Introduction

Hello, I'm Viktor Hertz, a freelance graphic designer from Sweden. Some of my most known personal projects are my pictogram movie posters, pictogram music posters and 'Honest logos'. Some of my clients are Ray-Ban and Uppsala International Short Film Festival

I've also created two successful Kickstarter campaigns so far- an Andy Warhol poster, and the one leading up to this very project; The secret pictogram poster project. The idea behind the latter was to invite all backers to the creative process, and let them choose what project I should realize next. They have also been involved in some of the creative decisions down the road. It was a great experience, and I'm pretty sure I will initiate a similar collaboration in the future.  

.

The project

I've been working with pictograms since I started doing graphic design. However, this time I wanted to come up with a completely new concept- so, I tried to depict movies in just two still frames. Think of it as an extremely short film, summarizing the story and visualizing the changes the characters go through. 

My goal is very simple- I want to print this new artwork collection and I need the funding for printing. So, if you'd like to get one or several of these posters at a reduced Kickstarter price, just make a pledge at any of the levels! 

.

The posters

As a result of 'The secret pictogram poster project', the final selection of titles resulted in The Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction, the original Star Wars trilogy, Fight Club, A Clockwork Orange, and Forrest Gump. I also have a couple of unpublished extra posters up my sleeve, but more on that later (see stretch goals below)

Here are the posters, and also a couple of close-ups of some of the details:

Amélie: first additional poster to be printed if 1st stretch goal is reached.
Amélie: first additional poster to be printed if 1st stretch goal is reached.
Die Hard: second additional poster to be printed if 2nd stretch goal is reached.
Die Hard: second additional poster to be printed if 2nd stretch goal is reached.

Minor changes in color scheme and small details may apply before actually printing them, but they're as good as finished. 

.

Facts about the posters & shipping

I will print these off set on 150g/sm Tom&Otto silk (NOT 170g, sorry for the inconvenience), sized 30 x 40 cm (11.7 x 15.6 in). All posters will be signed by me and shipped in thick cardboard tubes (framing not included).

Estimated worldwide shipping in May/June 2015- please expect delivery within 4-5 weeks, if you're outside the EU. Within the EU, it shouldn't take much longer than a week. I will notify everyone once the rewards are sent. Unfortunately, it's quite expensive to get tracking codes for the shipments, so please be patient- they will arrive sooner or later, I promise.

NOTE: These posters are all unofficial fan art, and are not affiliated with any of the official movie companies.

Stretch goals

45.000 SEK - I will add Amélie to printing

50.000 SEK - I will add Amélie + Die Hard

55.000 SEK - I will add Amélie + Die Hard + ONE MORE POSTER 

60.000 SEK - I will add Amélie + Die Hard + TWO MORE POSTERS

200.000 SEK - I will add the four above, and also ANOTHER TRILOGY POSTER SET, that were among the most popular ones in the survey I made earlier. I haven't started working on these yet, but if we actually reach this goal, I will put everything aside and make them. This is quite a long shot, but one can always dream, right? 

.

Super-sizing your pledge

If you'd fancy one of my pictogram rock posters (50x70 cm) and like to add one or more to your order, just add 90 SEK (~$10) for each one to your pledge. 

If you rather go for one of my limited A4 pictogram prints, just add 50 SEK (~$6) to your pledge. 

I also have the 'Time for wine' and 'Coffee and cigarettes' posters (70x100 cm), which you can grab for 100 SEK (~$11.50), if you want to add one of those to your pledge. 

Don't forget to let me know which one(s) you'd like, if you add any of these to your order.

Thank you...

... so much for taking the time to read this, and thanks a million if you've decided to support me and this project! And, if you don't have the ability to support me with actual money, I'd really appreciate it if you share this project with everyone you know! 

Please, don't hesitate to ask me a question, if anything should be unclear, and I'll try to reply as soon as I can. 

Thanks again, I'm really looking forward to make this project come true together with you!

Best,

Viktor

Risks and challenges

This project is finished already, I just need the funding for printing and shipping these posters. So, I can't see how there could be any risks involved in this, at all. I will work as hard as I need, to get this project funded, and I won't rest until everyone has got their reward(s), I promise.
