We are pleased to announce Scott McCloud as the Big Design 2016 closing speaker. Scott has been writing, drawing, and examining comics since 1984. He has won the Eisner and Harvey awards. Scott’s works have been translated into more than 16 languages. Frank Miller (Sin City, 300) has called Scott “just about the smartest guy in comics.”
Most designers know Scott McCloud as a comics theorist. Understanding Comics (1993), Reinventing Comics (2000), and Making Comics (2006) are his three non-fiction books that many web designers use to understand the importance of grids, flows, and lines.
Scott was an early supporter of web comics. He was the principal author of a Creative’s Bill Of Rights. You can find his online comics and inventions at scottmccloud.com.
