Visual storytelling

Creatives Group

12 September 2017

Visual storytelling – a trend made popular by the caveman (or woman) – still plays a huge role in our lives today. And with the human brain processing visuals 60,000 times faster than text, we’re really not surprised.

Unlike the cave people, the opportunities we have to visually tell our stories are much greater now with channels like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat and formats like photos, videos, and virtual reality (to name a few).

At this event, we were joined by CoppaFeel! and Crohn’s and Colitis UK. They shared the finer details of how they’re nailing the trend our ancestors gave us – telling compelling stories through powerful imagery, across a range of channels and mediums.
