Virtual Design Talks: Design is Story Telling with Ellen Lupton

Design is Storytelling

Writer and curator Ellen Lupton will talk about how to use storytelling to touch people’s minds and emotions. How do we move, act, and respond when we look at a poster, a website, or a retail environment? How are designers building narratives in response to the urgent crises of today? Learn how to use concepts such as the narrative arc, the hero's journey, the rule of the threes, and sensory detail. This talk is illustrated with rich and surprising examples that will help you master the art of narrative and bring more life to your work.
