We all use stories to communicate, explore, persuade, and inspire. In user experience, stories help us better understand our users, learn about their goals, explain our research, and demonstrate our design ideas. Basing stories on fact (data or knowledge embedded in your organization, or even new information) will help you communicate your own ideas effectively. Tell your story well: you’ll get buy-in for the design and you’ll have everyone on the same page.
On August 5, Whitney Quesenbery, co-author of Storytelling for User Experience will present our next UIE Virtual Seminar, Storytelling for UX. Whitney is a user experience expert and master storyteller. She’ll teach you how to craft and tell your own unique stories to improve your designs.
Share an example of a story you told to motivate or persuade. What about an example of a story you heard that motivated you to take some action, or understand something new? Share your storytelling experiences here.Tweet
