Alphabetical Slide Design - Ideas and Inspiration by Grace Leo

Published on

An Adventure in how we may make better designed slides and considerations. Written for the "Speak Like Smacc" workshop at #dasSMACC (www.smacc.net.au) for educators and those in healthcare.
Many thanks to cc zero sources most of which I have referenced during this presentation.

What is wrong with so many of the slides we see at work/lectures?

Some of ours include:
- Too much detail and text
- Unclear graphics and pictures
- Inappropriate transitions and animations
- Unnecessary or distracting information
- Poor colour, text and graphic choices
- People who do not care about their slides
- Crutch slides

How do we think about doing things differently?
An Alphabetical Adventure in ideas about slide design

Affordance: The possibility of an action on an object or environment. In designing slides, and the process of designing slides, think about how you can make your slides easy to use, intuitive for yourself.

Bold: Don’t be afraid to go big and bold with texts and images for slide design. Screen real estate is free, so are extra slides.

Colour: Utilise colour to help enhance key words and messages. A tip is to utilise colours from pictures you are already using in your slides. You can do this using the “colour picker” function.
Other resources:
Canva colour selector – create a colour scheme with Hex codes from pictures
Coolors.co – create a palatte and mix and match all with the help of a space bar
Adobe colour picker – for the more precise demands – pick a colour and get the RGB and Hex codes you need

Detail: An eye for detail is important – in design this includes having high quality graphics which are not pixelated.
Some of my favourite treasure troves of creative commons (Free use) pictures:

Gratisography
New old stock

Engage: Engage emotions – use pictures to enhance your ideas and grab attention

Focus: Use vectors/lines drawn by the eye to find points of focus. You can use the rule of thirds to help you. You can also use space – both white and dark to create contrast and to draw attention.

Graphs: Ask yourselves which graphs are key. Where possible simplify content.

Hygge: A danish concept of a ‘cosy’ / accessible / comfortable lifestyle (there are even books devoted to hygge!)

Incubate: It’s a good idea to make your slides, give some time, look again. Also having other people review your slides is helpful.

Juxtapose: Contrast concepts and ideas to understand better.

Knowledge: Just like an iceberg – the content and your knowledge behind the slides s

  7. 7. SCIENTIFIC REASONING why exercise helps build bone growth — Mechanical usage is the single most important factor in determining the strength of healthy bones — The role of mechanical usage (i.e. exercise) in the primary and secondary prevention of osteoporosis remains controversial — Mechanical strain causes biochemical signals which influence bone cell function and keep osteocytes vital — Osteocytes, acting as strain transducers, are able to influence bone development and resorption

  45. 45. Digesting Carbs • When food is chewed, saliva is mixed into it. Saliva contains alpha amylase from the parotid glands. This will hydrolyse starch, mainly to form maltose. • In the small intestine, another luminal enzyme; pancreatic alpha amylase is found. This is more powerful than salivary amylase and helps to further break down starch. • In the small intestine enterocytes covering the intestinal microvilli brush border also contain enzymes (in green) which break done sugars into monosaccharides.
