STORYBOARD:


  • teams | projects:
    Storyboards visualize ideas in the making, and I use them wherever the planning of a storytelling process is necessary, be it for myself or in a teamwork.
  • storyboard use:
    Storyboards have served me as a team communication tool during my workshops, team briefings, in journalistic and research projects. As a personal planning tool, storyboards paved the way for all of my comic and manga projects.
