Minimalist TV show posters header SR Pick: Minimalist TV Show Posters

Over the few months we’ve been sharing some wicked minimalist posters, such as the movies of Quentin Tarantino and the various Star Wars movies. Today we continue highlighting these posters by showcasing a few based on some of the most popular TV shows out there.

Long time readers of Screen Rant might remember a few of these posters from our editor Rob Keyes’ regular Poster Friday articles, but since “major sites” are now reporting on them like they’re new or something, we thought we’d offer you a few more.

There’s literally dozens of these posters by artist Albert Exergian but we’ve chosen just a handful either for how clever/cool looking they are or because the shows are of particular interest to our readers. We’ve chosen posters for True Blood, Heroes, 24 and Flashforward. As always with these posters, it’s not immediately obvious what they’re referring to, however fans of the  shows should be able to work them out icon smile SR Pick: Minimalist TV Show Posters

Here are some of the posters below:

Pretty damn cool, eh? I always love seeing these minimalist posters not just because of their simplicity, but for the challenge of figuring out just what the art is referencing in the show. That last Flashforward one in particular had me puzzled for a couple of minutes before I realized it’s referring to the push pins used to put the clues up on the board.

Which of the posters is your favorite?

  1. *sigh*

    I give up…

  2. i don't get the fascination with these. they're so generic. they don't even catch the eye.

  3. Saw these minimalist movie posters

  4. Yeah, I'm really not keen on most of those either! My problem with this design style (and it is a style) is that it's come about as a direct result of software which now means that any drugged ape with a computer can churn this stuff out till the cows come home. Don't get me wrong, I think the Heroes and 24 posters above are fair enough, but when you see the guy in the link you provided using the exact same imagery for his Lord Of The Rings effort, and then you see that it's ALREADY BEEN USED as a LOTR book cover…

    …then something's gone a bit weird, in my opinion. It's ironic that the Bauhaus/Deco stylings these people invariably copy – the era of streamlining and geometric forms being used in the design of everything from advertising to architecture; modernity stripped of all ornamentation – mean they adopt a method that looks more faceless, machinelike and mass-produced than any Stalinist propaganda poster.

  5. I agree with you TBD. Anyone can draw a circle and pass it off as a design. From the minimalist posters I have seen, from Albert Exergian to designsomethin I have only seen a few of them that really made me go, Oh wow. To each his own?
