In the middle of Leeds there is a library, and in that library is a drawer full of amazing, boring things. Inspired by that drawer, a faded scrawl on a wall, and a talk that had not yet happened, Matthew and illustrator Kristyna Baczynski created a short comic. Matthew is going to talk about the process of creating that comic, from the tea-and-brainstorming 'first date' to the relentless tippy-tappy slog of typing a thing already clear in our heads.
Following the presentation will be a hands-on workshop on how we can incorporate using comics in our design process.
