As interaction designers we do well at facilitating the complex
dialogue between people and the interactive products they use. But we
often neglect to consider the story that evolves through the
interactions people have with the things we make. Designing with a
narrative in mind can make a difference between a product that merely
functions well and a product that engages the minds, emotions and
imaginations of users.
