Digital Storytelling

Immersive Stories for Online, Mobile and Social

Welcome to this Website!


My Name is Bernhard Lill and I’m a journalist, trainer and consultant. I’m based in Hamburg, Germany, but work internationally. Since 2009, I’ve been focussing on online journalism and on how to tell stories for websites, mobile devices and social media. My clients include RTL interactive, Sky, Robert Bosch Stiftung and Deutsche Welle (DW).

In 2021, the English online magazine journalism.co.uk chose me as one of the 45 best smartphone content creators worldwide. In the same year, I received an honourable mention for my short film "Questions of Faith: The Monk" at the LumaTouch Moving Pictures Award.

You can book me for editorial assignments, individual workshops for your online outfit or company and as a speaker on Digital Storytelling. Just contact me on Twitter or send me an e-mail.

What I did before


From 1995 to 2009, I worked as an editor, a freelance reporter and producer for major broadcasting companies (BBC World Service, Radio Bremen and NDR) and also wrote for well known German print publications like Stern, Max, Zeit, Brigitte. I filed my stories from 16 countries on four continents and wrote a book on India.

I hold a teacher’s degree and completed my journalistic training at the Hamburg School of Journalism, one of Germany’s most prestigious journalism schools.
