Can the entire story of Starwars Episode V be conveyed any simpler? Wayne Dorrington used 64 lines including a small collection of icons to retell this epic tale. For those obsessed with the film this format will have you vividly imagining all the plot twists in your minds eye.

Kyle Tezak really enjoys the art of creating icons. Intriqued by the challenge of distilling information down to a small image, composed of a few simple lines. “That is what’s so great about icons, they’re tiny poems,” he says. Recently he’s challenged himself to creating representations of his favorite books, movies and historical events, using only 4 icons. His results are spartan, legible and eye-catching.
