What’s your story?

Work speaks for itself.
Not Always.

Any piece of work is not just about the work.

It’s about two humans.

Not just the one behind it, the one the work represents.

But the one in front of it, the one looking to make sense of it, to connect with it.

So, give them more than your What- your work.

Give them your How- your sketches, photos, notes, demos, references etc.

Most importantly, give them your Why- your story.

Because, since cave times, humans are looking for stories.

When shown a piece of work, whether they know it or not, they are seeking and seeing a story.

Either the one you told them OR the one you didn’t.
