Mercedes Benz launched a new print ad series in 2011 that is all about visual storytelling. The ads are both about the buyers and the cars.
OK -- I'm going to be nit-picky here and say that while I absolutely love these graphics, what Merecedes Benz is doing here is producing STORY TRIGGERS, not visual stories.
So these are not examples of visual storytelling (a series of images that actually tell a story), but they are story triggers -- images that trigger stories within the minds of the viewers.
I was so captivated by the visuals themselves that at first I couldn't even figure out what part of 'story' was happening here, or why Mercedes was doing this as an ad campaign. Then I finally saw the Mercedes logo on the lower right corner and got it.
Go view the visuals and read the comments from others. The ad campaign seems to be working!
The lesson here: know what you are doing. Know the difference between visual storytelling and story triggers. You will have more control over the medium and it will only help you get better at successfully sharing your stories and experiencing the results you desire.
