Poster for Suspiria. Those creepy hands!

If you want to master something, do it a lot. Artist Scott Saslow took that to heart when he, a couple years ago, embarked on a project to create one movie poster a day. Now, he’s still making posters, and his work is incredible—minimal but iconic, made with a deft awareness of exactly how to translate a film into a single arresting image.

Scott Saslow was generous enough to share some of his work with io9 to feature, and it’s impressive stuff. The Suspiria poster, in particular, is an excellent design, creepy and communicative. And the The Shape of Water poster is delightfully literal.

I really love the colors in this one.

Correction: The post originally said a poster per “year” which, obviously, was a mistake. It has been corrected to per “decade.” Kidding. Per “day.”
