This book by Ellen Lupton explores how a strong core narrative creates engaging design that brings users on a dynamic journey. Like most of Lupton’s writing, Design is Storytelling can be used both by designers to enhance their professional skills and by design appreciators as a playbook for creative thinking. With strong, bold graphics and excellent examples throughout, this has been one of the most popular design-focused books at Poster House.
