Minimalist Movie Poster

Posted by

I decided for my assignment that I would make a minimalist movie poster. I love the professionally done ones that you can find online, they are some of the most creatively simple pictures I’ve seen. To get started I had to pick a movie, this was a huge decision in itself because I wanted to do something awesome and I have seen so many movies so it was hard to decide. I figured I should actually try something simple because I have no experience in Photoshop or Illustrator and I’m terrible at in Paint. After thinking about it for a while, I finally decided on the movie My Neighbor Totoro. I’m not sure how many of you watch Japanese anime movies, but this is definitely a childhood favorite and even a favorite at 22. The subject of my poster is an acorn (Totoro and his friends carry around acorns and plant them), which seemed easy enough. Unfortunately, I wanted it to be perfect and look like the professional ones, but without experience in Illustrator, my dreams started to slip away. I tried my best drawing an acorn, I even tried to add a little shine and a shadow to it, and I think it turned out pretty nice (although I’m not sure anyone would know what it is if they didn’t read this first). I think I’ll probably put a lot more practice into using photoshop and illustrator.
