As a visual language, comics has its own vocabulary such as panel, speech bubble, onomatopoeia and motion lines. A static scene can be very tensional and a vivid world can be realised in a flat pane.
Apart from story and artwork, design also plays an important role to make a comic book great. In this talk, the founders of the “zbfghk” will have a conversation with comic artist Felix Ip and designer faminik on comic design.
“zbfghk” will talk about comic books and picture books in terms of design and printing, and the visual identity of comics, explaining how design can enhance the value of the work.
Felix and faminik will then join “zbfghk” to share their experience in the collaboration of “Zombiology: Enjoy Yourself Tonight” and discuss Hong Kong comics.

[ About the Speakers ]
We both like comic books. We like the way it feels when we hold a book in hands and flip the pages. We like all the thoughtful printing ideas. We like to see the familiar language printed on paper and support comic artists who are working hard on the new issues that we look forward to.
