Design BIG – In PowerPoint

An Ultrawide screen, in this case almost 60′ wide, needs a background that coordinates with the meeting and can be a nice background for the “standard” 16×9 presentations. For this meeting we sourced an image of Las Vegas (meeting location) and created a walk-in look adding the event logo and accent graphics.

Then for the background look used during the presentations we updated the same background image to be more subtle for the 16×9 presentation slides and live presenter IMAG camera (note: the event logo bug transitioned to their 2nd styling and seamlessly maintained same size and position as the full logo).

Visual Brand Portfolio Slide

Even the world’s largest toy company needs to show it segmentation and brand portfolio. For this presentation we wanted visual consistency (vertical bars and all white logos), brand color coding (bottom block for logo), and large visuals to emphasis things are not small with these small toys!

We could have completed this entire design in Adobe Photoshop or InDesign, but the layout is composited directly in PowerPoint. The bottom color blocks are PowerPoint shapes (with a gradient top edge) filled with colors from the brand style guide. The logos were all made white using PowerPoint’s brightness function. The brand images, while optimized in Photoshop, were sized and cropped in PowerPoint.

The result. Faster design time and more flexibility for revision requests, animation and more.

A Presentation to Explain the Presentation

This is a portfolio piece, but not a design example. We work in PowerPoint a lot. And our live event projects often use presentations that are not the standard 16×9 setup. Our job as the design studio is to help the presenters understand the event staging and how their presentation will work.

This is a few slides from a presentation to the presenters on how their presentation will work in the meeting space – yes, a presentation about the presentation. It is part staging, part technical information, and part about being aware of how slide content needs to be laid out to work with the staging and be best for the audience.

Just a peek behind the design and some of our client communication efforts.
