It all begun in 2008 when, Olly Moss, a young British artist found inspiration from Penguin’s famous book-cover design template from the 1960’s and 1970’s: the Marber grid (used to create imaginary covers for classic video games).

Olly applied postmodern concepts to classic movie posters, from this point onwards; the Minimalist Movie Poster Design Movement was born!

Olly Moss depicts multiple layers within a simple framework achieving beautiful ironic contrast of complex simplicity.

“Minimalism is a movement. Thanks to the internet, more and more people are becoming aware of different styles and treatments. The bar is being raised. It all comes down to respect. The more we as designers respect our audience, the more we can bring pride and originality to ourselves and the industry.”

-Olly Moss-
