    Yes, everyone CAN be a storyteller (just as everyone CAN be a designer/artist/scientist/etc), but only if they're telling an actual story.

    Generating some bullshit about what your brand means to people does not make you a storyteller.

      Nailed it. More likely than not, if you have to tell people at length that you're a storyteller, you probably aren't one. Stories manifest themselves in many different forms, not least of which is design.
