Event description

Description

Storytelling is one of the most important tools utilized by designers to create deeper connections with brands and products, while capturing the imagination of their users. Whether a narrative is used to steer the design process or articulate a vision to clients, good storytelling simply brings ideas to life. Join us as we learn how these Bay Area creatives stir emotion, build empathy, articulate values, and construct strong narratives that integrate form and language.
