Presentation Zen: What is good PowerPoint design?

by 9 others
Occasionally, I'm asked by colleagues or clients to send samples of "great slides" or "good PowerPoint." I usually hesitate to send examples of slides since my answer to the question, "what does a great PowerPoint slide look like?" is " depends." In a world which often thinks in terms of absolutes — "this is good, that is bad" — "it depends" is not the most popular answer.

DesignBum: Living Today's Tomorrows

Okay, my tiny parakeets, let me set this shit straight. First off, this section is crammed with tasty visual treasures that you can use in your projects, art, or whatever. It's largely the sum collective of my personal design resources not including all the cool shit I've scanned over the years (though, bandwidth providing, I'll get those up as well). There's also some experiments, half realized ideas, stickers, and wallpapers on which to feast your eyes. Additionally, some of these projects contain dingbats that I didn't create. Use these at your own risk. Almost all the dingbats I used were free where but some may not be, so exercise caution. Also, you can download all of the downloads in one file if you want. But hark, and listen to the words I now speak, for I preach a mindful vision, one pregnant with poise and intent.

Jason Santa Maria | Fighting Off Design Stagnation

I’ve only been out of school and working in the industry for a few years now, but I can already feel it. The feeling like my hands are getting tied. Like I am coming up with the same old ideas or dipping into my overused bag of tricks too often. I am left racking my brain for new directions and feeling like the design world will surely leave me behind to make way for today’s new design youth. You might laugh because it’s only been a few years, but this is where it begins.

Detection of graphical deception: design variation vs. data variation. Sources of deception. Aesthetics and data graphical displays. - Microsoft Word’s Useless Buttons

It’s not bragging (in fact, it’s probably a little embarassing) for me to say that I am an expert user of Microsoft Word. I can do just about anything I want with it, and I understand most of Word’s idiosyncracies and tricks. Still, the UI has always seemed to get in my way. For example, there are a ton of buttons I never use — so for kicks I decided to see just how many.

Subtraction: Mirror, Mirror

The lesson that I’ll take away from all of this is: avoid using reflections, unless it’s the year 2016 and you’re going for an unmistakably retro and kitschy 2006 look.
