Design Aesthetics for Presentation

At 360i, I was asked to develop and teach a workshop about design skills for presenters at the company. Intended for non-designers—folks in Accounts, Media, Insights & Planning, Technology, Legal—this 2-hour class covers everything from designing for the correct audience, design & color theory, image & screen resolution, and practical PowerPoint tools for editing images, lines, and shapes.

Since the first pilot workshop in May 2013, I have taught this workshop to over 190 of my coworkers. Additionally, I presented a condensed version of this presentation—10 Tips for Better Presentation Design—at the July 2013 company all-staff meeting.
