text bubbles

Updated: May 6, 2019



Text bubbles are really something I have been struggling with this project and have found it hard to make any real ground whilst looking into them. Below I have put together some text bubble examples from comics and graphic novels I own, all slightly different but clear and readable.


They are all white with black text, I don't really see any wandering from this theme apart from different coloured writing for different characters every so often. I see no reason to rock the boat with this characteristic and have been planning for my text bubbles to be white with black writing on also. This is because I am inexperience with text overall and the form of the bubbles and font worry me more than colour.


I plan to use a font I made last year for my own branding within the comic as it has a nice handwritten but legible feel and should compliment the aesthetic.


Overall it seems clear and understated deign wise for the text bubbles is the way to go.
