That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Once upon a timeWe’ve used “Tell Your Story Visually” as a tag line at B & Company for a while now, and for most of that time, I’ve been meaning to write something about what that actually means from a design perspective. It seems my procrastination paid off, because while I was doing other stuff, John McWade over at Before & After’s blog, Design Talk, wrote the very piece I’d been thinking about. And John did a much better job of it than I would have. Here’s an excerpt:

One gets the impression watching the news that data is what matters (Rogers’ QB rating is 129). But data is mainly for statisticians, and not real. Story is how human beings actually experience life.

And what is a story? It’s a life lived. Story is about risk and hope and fear and struggle and love and loss. It’s about heart and soul and the real reasons behind things.

What’s all this have to do with design?

Everything.

That’s my story for today. What’s yours? :-)
