More on Spirited Away Poster

Suggesting that the poster is fake, reader and graphic designer Ian King mentions that...

"The kerning (visual spacing between letters) in the logo is atrocious and definitely not professional. Most typographers agree that display text looks best when kerned tightly, with the space between each letter pair uniform throughout the word. In the "Spirited Away" on the poster, we can see some letters ramming into each other, while others have huge gaps in between."

Meanwhile Chris Arnesen sent us the following, "I've been researching Disney's website for any graphics for Spirited Away and this is the only graphic I can find: Once at this website, up in the top right of the screen is the header graphic for Spirited Away. As you will be able to tell, it has a blue background, but does only have the name Miyazaki on the title." Suggesting that the black poster is a rough draft and that it was not finalized.
