Going off of last week’s post of celebrating unofficial movie posters that are awesome, we at Reel Design stumbled upon a series of minimalist Marvel posters created by Marko Manev, a mix-media artist, graphic designer, illustrator, and all-around badass creator from Skopje, Macedonia.
Marko’s minimalist posters take iconic Marvel character’s and reduces them to symbols associated with the character. Characters include members of the Avengers, the X-men, and the Inhumans. It’s really beautiful stuff, to be honest.
Here are our favorite 10:
#1 – Captain America
The first Avenger’s signature vibranium shield is used to depict the hero. What else could you possible need?
#2- Iron Man
The genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist is showing off his arc-reactor, the battery to his suits.
The God of Thunder from Asgard, Thor’s hammer Mjölnir is shown with a cool thunderbolt behind it.
#4- The Hulk
The green brute with an attitude problem is reduced to his DNA, which was altered by gamma radiation. It’s cool that a character so big can be represented by something so small.
#5 – Hawkeye
Apparently this bow wielding marksman never misses a shot. A target his perfect for him.
#6 – Black Widow
A deadly Russian spy, the Black Widow’s icon derives from the Black Widow Spider itself.
#7 – Spider-man
Your friendly neighborhood Web-head is shown by the signature eyes on his costume, surrounded by a web.
#8 – Venom
You can’t have Spider-man without Venom. This Symbiote covered villain is known for his sharp teeth and long tongue (he really needs to close his mouth more).
#9 – Deadpool
The Merc with a Mouth! NEED I SAY MORE? If I don’t, he probably will.
#10 – Wolverine
This couldn’t be a Marvel list without Wolverine being involved. Wolverine’s signature claws are used to cut an X into the design. The letter X as been synonymous with Wolverine because of his association with the X-men, but also because of the Weapon X program he was a part of that gave him his adamantium skeleton.
