Event description
Get hands-on practice with key storytelling methods and learn how to apply them for better end-to-end product design.

About this Event

To every great story there's a bit of magic involved and so there is to product experiences that just work and deliver the right content, interactions and notifications at the right time, on the right device, and in the right way.

As the world we're designing for is becoming increasingly more complex the need for a deep understanding of user and business needs across touch points, devices, input methods and lifecycle stages of the product experience is increasingly more important.

In this full-day workshop aimed at those working with digital products and services, you'll get hands-on practice with key storytelling methods and how these can be applied to help understand, define and deliver better end-to-end experiences for users and customers, and healthier bottom lines for the business.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

Drawing on tried and tested storytelling principles and methods from film and fiction and applying them to UX, product design and business, this workshop gives a practical walkthrough of why storytelling matters and how you can apply it to your projects and organisation.

Coming out of this hands-on workshop you'll:

  • Understand the role of storytelling and why it matters for product design
  • Know how to apply storytelling principles and methods to better understand and define the end-to-end experience, problem space and context of your product or service
  • Know how to apply character theory to define and design for the different users of, and actors in, your product or service
  • Know how to apply storytelling methods to define and design the experience of your product or service
  • Know how to use storytelling methods to help define and prioritise content, interactions and requirements across devices and touch points
  • Know how storytelling methods can be used to better connect messaging, branding and the overall experience across touch points, platforms, devices, input methods and experience stages
  • Know how to incorporate storytelling principles and methods from start to finish for a better end product
  • Know why storytelling is key for designing experiences that combine GUIs, NUIs and VUis as well as incorporate AI

WHO IT'S FOR

This workshop is suitable for those working with digital experiences who are looking for a deeper understanding of the problem space of the products or services you work on as well as a way to better connect strategy, idea and execution into engaging experiences and tangible results.

It's particularly beneficial for:

  • UX designers and researchers
  • Visual and graphic designers
  • Content strategists
  • Strategists
  • Marketers and CROs
  • Product owners and project managers
  • Startup founders
  • Business leaders

It's relevant for anyone who wants to learn more about UX design and storytelling as well as how to create experiences that engage and convert

HOW IT'S RUN

The workshop mixes slides with practical hands-on exercises that ensure that you put what you've learnt into practice straight away.

All the exercises will be carried out in groups of 3-6 people. The workshop is based on a fictive case but if you bring a team (3-6 people) you're more than welcome to work through the exercises with your own product/ project in question and get even more out of the day.

The workshop will start at 8.30am and coffee/ tea will be provided.

If there are any non-swedish speaking attendees the workshop will be held in english. Otherwise, it'll be held in Swedish.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

  • All the material (slides and notes) for this workshop will be sent to you directly after the session
  • A light morning and afternoon 'fika' - coffee/ tea break with something to eat - is included in the workshop price as well as lunch. We'll be in touch about dietary requirements closer to the time.
  • A copy of Anna's 'Storytelling in Design' book, expected out late summer 2019

WHAT YOU NEED

Pens, papers and handouts will be provided but you're welcome to bring your laptop or tablet if you so wish.

WHAT PREVIOUS ATTENDEES SAY

"The principles are very broadly applicable - not just to Experience design but also to how to write a good deck, for example. I loved how it was run - the mix of information and then hands-on sessions."

- Naomi Dunne, Planning Director Mr. President

"I've not seen this particular method before and it's definitely richer, and hence more valuable than the method I would have previously used."

- Tim, Three UK

"Sometimes, when we're spending a lot of time designing we forget how important it can be to tell a good story. This workshop is a great reminder of just that."

- Niki, UX Designer Future Workshops

THE VENUE

We're on the lookout for a great central London venue and will confirm shortly.
