Artist Spotlight: Studio Ghibli Movie Posters

Studio Ghibli movie posters are a popular front for indie artists and designers to show off their skills, and we've seen many inspired designs that give the official studio posters a run for their money. I really enjoy this series, which features abstract takes on Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke and Howl's Moving Castle.

I really like the minimalist, zen approach to these posters. The only text is the title, in Japanese, accompanying a single silhouette with additional details inside. This style appeals most to the fans who are already familiar with these movies. This is a luxury that movie studios cannot afford, as the rules of advertising dominate over art design. Overall, great job, and as always, I would like to see this series expanded to include more Ghibli movies, and even the pre-Ghibli works as well.

I could not find the name of the artist who created these pieces. If you can find the designer, please pass it along so that we can give them the proper credit.
