Hello there. I’m Kat Lombard-Cook, neé Sicard, a researcher in design and comics based in Scotland and Massachusetts.
This blog was started as a way to document some of my research inspiration during my Masters study at the Glasgow School of Art, and continued into my PhD at Edinburgh University. It was a mix between a digital sketchbook of inspiration and ideas that relate to the research I was doing, links to articles I’ve written, events I attended/spoke at, info on gigs I promoted, as well as design and comics I’ve created.
It currently stands as an archive of that time. If you’re interested in where these thoughts led, please come visit my main site KatLombardCook.com.
A little more about me: after graduating with a BA in graphic design, I spent 6 years working in post-production & motion graphics, co-creative directing corporate videos, public service announcements & educational videos for a company outside of Boston, MA, USA. I then pursued my Master’s in Communication Design at the Glasgow School of Art. In my two years there, I focused on non-traditional narrative forms, interaction & reading. I have recently passed my viva voce examination for my PhD in Design at the University of Edinburgh, The Edinburgh College of Art. My research project is titled “Interrogating and Analyzing Narrative Structure Through Comic Books”.
