Why Stories?

We all tell stories. It’s one of the most natural ways to share information, and it’s as old as the human race. This book is about how to use a skill you already possess in a new way: in the field of user experience (UX) design.
As a part of user experience design, stories serve to ground your work in a real context. They let you show a design concept or a new product in action, or connect a new idea to the initial spark. But most importantly, they help you keep people at the center of your work.
It’s no doubt that storytelling or public speaking is one of the most feared activities on the planet.
The main purpose of this ebook is to help you cut off many of your bad beliefs about speaking in public and storytelling and teach you how to tell your story or speech effectively to any sized audience in funny and easy ways.

Who this book is written for

This book is written for anyone who needs to communicate something to someone using data.

The goal of This Book
Another goal of this book is to help you build confidence for storytelling and story writing and make you become a productive public speaker and storyteller.
What is a story?
Story and storytelling are such big concepts that we’d better start by defining what kinds of stories are helpful in user experience design.
In this book, we will be focused on stories whose goal is to describe or communicate some aspect of user experience. We will include scenarios, user stories, stories for personas, storyboards, (some) narrative use cases, and many other story forms that are part of different user experience methodologies.

As far as the mechanics go, we’ll include all forms of storytelling:
• A story can be written or spoken.
• A story can be told through pictures, moving images, or words.
• A story can be told life or through recorded audio or video.

A story can have a beginning, middle, and an end—usually, though not necessarily, in that order—or it can simply suggest a time and place.
