Most avid fans of 80’s and 90’s wrestling would attribute its success not only to the wrestlers’ ability to entertain the crowd, but the spirit of the unique, well-branded characters compared to the culture’s current indistinguishable counterparts. The WWF Legends Minimalist Poster Series became a challenge to tap into this theory to its rawest form and create designs that evoke the trademark personalities of the golden era of wrestling entertainment.
Each poster features the simplest of visual elements that are iconic to the respective wrestler, as well as their signature finishing move. Aged element for vintage/retro feel to fit with the appropriate time reference. All of the posters you will see today can be easily purchased on Etsy and were hand crafted by Bernie Gross. Enjoy!
