Designer Nick Barclay's Circle Movies poster series takes a very minimalist approach to classic films. And yet, even rendered in only circles, the films are still instantly recognizable.

We asked Barclay, "Why circles?" and he told us:

I chose circles because after watching interstellar me and a friend were talking about 2001 a space odyssey and how a circle could be a main character. So that got me thinking and I wanted to see if I could break films down and represent them just by using circles.

The more I researched it the more I realized that there were so many films that I could use.

Here are some of the extensive poster collection:




You can see the rest of them, and more of Barclay's minimalist designs, on his Behance page.
