Pictogram Posters

As much as we admire creative geniuses, we're also bitterly, painfully jealous of them. Every week offers up a new one, with an idea we swear we thought of first, to alternately love and envy in equal measure.

This week sees the turn of Viktor Hertz, a Swedish graphic designer, who has taken a number of iconic films and given them poster makeovers which sum up the overriding themes in a brilliantly simplistic way. If only all posters were made like this. It would certainly make a nice change from these photoshopped monstrosities.
