My research builds on my MA dissertation: The graphic novel page and the design of time. Submitted for my MA in book design, typography dept, at the University of Reading.


Project (1)
This work aims to outline the design methods used by graphic novelists to articulate time across the page. It questions the ways in which the handling of space determines the rate at which the reader engages with the narrative. The research considers whether design techniques used by graphic novelists can inform the wider book design discipline to offer alternative approaches and greater nuance.
