, posted on flickr:

This is an ongoing project, that just got started. So, count on lots of additional work in this project, in the future.

What I do, is that I make a quite simple movie poster, including one or a few pictograms, displaying the theme of the film. Either original pictograms combined, or modified ones, to fit with the film. As the title poster says, I try to bring a twist to it, and not get too simple. I can sometimes feel that all these minimalist movie posters get a bit boring, a bit too simple, with just an object from the film and the title underneath it. That is something I try to avoid, so please, let me know if I go there. My e-mail is currently viktorhertz@hotmail.com.

Big thanks to www.thenounproject.com, who provide a great collection of pictograms. I visit them more often than YouTube, these days.

Hope you like the posters!

All the best,
Viktor
