This comic reveals multilayered details and insights about the design and making of Paper Street View, a suite of artefacts that allow groups of older people in care environments to navigate Google Street View using a paper map. In creating the comic we wanted to account for material thinking in design. We show that comics can be used as a dynamic and visual way of presenting and composing discussions about making. Comics allow you to talk around artefacts gathered during the design process (i.e. CAD drawings, prototypes, sketches and notes) and encourage a more dynamic use of image and text.
