Narrative Development

Let's Tighten
Things Up

You have a great story in there, and GhostRanch can work closely with you to pull out the good stuff and organize it into a presentable flow. Whether you need help finding that story, distilling a bunch of swirling ideas into one overarching theme, or simply reshaping your narrative for a better flow, we can help you find that through line, connect the dots, and turn those scattered thoughts into one polished narrative.

Your Story's Strategic
Sounding Board

You might be saying, "what business do a bunch of presentation designers have in telling me about my story?" We were wondering the same thing, until more and more clients started telling us that they truly needed our fresh perspective, and that our collaborative, consultative work helped them make more sense of their own story.

At GhostRanch, we pledge to never pretend that we will know your subject matter better than you do. So, instead of writing new material for you, our strategic services lean into our unique vantage point to help you zoom out and overcome the "curse of knowledge." Using our "fresh eyes" and obsession with story structure, we'll work collaboratively to pinch, prod, and poke holes in your story until we're ready to weave together a narrative that checks all the right boxes for your target audience.

“We had some data and facts, and we understand our company and our market, but we just couldn’t really bring it to life on our own.”

Our team will work closely with you to distill the message and shape a truly story flow.
