I was saddened to hear about the death of Ian Noble in January. Ian was head of the masters of typo/graphic design program I attended at the London College of Printing. Ian was also one of the main reasons I chose this program. When I first met Ian I told him about my interest in illustration and comix — and how some of my design professors during undergrad allowed me to produce comix for final projects. Upon hearing this, Ian promptly rolled up his sleeve to reveal a tattoo of Tintin running along his bicep. This moment alone was enough to convince me this was the right grad program for me.
Ian, you will be missed.
