Presentation

Presentation

It could start with a simple outline or an existing slide deck from long ago.

Even a Word doc or PDF is a good starting place. We work with your standards and resources to build up a presentation that gets the point across powerfully. Content from practically anywhere can be neatly incorporated into a presentation.

Sometimes the trick is getting all of it in the best quality possible – high resolution images, cleanly formatted text, charts, and anything else that goes in.

You might have a rough idea sketched on a napkin, or a detailed document ready to go. Either way, we can help you fulfill your vision with a solid presentation.

Say you’ve already got the presentation, but it just needs a little grooming to get in shape.

Or… maybe it’s a disaster and you need it fixed. Either way, we’ve got this. Just a few examples of what needs to happen:

  • Get rid of the wonky formatting.
  • Align elements.
  • Proofread copy.
  • Bring all the fonts and colors into line.
  • There’s almost always some other big or little issue that pops up.

There’s a lot to handle, and it would help if you could focus on the content, not the technical details.

Your brand standard manual exists for a good reason.

So that anyone creating or editing content associated with your brand will have the right tools to make sure everything appears correctly.

There are typefaces to import, logo requirements, color schemes to define – it’s all there in the manual. This can be a challenge when using presentation software, since it’s not created primarily as a publishing platform.

The manual is our starting point for new presentations, and a guide for bringing existing ones into compliance. We can also generate new, clean templates that adhere to brand standards.

Edward Tufte, a luminary in the world of information visualization, popularized a wonderful concept:

Data-Ink Ratio 

It argues for the omission of graphical elements that don’t contribute to the illumination of data, that obscure or even distort data.

Usually that means taking away default decorations that distract, and refining the elements that matter. What results is more whitespace, a clear visual that allows the viewer to process and compare relevant information accurately and without unnecessary effort.

What we’re getting at is that we can do that for you.

Infographics bring together visuals, text, and data to create a novel way of receiving and interpreting the data.

Sometimes they come from a repurposed presentation, or they can form the basis of a new presentation.

They make great introductions for complex subjects, and work well to overcome short attention spans. Some infographics go viral because they address an idea spectacularly – and they’re easy to share.

Motion can help tell the story, especially if it illustrates ideas in a way that static images cannot. 

Animation can be used to highlight certain elements at the appropriate time. For example, chart builds reveal data incrementally, allowing the focus to stay on each relevant point.

And sometimes it just looks really cool. Nothing wrong with that.

All of the animations in the clip above were created natively within PowerPoint.
