People are addicted to stories,Storytelling is an ancient craft; its power is timeless because good stories will always captivate audiences.
So how do you tell your story?
As a designer, it is your job to make sure that story is clear. The design story should fall in line with the story of the company, brand, website, game, bottled drink or whatever you are working with. Telling a story is important to create a lasting impression and make your “thing” more memorable than all the others out there.
