The Social Network – Minimalist Movie Poster

Posted by


I created this using photoshop. First by using the rectangle tool to create the button. I gave it a black stroke of 4px, and used the line tool set to 3px to create the white lines within the rectangle.

I then searched the font Facebook uses which I found out was Lucida Sans. I used that in bold to write “Add as Friend” layered on top of the rectangle button. I then got the mouse cursor vector from google images and applied a drop shadow to it.

Finally, I used the gradient tool to apply the blue-white gradient effect on the background and added the Like and Comment buttons in the bottom.

I chose this movie because it was one of my favorites and it’s story can easily be captured with minimal design.
