On Decks is an idealists guide to crafting killer presentations.

I was asked to make a presentation to different departments at space150 on what inspires me when crafting the form of a deck and some tips for good layout, design, and structure.

Check the graphic on slide 17 for a visual structure of deck design.

Enjoy!
