Sydney based art director Nick Barclay’s latest series is a minimalist interpretation of iconic films using only circles. Each poster is like a small, visual brain-teaser, giving the viewer a little personal win when they correctly guess the film.
“It was after sitting for a painful three hours of watching ‘Interstellar,’ I was talking to a friend about ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ and how a circle can be a main character,” explains Barclay.
“I’d like people to see the humuor and the idea. I like my work to be informative, but also have an idea so people have an ‘Ahh!’ moment and engage with it more. I was surprised how many films I could actually use, the more I researched it, the harder it came to cut them down to just 14,” continues Barclay, citing cut examples such as “The Ring” and “The Exorcist.”
Nick’s Behance features many other impressive series including perhaps the most important thing to remember on a friday, the “Classic Cocktail” collection. Serve me up a Negroni p.l.e.a.s.e.
