Graphic design website Swiss Style Design created a collection of minimal movie posters for iconic pop culture films. The posters are made in a traditional Swiss typographic style that was vastly popular in the 1950s.

The Swiss styled posters emphasize “cleanliness, readability and objectivity” through their asymmetric layouts and sans-serif texts. The re-designed movie posters include classics like Pulp Fiction, A Space Odyssey and The Shining. The poster collection also includes more modern and animated films like Toy Story, Transformers and The Avengers.

The website encourages viewers to try to submit their own posters too; those who submit can be featured in the “Design of the Day.” The website is a non-profit organization hoping to promote its specific Swiss style of design to others world-wide.
