Design Assignment – Minimalist TV/Movie Poster

I love minimalist movie poster designs. The simplicity in it makes it all the more enjoyable to view. For this assignment I chose to do a minimalist movie poster on the movie The Martian.


The movie already had a basic poster. Simply the actor, Matt Damon, looking into the camera with a quote from the book/movie. I found an image online of a simple, almost cartoonish version of mars:


This image was created as a space tourism poster. Since my photoshop skills aren’t great, I was happy that all that was required of me was to remove the existing text and replace it with the background colors. I then simply inserted the text that I wanted into their own existing layers. All editing was done using I hope you guys enjoy!
