Content marketing Strategy Storytelling Creativity

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. The model delves into the essence of a brand, unearthing what makes it tick, what it is fighting for and what drives it.

This is the starting point for all aspects of the brand’s communication, from internal comms to advertising and innovation.
