Project Description

Put our creativity to work on your work

Any Story Mode program begins with an introduction to story craft and a boost to your creative confidence. From there, you can “yes, and …” your way to more of what Story Mode has to offer—including our Creative Advisory Services.

Call it consulting, problem-solving, collaboration, co-creation. Whatever. We call it fun.

And we like nothing more than establishing long-term relationships with clients who adopt us as part of their team. Together, we can make lasting, meaningful change.

Our Creative Advisory Services can go in just about any direction you choose. Wherever you begin, Story Mode can support you in adopting a story—and a story culture—that will reach and inspire customers, team members, and colleagues throughout your organization. For example, we can:

Reflect Your Story Back to You

To get to know you and your storytelling approach, we’ll devour as many of your materials as possible. Then we’ll paraphrase and tell you what we learned, identifying strengths and opportunities in your messaging. (We could call this an audit, but that sounds boring, and we #RefuseToBeBoring.)

Refine an Existing Narrative

After careful review of your organization’s story—or a particular pitch or product narrative—we can recommend approaches to simplify and amplify the message.

Develop a Visual Vocabulary and Verbal Identity

We like stories with words and pictures. As your messaging takes shape, we can recommend and/or create visuals (icons, images, photos, infographics, etc.) that support the story. We can also craft verbal guidelines to help writers and speakers choose words that are consistent with your identity.
