Storytelling Methods For Experience Design

Storytelling Methods For Experience Design

08:30 - 16:00

To every great story there's a bit of magic involved and so there is to experiences that just work and deliver the right content, interactions and notifications at the right time, on the right device, and in the right way.

Everything you need is provided for but you're welcome to bring your laptop or tablet if you so wish.

As the world we're designing for is becoming increasingly more complex the need for a deep understanding of user and business needs across touch points, devices, input methods and stages of the experience is increasingly more important.

In this full-day workshop aimed at those working with digital products and experiences, you'll get hands-on practice with key storytelling methods and how these can be applied to help understand, define and deliver better experiences for users and customers and healthier bottom lines for the business.

All the material used for this workshop will be sent to you after the session
