Visual vocabulary to visual language: what comics can teach information architecture

Presented by:

Stuart Curran

Information architecture tends to focus on the structure of meaning -  how we organise and connect information to create consistent, relevant experiences. What is less considered is the meaning of structure - the way we interpret and understand a flow of information to create narrative and purpose. Drawing on research about the cognitive experience of sequential art as well as lessons from masters of the comic book form, I’ll show how there is still much to learned from the metaphor of the page.
