The profusion of stars told him unambiguously that he was doomed to die, and the thunder of the sea only yards away — and the nightmare of the blackest blackness beneath the frenzy of the water — made him want to run from the menace of oblivion to their cozy, lighted, underfurnished house.

—Philip Roth, Everyman

The fight for survival can be so cruel and unbearably painful that the spirit erodes and separates the individual from their collective experience.

—Tiffany Bozic, in a Juxtapoz interview

Minimalist History

This collection of pictogram history posters was designed by H-57creative agency as a part of their collaborative project with the websiteFirst Floor Under. The posters are designers’ take on famous biographies, real and fictional, expressed in not more than three or four steps. Thus, the lives of Michael Jackson, Hitler, Darth Vader, Jesus, Marie Antoinette, Napoleon, Bruce Lee and Caesar were summarized in a pictographic and humorous way. And, according to H-57, more similar works are coming:

We want to create many of them to give our point of view on the most famous world stories. Unfortunately, the ones with tragic ending are the funniest and most interesting.

With the popularity of typography and infographics on the rise, we see a lot of movie and music posters, art and literary works getting beautiful minimalist makeovers. These H-57 historic strips are a noteworthy addition to the array of inspiring designs.

Minimalisimo: Minimist Posters
This is a great example of something I’d like to do for my FMP, but on smaller less known events. I think these are fantastic, clear and look cool. I’d like to think Micheal Jackson had more to his life than what they have put as it undersells him. To sum, another great example of minimalistic design.

Thanks, Steve.
Posting designs like this one makes me paranoid, because I can’t shake the feeling that it’s not original. I enjoyed the process regardless, but please let me know if somebody else beat me to the idea!
Thoughts?
