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.
This series of black and white posters are great examples of minimalist design. Matt Chase has represented a deep message in a simple design.

As you can see, minimalist designs make excellent band posters. Sometimes an overdone design can distract from the music or band. With minimalism, however, the blocks of color and clean lines leave room for the experience of the music itself.
