SEE WHAT I MEAN: HOW TO USE COMICS TO COMMUNICATE IDEAS by Kevin Cheng; foreword by Dan Roam Rosenfeld Media; December, 2012. 202 pages. http://rfld.me/see-what-i-mean
Comics are a unique way to communicate, using both image and
text to effectively demonstrate time, function, and emotion. Just as
vividly as they convey the feats of superheroes, comics tell stories of
your users and your products. Comics can provide your organization with
an exciting and effective alternative to slogging through requirements
documents and long reports. In See What I Mean, Kevin Cheng will teach you how you can use comics as a powerful communication tool without trained illustrators.
CONTENT EVERYWHERE: STRATEGY AND STRUCTURE FOR FUTURE-READY CONTENT by Sara Wachter-Boettcher; foreword by Kristina Halvorson; illustrations by Eva-Lotta Lamm Rosenfeld Media; December, 2012. 240 pages. http://rfld.me/content-everywhere
Care about content? Better copy isn't enough. As devices and
channels multiply--and as users expect to relate, share, and shift
information quickly--we need content that can go more places, more
easily. Content Everywhere will help you stop creating fixed,
single-purpose content and start making it more future-ready, flexible,
reusable, manageable, and meaningful wherever it needs to go.
