What is Integrated Storytelling?
Integrated Storytelling is the basis for audience-centric story experiences that apply, combine, and transcend disciplines and technologies to build and grow through every encounter with anyone who engages with them. Used as a design method, Integrated Storytelling creates a synergy between the story and the experience, while empowering the audience with new roles and ways to immerse themselves in engaging memorable moments. For storytellers, designers and brands, the principles unlock new ways of bringing their stories to life. For anyone who enters the story experiences they create, Integrated Storytelling opens the door to new, exciting adventures that leave them with lasting memories.
