As a designer, I can write long posts about the importance of good design on slides 🙂 However, one aspect that is often overlooked but equally important is the accuracy of text on a slide. Typos and spelling errors can undermine your credibility, distract your audience, and diminish the overall effectiveness of your presentation. Let me give you three steps on how to improve the text on your slides.
In the realm of PowerPoint presentations, the visual aspect plays a crucial role in conveying information effectively. Proper alignment can bring order, consistency, and polish to your presentation. In this post, I’ll explore the importance of alignment in PowerPoint and introduce you to the Align & Distribute tools that can take your slide design to the next level.
Have you ever wondered what the most common mistakes are when preparing a PowerPoint presentation? Do you think you might be making these mistakes? Let’s find out. I have prepared a list of the most common mistakes made on slides for you:
Let’s talk a little about charts in PowerPoint 🙂 Have you ever used a specific chart type called radar? I bet your answer is NO or RARELY and I’m not surprised. The most common charts used in PowerPoint presentations are bar charts and pie charts but I’d like to show you how to replace typical charts with a more creative one.
For that post, I chose the example of the slide presenting the business values. Take a look below.
Today I’d like to show you how creatively you can replace a typical and not attractive table with a timeline flowchart. I chose the example of the OKR setting process which contains 3 steps and has quite a lot of text, so it’s a more difficult task because there is not much area to use on the slide.
Let’s see how we can replace dense slide with a creative flowchart just in a few simple steps.
I’d like to show you how you can creatively present your meeting agenda in PowerPoint. Creating a list of consecutive meeting sections is not enough to grasp your audience’s attention. If you present the agenda the boring way, it’s gonna be a signal to your participants that the meeting might be boring too. Content is attractive to the audience when it’s visualized graphically or presented with symbols.
Let me show you how to replace a typical list slide with an attractive timeline and turn it into creative meeting agenda.
I’d like to show you an alternative way of presenting a list of the benefits in PowerPoint. Actually, a list doesn’t mean that text must be arranged in bullet points or numbers. This way of presenting content is so ordinary and common that slides with typical lists do not impress the audience.
I will explain step by step how to replace a typical list slide with an attractive infographic. I used the example of the Net Promoter Score (NPS) benefits list. Let’s see what it looks like in practice.
Today I’d like to show you a redesign of a PowerPoint slide with a multistep process with subcategories. Probably the first version will be in a form of numbered text list presenting each step. Yes, you can create it that way, but we’d like to make our slide look more attractive visually.
I will work on the example of the Employer Branding process. Let’s see how we can transform it into a stylish infographic.
Do you present the launch stages of your project? The easiest way to present stages is to use a number or bullet list. But it’s a common and boring solution. Let’s try to avoid using a typical PowerPoint list and instead of it let’s make a creative slide. In today’s case study, we’re going to use people icons as visual metaphors.
So let’s see how we can transform a static list into an illustrative and dynamic diagram.
Do you need to present in your pitch deck the key persons to contact? The easiest way to show your team on the slide is to put the data into the table. But we don’t want to use a typical table that we know from Excel. Let’s create an interesting infographic in PowerPoint on the base of the table. It will make our content more attractive to your audience.
Let’s see a slide with a standard table before the redesign and how it can be enhanced easily on the example of the slide with organic shapes.
