Besides, you do not have to reinvent the wheel, the solution is already here: visual storytelling is considered to be a new language for effectively and attractively communicating information."

Stories play a central role in any culture. Their original purpose is to entertain, educate, and to teach us moral values. Back in the days when there was no mass media, stories were passed on from person to person, from generation to generation.
