Simon Delart is a graphic designer and illustrator who has always been influenced by pop culture. As he puts it, he “likes working with geometrical forms to create images between realism and abstraction, while paying tribute in a culture which has always inspired him.”
His latest endeavor gives us a fresh new take on some of the biggest films to ever grace the silver screen. His approach for this is even more fascinating when you realize that he uses nothing but triangles to form the images. On top of that, he has given us a whole new look at these movies as he has designed album soundtrack covers for each one.
The movies featured are diverse and include, Moon, Back To The Future, Lord Of The Rings, Jurassic Park, Inception, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Star Trek, Tron Legacy, Wall-e, The Good The Bad and The Ugly, Terminator 2 and Star Wars: four, five and six.
We spoke to Simon about the project which he is calling his Triangle Vinyl Collection. Here is what he had to say: It is a double hommage. First to all those great composers, who create more than music but in a way, the DNA of a movie. And secondly, it’s an homage to the vinyl itself. I love the object, its dimensions, and mostly its sound. The vinyl cover is the perfect support to create illustrations.
For each cover I tried to find the most iconic things which represent the movie. Sometimes it’s a detail that only the people who know the movie will recognize. By doing so it’s more intimate, it’s like that cover has been made for us, the fans. I enjoyed playing with the colors too, as I set out to create an atmosphere that fit to the universe of the film.
I don’t know if this collection is finished. Maybe, if people like it, I will do more, a second part. Maybe people could tell me what is their favorite original score?
Well we hope he DOES do more and if you have suggestions…well you heard the man, let him know! You can “suggest” all you want over HERE on Simon’s TWITTER.
