Understanding Character Design

...

Character Design is a design process, creating readable dramatic elements of storytelling.

- to ensure an connection for the audience to the story.

- to enable an immersion by the audience to the story.

Character Design is Characterization.

Character Design is rendering emotions.

Character Design is creating a connection between an inner and an outer design of personality.

Character Design is linked to the imagination of archetypes.

Character Design differs between direct (explicit) and indirect (implicit) Character Design.

Characters can be shown
 in the way they look,
 in the way they walk and move (body language),
 in the way they speak (vocal qualities),
 in their reaction to events in the drama,
 in contrast of action and reaction to other characters.

Character Design is self expression by the designer.

Character Design is little design as possible.

Character Design goes beyond narration.
