How did it become Friday already? We don’t even know. Next thing we know, we’re going to wake up and it will be 2013 – sigh, time keeps escaping us. But since it’s Friday, we’ve rounded up something fun for Movie Friday: alternative movie posters for the Disney Pixar film, Monsters Inc. Monsters Inc. 3D is coming out on December 19, 2012 – we’re excited to see it on the big screen in 3D, even though we’re not even big fans of 3D! Can you imagine how that billion door epic scene is going to play out in 3D? Man, it is going to be awesome! And with Monsters University just around the corner, it couldn’t have been a better time for us to seek out the best recreations.
We scoured the web (well, actually only Behance) to find some great graphic designer renditions of the animated film. Tons of designers decided to take a more minimalist approach (isn’t that just the trend, nowadays?), and we’re eating it up. Check them out below!
We think that Azael Olmos of Mexico really captured the personalities of the characters in his minimalist movie posters!
Karen Camillo of Brazil created these fun minimalist posters and even accompanied the poster designs with a video that suits the character of the original film. Kudos to her!
Franco Mathson of Natal, Brazil, created minimalist character features of Mike and Sully. Sully reminds us a lot of the cookie monster, to be honest!
Fred Milani of Sao Paulo, Brazil, was inspired by the back of the US dollar bill when he created an alternative look to Mike Wazowski, entitled “All Seeing Mike.”
Chris Anderson from Leeds, UK, created a series of minimalist Pixar posters that we absolutely love. His take is on key items that work more discreetly into the film, as opposed to the characters.
MJ Da Luz of San Jose, Costa Rica, created gorgeous fan art for Brave, Monsters Inc. and UP.
These weren’t posters, but rather minimalist takes on the characters themselves! We think that Viraj Nemlekar of Mumbai, India, did a great job – but do they remind you of something you can build out of LEGO pieces? We do!
Taylor Denning of Seattle created a series of Disney-themed posters based on the 1950s minimalist design style. We featured his Finding Nemo poster once before, and decided to bring him back again for this roundup!
