Strategy Storytelling Creativity Content marketing

Storytelling is an advertising buzzword. But before you can tell a brilliant story, you need a brilliant story to tell. Powerful advertising and marketing relies on a compelling brand story that draws people in - and makes them care. What if you don’t know what the brand story is? How do you create one?

Amsterdam based storytelling agency Lemon Scented Tea has developed a Brand Conflict Model derived from the ancient and universal storytelling structure used in stories from the Bible to James Bond.
