Inspired: X-Files Minimalist Movie Poster

xfilesThe artist behind this piece, Kaileyck, is in Jennifer Polock’s section of ds106 this semester. I’ve been following her work through Twitter thanks to the #ds106 hashtag, and I’ve become a fan of her art. Here minimalist poster of The X-Files was striking to me because while stark, the shadows, color scheme and composition suggest the complexity of designing something so stripped down. So many elements have to work well together to lull you into a sense of naturalized minimalism, and this piece did that so quickly for me that I was taken by it. The “X” does so much of the work here, and its placement askance on the page and part of it out of the frame suggest the truth is out there in terms of the rest of the X, we just can’t see it :)
