The reinvention of storytelling

digitalNarratWHY

Every now and then I’m asked about why we should reinvent the way we plan, produce and present our digital narratives. Why should we have to change the way of doing things that have been working for so long?

How to produce narratives for digital distribution

narrativesHowTo

In early July 2011, I wrote for this blog an article about how change should happen in the way we plan, produce and present narratives for digital distribution.

The idea is that infographics or visual journalism present a great, engaging way for publishers to share their stories with their readers.
