Image and Text

Remember that the combination of image and text is a balance: Either or both together can form the focus of the message.

Image and text


Remember the arc of our narratives:

  1. Exposition: Introduces characters and situation
  2. Turning point + complicating action: Conflict occurs and obstacles encountered in pursuit of goal
  3. Climax + resolution: Goal achieve or conflict resolved

Visual Storytelling

Remember how sequence, arrangement, and framing of panels enhances a narrative.


Remember that timing, easing, and squash/stretch create more realistic animation.
