ACTIVITY
Viktor HERTZ, a Swedish
graphic designer, has taken a
number of iconic films
(including these two films)
and given them
poster
makeovers
which sum up
the overriding themes in a
brilliantly simplistic way


Viktor Hertz combines two of
his greatest hobbies, graphic
design and film, into a clever
series starring pictograms

Often seen on signs or
instruction manuals,
pictograms serve as our
universal language, a way for
all of us to quickly figure out
where we are going or what
we are (not) allowed to do.
To him, this set became
Hertz's "form of expression,"
a way to stretch his creativity
and imagination.

"I’ve always been
fascinated and a bit obsessed
by pictograms, with the way
they are as simple as
possible," he tells us. "A
classmate called me a
'pictophile' the other day. I
can only agree. I made a few
Kubrick posters some time
ago, using pictograms, so
that’s where it all started.
Now I wanted to be
consistent, and do a series of
posters using the same grid
and style, making them work
together as a whole."

"I try to bring a twist to it,
and not get too simple. I
want to be unpredictable and
entertaining, and make
something that communicates
the film instantly, yet in an
original way."
