Hello sweet blog readers! Have ya missed me? I was giving you time to vote for me in the Cooked Recipe Challenge. I tried my darndest. I don't think I am going to win, my competition seems to be manufacturing people or Facebook profiles and I do not want to ruin my friendship with people by begging them to vote for me anymore. It has become demoralizing. I also don't feel Facebook is an honest and fair judgement of something.

Anyway! Let's not talk about food for a while! Today, I have some rad posters to share with you. They have been create by a guy called Viktor Hertz. Mr Hertz, like me has two great passions, movies and graphic design. I love Mr Hertz already. Don't you? Anyhoo, the clever man has created a series of pictogram movie posters. Pictograms are universal symbols which explain things, for example the little man or woman sign on toilet doors or  no smoking signs.
Hertz on pictograms: "I’ve always been fascinated and a bit obsessed by pictograms, with the way they are as simple as possible," he tells us. "A classmate called me a 'pictophile' the other day. I can only agree. I made a few Kubrick posters some time ago, using pictograms, so that’s where it all started. Now I wanted to be consistent, and do a series of posters using the same grid and style, making them work together as a whole.

"I try to bring a twist to it, and not get too simple. I want to be unpredictable and entertaining, and make something that communicates the film instantly, yet in an original way."
 The posters I have here as well as more can be viewed on Flickr as part of an on-going project Hertz has created called Pictogram Movie Posters. Be sure to check it out regularly as he keeps uploading new ideas and posters!
