30 Compelling Examples of Visual Storytelling on the Web

30 Compelling Examples of Visual Storytelling on the Web
Storytelling is a powerful approach that can, when done right, compel users to convert more effectively than what any amount of optimization, crazy visual callouts, or awesome interactive elements can do otherwise. Much like how we expect to see a moral at the end of a book, we expect to find a purpose at the end of a site with a storytelling experience. When the path to the “moral of the story” (or conversion point, to be more specific) is laid out clearly in front of our users’ eyes, the rest of the work lies simply in convincing them that the purpose is really worth grabbing on to… which is great since with storytelling, a user is normally in the mindset of learning more about what the story has to offer. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 2011 Annual Report ( 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. inTacto 10 Years ( 29. 30.

dates Visual Storytelling: New Language for the Information Age by Maria Popova We now live in a world where information is potentially unlimited. Information is cheap, but meaning is expensive. Where is the meaning? These words of wisdom come from legendary inventor and futurist George Dyson, who in a recent interview contemplated the growing disconnect between information and meaning in the age of data overload. It would be ridiculous to try to express by curved lines moral ideals, the prosperity of peoples, or the decadence of their literature. Visual Storytelling: Inspiring a New Visual Language, from the fine folks at Gestalten, gathers the most compelling work by a new generation of designers, illustrators, graphic editors, and data journalists tackling the grand sensemaking challenge of our time by pushing forward the evolving visual vocabulary of storytelling.

Planet Money Makes A T-Shirt Why A T-Shirt? We wanted to see the hidden world behind clothes sold in this country, so we decided to make a T-shirt. We wanted to make an ordinary shirt like the vast majority of the shirts sold in this country — not organic cotton, not hand-sewn in the United States. To figure out how many shirts to make, and to raise money to pay for them, we turned to Kickstarter. (Thanks again to everyone who ordered a shirt. Why A Squirrel? The design on the shirt, a squirrel hoisting a martini glass, is a visual pun: a reference to the phrase “animal spirits” made famous by the economist John Maynard Keynes. As Planet Money’s David Kestenbaum put it recently: “Keynes’ idea was that there’s more to the markets than just numbers; there are people and emotions making decisions. 10 Reporters, 3 Continents, 1 Archipelago We flew drones over Mississippi.
