Perhaps the most important element across all of Moving Brands work is story-telling. And as the world becomes more complex, and platforms, technologies and media are increasingly fragmented, a strong story is more critical than ever before.
Moving Brands has always built brands with a story at their heart, whatever the media. MB co-founder and CEO Ben has extended this passion for storytelling and technology into the comic industry with Madefire – a digital publishing tool. Graphic novels have found a new home with the arrival of the tablet, and with it comes the opportunity to revolutionise visual story-telling.
Ben has teamed up with the incredibly talented comic artist and writer Liam Sharp, of Marvel and DC fame, as well as some of the greatest visual storytellers of our time. The duo are launching the Madefire venture this Saturday at San Diego Comic Convention, to connect with pioneers in the creator community and to launch their new stories, ‘Dead Apes in the Snow’ and ‘The Shed’ by Liam, as well as Ben’s ‘Mono’ sketchbook. ‘Watchmen’ co-creator and artist Dave Gibbons is also launching his new story ‘Treatment’ through Madefire.
Liam and Ben will be on the Madefire stand (Stand 4902 at SDCC) this Thursday – Sunday, and will be joined by Dave on Saturday at 4pm.
