I hate seeing presentations suffer from the evils of too much text and basic clip art. Often, the design aspect of presentations is an afterthought. It's something people think should be done, but no one ever takes the time to do it. This was always surprising to me because I thought the goal of a presentation was to keep people engaged. And a surefire way for people to zone out is to show the same slideshow as everyone else.
I created all the branding, design and graphics for these presentations. One is for ER informatics in the health field and the other is a sample presentation template one could use for a new business pitch.
The goal of these presentations was to show that good design could seamlessly be incorporated into a slideshow. And showing different text layouts and options for data visualization demonstrated the limitless possibilities available.
Working within popular presentation software programs could be arduous at times because each one had its own quirks to learn. In addition, trying to create graphics and share between different programs did not always work how I wanted.
The key to success for each presentation was determining the branding and visual style at the beginning, before any slides were made. Once this framework was set, I could create within these constraints to build a cohesive and appealing final product.
