What is Your Story? Does it Connect with Your Audience?

How can storytelling help?

An engaging story is exciting! You are inviting people to go on a journey with you.

Do you feel like something is missing when you review your story? Does it speak to you? Your audience? If not, your story probably isn’t alive yet. It needs the right setting (visual story) and core theme (written narrative) to resonate with your customers. You want to builds bridge between you and your listener. Then a connection can be made!

What are visual stories?

Your visual story is where it all begins and sets the stage. It is the first impression of a website, an event invitation, or a poster. In retail it is the first glimpse of a store, or a window display.

Of course, you need both your visual elements AND the written ones.

How does your visual story complement your narrative?

THE PROCESS

Together, let's discover your story!

Listening for the Key

We start by listening to your story. Together, we’ll put all of the pieces of your narrative on the table. Like pieces of a puzzle, we’ll then look for the thread that will be the key.

Your Story Essence

As we filter and sort through your story, we will gradually see the essence. Once we have that nugget, the designing can begin.

Unlocking the Big Picture

With the key to your story in hand, you can unlock all of the design and marketing decisions.
Balancing Design & the Technical
Expressing your story starts with a creative process, but we also keep the technological and structural needs in balance. While your customers see and read a beautiful and clear story, they should also be able to absorb the narrative easily. That means, for example, a brochure should take you from page to page seamlessly
Project Focus

If your project requires extra expertise, Adri knows people she can call on to add to the team.

Adri values projects that help people in some way learn, be better, or improve their situations, such as education, health and wellness, encouraging creativity, and communication to name a few.
