I’m ecstatic to report that I’ll be a featured speaker at this year’s WebVisions, the Visionary Web Conference that rocks the Oregon Convention Center annually. Past attendees already know the value of this event, and newcomers couldn’t pick a better time to jump on board with keynote presentations by Mark Frauenfelder of BoingBoing and Jared Spool of User Interface Engineering.
I’ll be presenting Graphic Storytelling in New Media, a look at the compositional and narrative potential of web and interaction design through the principals (and lessons learned) of comics. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to discuss the intersections of my two favorite mediums, and I hope you’ll join me on Friday, May 22nd at 10:30am Thursday, May 21st at 2:45pm for some graphic inspiration.
Official Session Description:
There’s a reason Google tapped the talents of “Understanding Comics” author Scott McCloud to introduce their innovative browser to the world; comics possess the graphic clarity, visual language and universal appeal necessary to communicate complex stories, ideas and emotions to the largest audience possible. Join interactive designer (and published cartoonist) Tyler Sticka as we infuse the potential of our user experiences with the compositional, narrative and iconic principals of graphic storytelling.Update (4/27): The presentation has been rescheduled one day earlier in the afternoon, see the correction above.
