Designing a comic-book style inspired e-Learning demo has been on my project playground to-do list for a long time. I even put together a Pinterest board to collect some of the images and ideas I have come across – you can take a peek at this here.
I have seen some great examples of full-on courses from other designers, including Cathy Moore’s Connect with Haji Kamal which you can view and read about in Tom Kuhlmann’s post here, Broken Co-Worker which you can view and read about here, and some great examples designed and developed by Linda Lorenzetti which you can read about and take a look at here.
Inspired by the e-Learning Heroes weekly challenge #156 Popular Stock Photo Styles and Effects in e-Learning, I’ve spent some time working with some stock images to create comic-style images – a good starting point, I feel.
These were created using a combination of Photoshop, Pixlr and Picasa – yes, no PowerPoint this time!
You can find more inspiration for comic book graphics from sites such as Freepix by searching for comic book
I hope I have inspired you to try this technique to create your own unique comic-style inspired e-Learning using stock images.
