Minimalism in design is characterized by reducing the elements of design down to the very basics. The idea is to use the most basic of shapes and lines to represent a form. Stripping away noise and emotion, minimalist designers create art with monochromatic color schemes and repetitive patterns. In the following minimalist band posters, you will be able to see the beauty of a simplified form of art.
