Typographic film posters

Setting yourself a personal challenge can be hopeless.

Like in summer 2007 when we went to the gym five times in one week and then zero times for the following year.

So, we're giving a slow clap to graphic designer Patrik Svensson for giving himself a tall order and pulling it off rather admirably. He decided to create posters for some iconic movies using only typography.

The results are here and he's done a proper good job if you ask us.

You can see more of his work on his blog.
