Digital Storytelling

Introduction to Financial Fraud

Who doesn’t love a good story? Mundane topics can be made memorable with a well-chosen story. Some interesting digital storytelling formats that I like to employ are comic book story panels and interactive videos. In this micro-story, I’ve used a vertical scrolling format, by tapping into Storyline’s scrolling panels and JavaScript. The story is about credit card fraud and the reason it works is that:

  • It has all the elements of a story plot: setup, rising tension, climax and resolution.
  • It reflects the real world.
  • It is short and sweet.
  • The design elements spice it up and add to the story.
  • The UI is simple and easy to navigate.

I’ve used some epic music and a bold colour scheme to arouse an emotional response in the viewer. I spent a lot of time on these two aspects. These are some earlier colour schemes I tried out before settling for an intense, colourblind-friendly five-colour palette.
