The demand for superhero content is still at an all-time high and graphic designer Rafael Barletta decided to try his hand at rendering the likes of Batman, Spider-Man, Superman and more using a minimalist approach. Rather than illustrating entire figures however, Barletta has chosen to focus solely on comic book characters’ faces and masks, rendering the various quirky disguises of vigilantes using only basic geometric shapes. The results may appear overly simple, but the fact that each hero is readily identifiable speaks of Barletta’s talent at conveyance.

For those unfamiliar with Rafael Barletta, he is a Porto Alegre-based art director and copywriter. His illustrations rely heavily on digital graphics, in particular vectors. He currently works for the Universidade de Santa Cruz do Sul, or UNISC for short.
