The average consumer is exposed to over 10,000 brand messages per day as they switch between dozens of different screens. As these diluted narratives shorten attention spans and pull individuals further from reality, creating brand narratives and visuals that are grounded in a consumer’s personal landscape and that captures the moment they are existing in becomes more and more important. So how do we engage these consumers? By constructing content that lives off the screen and not only engages individuals, but builds upon what surrounds them – other people, objects, and their environment.
