Digital storytelling for retail

customers and colleagues

  • Facebook - White Circle


Storytelling is at the heart of all we do, it’s in our DNA - whether that be storytelling for consumers instore or retail colleagues anywhere.


People use stories to make sense of the world, to tie together our experiences and perceptions. These stories influence the way we feel, think, behave and shop.


Storytelling helps engage us on a journey, connecting our emotional and rational minds.


Retail is undergoing a rapid evolution from multi-channel, to omnichannel, to experiential retail theatre.


A story we create may help engage a retail store colleague on a bus on their way to work allowing them to better understand and therefore sell a brands product. Another story may help guide a customer through a retail touchscreen display instore, allowing them to better experience a product or service.
