Powerpoint presentations

The powerpoint presentation has come a long way from the original Microsoft word application. Its use today has been developed into a semi multimedia application designed to capture the audience’s imagination as well as effectively conveying your message. The powerpoint presentation today is a user-friendly office tool essential to any management position. The accurate use of these presentation along with unique corporate identity design however lays in the hands of professional designers. Many companies today make use of professional design companies to create unique templates that display the visual recognisable components of their company.

To get back to the powerpoint presentation being a semi multimedia application – unique features added to the original powerpoint Microsoft application has now empowered the user (and ultimately the creator) of the powerpoint presentation to create movement and depth to their seemingly dull presentation, captivating their target market in new and exiting ways.

What makes a good powerpoint presentation?

Occasionally, I’m asked by colleagues or clients to send samples of “great slides” or “good PowerPoint Presentations.” I usually hesitate to send examples of slides since my answer to the question, “what does a great PowerPoint presentation look like?” is “…it 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. If there is one important precept worth following with powerpoint presentations, it is the idea of simplicity. The best visuals are often ones designed with an eye toward simplicity. Yet, this says nothing about the specifics of a visual presentation. That will depend on the content and context. For example, even the best visuals used in support of a presentation for one audience on, say, quantum mechanics, may appear complicated and confusing to a different audience.

Common design problems with standard Powerpoint Presentation templates

If you have ever been at a powerpoint presentation you would most probably say, “oh I have seen that template before . . . “ and probably comment on the use of the visuals added into a generic presentation. If you present to impress, this would not be the required response from your listeners. You captivating strategy have backfired badly and there is no recovery from this point on.

Prevention is better than cure…

Having your powerpoint presentation designed by professionals is most likely your safest bet. Not only because the design team will create a fresh and new visual aspect to your powerpoint presentation but you will most definitely not be faced with a “home-made” budget production of a topic that should have said the exact opposite. For this reason alone it would not only be wise but also cost effective in the long run to make use of a professional design house to create that special unique and memorable powerpoint presentation template that will portray the right image for your company.
