Concluding our Thinking About Design series, we discuss some of the elements of design and how they can be used to convey whatever meaning you wish. Using advanced paneling in comics as a way to model these elements in use, we explore how a thoughtful application of these design elements can create stunning and original works.
We close with some strategies we've used to "level up" on our own design skills.
