Minimalist Pictogram Song Posters

While many music releases go hand in hand with eye-catching poster art designed to compete for attention among a sea of flashy promotional material, Swedish designer Viktor Hertz decided to take the opposite approach in his minimalist renditions of posters for classic songs. Using bare pictography to express the essence of each track, he gets the promotional message across in the most efficacious — but still aesthetically pleasing — manner possible. Check out some of Hertz’s best hieroglyph-like posters after the jump.
