Created in 1994 and based off of the 1986 novel by Winston Groom, Forrest Gump embodies an epic romantic-comedy-drama. Masterfully directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film follows Mr. Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) through his life as a misunderstood juvenile growing up and living in Mobile, Alabama during the 1940’s. As Forrest grows older, he is confronted with death, pain and sadness. He learns to love, help and assist many individuals. When an exploratory assignment arose to depict a character of our choosing through a short book with typography as the driving force, it was easy to choose Forrest Gump.
