Visual Story Extravaganza -- But Can a Visual Image Tell a Story? - A Storied Career

Visual Story Extravaganza -- But Can a Visual Image Tell a Story? - A Storied Career | Unstick Your Stories Using Visuals | Scoop.it

Here's a great post from Katherine Hansen about different areas of visual storytelling.  She discusses photographs, graphic facilitation, videos, museum objects, and clothing lines.  

 

I think the biggest distinction to make here is that most visual storytelling (other than videos) are actually story triggers -- they trigger stories within us.  They either remind us of stories we already know, or trigger our creativity to create new ones.

 

All of the areas Hansen talks about here are applicable to businesses.  How are you using visual storytelling to trigger stories within your customers or prospects?

Storytelling and Curation: digital technology allows us to tell tales in innovative new ways | The Guardian

Storytelling and Curation: digital technology allows us to tell tales in innovative new ways | The Guardian | Unstick Your Stories Using Visuals | Scoop.it

Human experience is a series of never-ending, overlapping stories bumping into one another in expected and unexpected ways. Our days are made up of personal narratives of good and evil, joy and conflict, magic potions and angry gnomes.

 

They are naturally co-creations based on a push and pull of projection and interpretation. We interpret, analyse and synthesise the characters and events in our lives to help us make sense of the world, and these have been translated by professionals into folk tales, myths, legends, pantomime, bestsellers, soap operas and Hollywood blockbusters.

 

Storytellers are simply curators of information who finesse the elements of a yarn into a beginning, middle and end.

 

But the tools they use to tell tales are evolving, becoming more modular and tailored, more participatory and more engaging than just the printed word or the moving image.....

The Anatomy Of An Infographic: 5 Steps To Create A Powerful Visual

The Anatomy Of An Infographic: 5 Steps To Create A Powerful Visual | Unstick Your Stories Using Visuals | Scoop.it

Information is very powerful but for the most bit it is bland and unimaginative. Infographics channel information in a visually pleasing, instantly understandable manner, making it not only powerful, but extremely beautiful. Once used predominantly to make maps more approachable, scientific charts less daunting and as key learning tools for children, inforgraphics have now permeated all aspects of the modern world.
