If you had of asked me if I'd be able to recognize famous crime-fighters sans their trademark expressions and faces, I didn't think I would be able to, but these 'Minimal Superheros' illustrations by Peter Magdy Mangoline are so well done that it's hard to miss their identities.

Peter Magdy Mangoline is a Cairo, Egypt-based artist with a specialization in character design, drawing and illustration, and his Minimal Superheros drawings are a testament to that. These drawings undeniably follow a minimalist pattern and are a special take on washing these crime-fighters from their trademark identities.

Implications - As opposed to striving hard to create unique imagery that has never been seen before, companies should consider re-appropriating existing images within popular culture. The stunning results of these superhero illustrations prove that it is possible to create dynamic results out of existing visuals that have become recognizable within mass society.
