The Art of Effective Narrative, With Senongo Akpem
What does storytelling mean in a digital world? We have augmented reality, touch screens, and even geolocation technology to tell everything from mysteries to childrens' stories to our audiences.
In this beautifully illustrated presentation, Nigerian-born designer and illustrator Senongo Akpem gives you 5 powerful techniques for ensuring your story will really stick in your audience’s head. He’ll also share how effective storytelling can be combined with digital multiscreen platforms to enhance audience participation, leading directly to higher conversion rates.
Senongo is a Nigerian American designer and illustrator in New York City. He lived and worked for 7 years in Kyoto, Japan as a designer, where he started Colorcult, a custom handbag and accessories company. He recently moved to New York City, because you can't find good Thai food in Kyoto. Senongo works for Cambridge University Press, where he creates digital experiences for English teachers and students. In 2011, Senongo started Pixel Fable, a digital archive of African folktales. He lives in Queens and is a sci-fi fanatic.
