Russ Unger Ami, I think one of the biggest mistakes designers can make is to go directly to digital tools without spending time sketching their ideas. When using a presentation tool such as Keynote or Powerpoint, I'd recommend Travis Isaacs Keynote Kung-fu (http://keynotekungfu.com/) after sketching.
