Rian at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, 17th to the 19th October, 2014
"I'll be discussing some familiar logo designs I've done for Batman, Tangent, Iron Man, Fantastic Four and others," says Rian Hughes of his planned event at the Festival, "showing the process of refining ideas to arrive at the final logo. I'll also be showing my comic strip work as it relates to my mainstream illustration work in advertising and design, talking about the intricacies of font design, and how very similar concerns about narrative underpin them all."
