This is an assignment I did as part of my Writing and Design Process class. We were tasked with designing a poster of a multimedia title of our choice (Multimedia meaning any TV Show, Movie, Video Game, etc.) and use metaphor as the driving force behind the visuals. In this case, I depicted a forest tunnel that gets darker and darker further down. My Neighbor Totoro largely focuses on the mystery and wonderment that children feel when they are introduced to something completely new to them, and this tunnel represents this.
If you haven’t seen My Neighbor Totoro yet, I really suggest that you take the time to do so, especially if you have any kids of your own. It’s a great movie and a wonderful introduction to Hayao Miyazaki’s works.
