This Month's Lunch & Learn: Making Comics?

Everyone has a pet project that may either devour many an evening here, a weekend there, or perhaps has become a full-time commitment. Max Bare from the VOKAL design team falls into the semi-committed category. For this month's Lunch & Learn, Max shared with the VOKAL fleet, his topic: Hope to Create Comics. Referencing his personal project Mystery Afoot.

Max sited some high level steps in taking an idea to a full fledge comic, or sequential design, project. With concepts like simplifying characters to an iconic & therefore relatable treatment, or storytelling techniques in panel structure, Max hoped to relate a bit of the medium to our mobile design world on an abstract. Also there was pizza.


Captive audience.
