Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 25, 10:52 AM

When you want to do visual storytelling well, you need great tools and a little design know-how.


What makes a great tool? It's easy to use, there's hardly any learning curve, and you don't need to know about design to produce fabulous material.


What about design know-how though? Well, as you use the tools if you want to go a bit deeper and become more design savvy, there are some easy ways to boost your knowledge.


Hence this post by Ritika Purl about 17 resources to help you with visual storytelling.


Some of these you might know about -- like Prezi. But what I like that Purl has done is also list the shortcomings for each tool.


Gems you probably haven't seen before is Karen X Cheng's blueprint for hacking design and General Assembly's Visual Design Hacking Class. Or Unbounce's Guide to Conversion Centered Design -- now that looks cool.


I'm also going to check out Canva. I've been looking for a tool to put together photos and text that tell a story.


Enjoy these. I hope you find good stuff here.

Measuring Impact: Just How Does Film Drive Change? | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it
Beadie Finzi knows all about the power of documentaries—through BRITDOC, the film-nurturing organization she co-founded a decade ago, she had a hand in this year's Documentary Feature Oscar winner, "CITIZENFOUR," and in another nominee, "Virunga." But filmmakers don't have to reach the red carpet to have measurable impact today. We explore BRITDOC's Impact Field Guide—one of a growing set of tools available online—to learn more.

Interactive Docs for the Nonbelievers | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it
the interactive doc is still a nascent form. Just as documentary cinema took decades to really come into its own, the interactive doc has just begun its journey. New forms of storytelling are emerging from one year to the next. Some are more likely to stand the test of time than others. Genres and subgenres are taking root and beginning to flourish. You can certainly debate the success of the interactive doc so far, but its enormous creative potential is undeniable.
