Transit - How stories change their protagonist, our society, and your job Stories embody change. They transport us to distant places. They transpose emotion onto function. And the best ones transform not only their protagonists but us as well. Today, Storytelling has evolved—just like Design before it—from mystical act into programmable teamwork. And it’s being applied by the products you buy, the people you vote, and the ideas you believe. In this talk, we’ll take a look at what designing for AI, writing kid’s fantasy, and starting a conspiracy theory have in common. Whether you’re a professional or an enthusiast: Join us to learn about the new relevance, fresh methods, and dark patterns of Storytelling!
