Denise Flasz

Hello! My name is Denise Flasz, I was born in Caracas, Venezuela but I currently live in NYC. I got my BFA in illustration at the Instituto de Diseño de Caracas,and then I decided to do an MFA in Multimedia design at the Centro de diseño digital. After all this college experience and some freelancing I worked for almost two years in a Visual Communication enterprise named Oruga Films, where I can say that I learned many of the things I now know and also gained a lot of experience in what professional work and team work matters. Since I was in college I new I wanted to grow bigger and achieve many goals in life, and for this I knew that if I wanted to do great I had to attend a great school, so I applied and of course choose Parsons New School of Design. For me it was really hard to pick what I wanted to do in this school, and what kind of major I wanted to get involved into, because many things seemed so valuable and incredible interesting that it was really hard to make up my mind, and that's when I saw the DT program and how wide it was, and started projecting and realizing how much I could achieve from this major and how good it was going to be for me.

1) Choice of moment, frame, image, word, flow, (pick one).
2) What is the goal(s) of it?
3) Give examples

Choice of flow

Making comics is like telling a brief and interesting yet catching story with images. One of it’s big obviously purposes is to actually keep the reader interested in whatever the story is about so the message can be sent and the story can be told.

For this, there are a lot of ways that mostly all writers or artists select in approach of this goal, but the main five steps set on this book by Scott Mccloud assure you success in it.

One of the very important things about this five steps is that they actually give you the perfect recipe for doing a great comic, but for me one of the most important things for a great story telling or narrative is “order”, that’s why I chose flow. Imagine someone telling you a story from the middle to the end and then to the beginning, the message is not going to be received, if you want your story to be understood then you have to “tell” the reader from where to start and where to end.

There is an existing agreement between readers and writers that states, that lecture begins from left to right and from top to bottom, so the major goal of the choice of flow is to keep an order in the way of displaying the story cells and don’t confuse the reader.
