Owning the Narrative

BY MANAL ABDULLAH
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 11, 2017

Manal Abdullah is an architect and teacher by profession, and an illustration and cross-disciplinary design enthusiast otherwise. Her exploration of visual narratives has allowed her to inculcate the art of story-telling into different facets of her design practice, from developing narratives in spatial design to producing on-stage sets for preconceived ideas. According to her, the power of story-telling translates into almost all forms of conveying information. In her presentation, she plans to identify the factors in which involve an audience into a visual narrative.
