The “art” is setting
     yourself apart. 

      Style & design.
                    

 The difference between a
snoozefest or knocking the
 socks off your audience.

    Ninjas have style.
Templates are Trite
     Standard PowerPoint templates 
are ugly and don’t communicate, they kill!




             We can do better!
1.
    Have a
        Killer
         Title
      & Cover
         Slide
Don’t be afraid
 to have a bold
  title that will
  grab people’s
      attention.
At most
 conferences you
       can almost 
        tell which
presentations are
          going to
      suck before 
  they even start.
Likewise, make
   your session
 write-up stand
       out from 
 the rest in the
    conference
     catalogue.
Here’s some cover slides that don’t suck
If you’re going to upload your preso online
  to Slideshare (and you should!) having a 
            great looking “cover” can make 
                        ALL the difference!
My Transparency preso was featured on
the Slideshare front page & it got 87,169
views in 4 days! That’s crazy!
Avoid your cool fonts & arresting images
from messing up by saving your preso as a 
                  .PDF before uploading to
                               Slideshare.




          @JesseDee Rocks!
2.Use Killer
 
 Fonts &
    a Coool
    Colour
    Scheme
     …or a slick clean one!
Friends
                             don’t let
                              friends
                                use
                               Comic
                                Sans!

Their site is ugly!…..their fonts are NOT!




      Unusual fonts are
             cool
        & memorable!
          This one is
Choose
one title
  font
And one text font
This is
  Han Solo
And this is American
     Typewriter
Now Let’s
Talk Colour
  Scheme
What Are You Wearing?
Look at the colours that fill your closets 
& Colours that make you feel happy!
I like dark colours
  with punches of 
  Bright Yellows, 
  Greens, & Blues
Cool Colours
  Add Fab!
An easy way to find a great looking
colour scheme is pick a “most loved”
   palette from ColourLovers.com 


                                  ple
                               peo 
                        2, 834 this!
                         “lo ve”
3.
 
   Be
   Brutal!
 Cut Your
    Text
If you’re going to put down
     word for word exactly what
     you are going to say you will
       kill your message & your
               audience!"
         Btw, this whole preso has TOO much text!

•    Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
•    More blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
•    OMG! blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
•    OMG! More blah blah blah blah blah blah
Bullets Can Kill.




The more the audience has to read
 the less they are listening to you.
Blinking
Sparkly
Zooming
Twirling
Text & 
Sound Effects 
Are Just
NOT Cool. 
Really.
Stop it!

                       Images & 
                     Sparing Use 
                         of Text
                    Will Make You a

Your own photos:
 Time consuming but a very nice touch.

I like to use a photo full screen 1024 X 768
       and set as the slide background.
