There are so many projects in the world and everyone had a different viewpoint. Naturally, as things are published we might see something and think that we would have changed this or that or done it completely different if we were given the chance. Some people actually make that chance happen, especially when it comes to re-designing movie posters or book covers.  Harry Potter is a popular series of both movies and books to re-design the images that cover each book or movie.  I came across one of these re-designs that has a more modern twist on the fiction and fantasy that J.K. Rowling presented to the world. The re-design is not just an image either, it is an animated .gif, and the designer created one for each book.

What I thought made these re-designs stand out was not only their animated features, but the concept of a lightening bolt, like the scar on Harry Potter’s forehead, is hidden in each design.  That extra attention to detail is what sets these creations apart from other re-designs.  Other minimalist designs for more movies can be seen here: http://mashable.com/2013/11/02/harry-potter-minimalist-posters/#gallery/minimalist-childrens-tales/527536b1b589e44df700cddb
