Less is More: Motomichi Nakamura

Strong visual storytelling, iconic, minimalistic design style and faintly disturbing, Motomichi Nakamura is a perfect example of less is more. Here is We Share Our Mother’s Health with music by the Knife (2006).

La Linea

A short film by Osvaldo Cavandoli from the La Linea TV series which aired on Italian TV from 1971 – 1986. This film is a great example of minimalist design: less is more!

The influence of the La Linea films can be seen in contemporary motion graphics and commercials, for example Raimund Krumme’s commercial for Hilton Hotels.
