One of the reasons I got to design was because of posters, especially movie posters. It was part of my childhood going to the movies and while waiting checking the posters of the upcoming movies. I see a lot of that style for poster design coming back now because the 80s are again very trendy, the new Netflix show Stranger Things is a great example. For this post however, I don't want to talk about that style of poster but my favorite one nowadays, minimalist poster design and Xavier Esclusa Trias has quite a few good ones on his Behance portfolio. Xavier is an art director from Barcelona, Spain and his portfolio is filled with excellent posters, of all sorts of styles. They are quite good, but my favorites were the ones that he played with simple lines and colors to produce quite beautiful examples. They are heavily Swiss style or International Style inspired, that's the reason I love them and the reason I am sharing some of them here with you on this post. The International Typographic Style, also known as the Swiss Style, is a graphic design style that emerged in Russia, the Netherlands and Germany in the 1920s, and was made famous as it was developed by designers in Switzerland during the 1950s... It emphasizes cleanliness, readability and objectivity... - Wikipedia Minimalist Poster Design examples About Xavier Esclusa Educated in Barcelona as a Graphic Designer, Photographer, Community Manager and Multimedia Artist.

My good friend and an amazing designer and illustrator Everaldo Coelho has been mastering another field, photography. He shared an incredible set of images titled Minimal with photos that as the name suggests are of very simple composition and colors. I also love the long exposure effect over water, it makes it looks so smooth and calm. I also suggest you to check out Everaldo's photostream on Flickr, it's simply awesome.

I have been trying to publish a photo a day for the past year, actually a bit over than that. Admittedly, I missed a few days here and there. The main reason for trying to make this a habit is to improve and learn about photography. From equipment, to techniques and subjects I have to say that after almost 2 years I've come to learn quite a bit. Still I am more like a beginner/enthusiast than a photographer, but one of the things that I learned is that I love to take photos of buildings and architecture in general. There's something about the contrast of man-made structures with nature and sky that creates an eerie feeling. In this post I'd like to share some of the photos I've taken.

As many people preach, less is more. Whether in web design or graphic design or illustration or photography or architecture, minimalist composition tend to really make a point. In a visually polluted world, getting some delight for your eyes is really important.
