The Project

The Observer Graphic Novel special was a short series celebrating the booming art form and marking ten years of the Observer/Cape/Comica graphic short story prize. It spanned both print and digital and pulled together some of the biggest voices in the industry.

I created a set of brand elements and guidelines for the digital output, designing a series of graphical elements that speak to the rich and playful history of both comic and graphic art. I wanted to make particular use the mediums unique panel and cross-panel layouts, employing the golden ratio to help create a visual harmony across the series.
