There are myriad ways to apply storytelling in design, from aligning on user context with cross-functional stakeholders to sharing learnings from a project with peers. If you have a goal in mind for your story, it’s easier to achieve it with the help of resources. These help you transition from storytelling to story sharing. Sharing invites active engagement: it allows your audience to take the story and make it personal.
As designers, we can have a dizzying array of resources at our disposal: photos, infographics, models, videos, data and more. It’s tempting to use it all. So, what resources might you include, how might you present them, and what might you edit out? This ebook outlines ideas to help designers leverage resources in new ways to increase engagement and story retention.
