TCAF 2013 - Judging a Book by it's Cover: Designing Comics Outside of the Panels

This panel centred on a discussion about fonts, logos, spot gloss, interior layout, and other elements of design that go into creating a comic book. A large part of the discussion centred on the delicate balance between how far their design choices will go when working with artists. Fawn also talked about design choices in relation to art books, mass produced manga, and the difference between Japanese and North American cover design.
