This clip taken from the BBC News website suggests that PowerPoint presentations are a thing of the past. However, if the right approach is used when designing and building a PowerPoint presentation, the result can be astonishing. Whilst the new story features presentations that are a little extreme, it does highlight the importance of engaging your audience and not overloading them with data.

News: Article 10’s Rotation Animation for Sony Europe

September 15, 2010

Article 10 have been putting their skills in PowerPoint presentation design into practise for the award-winning international technology company Sony Europe to promote their exciting new product and technology launches.

Sony Europe provided Article 10 with a basic outline of the slide contents and required Article 10’s assistance to develop an animated, stylised and branded presentation to impress their target audience.

Working from Sony Europe’s corporate template, the Article 10 team incorporated the company’s event branding to give the presentation a bespoke feel to it. We created a stylised background which we tailored to each slide depending on the content. The ever changing background design kept the PowerPoint slides looking vibrant and engaging.

To build a highly animated presentation, Article 10 used the 3D rotation styles in PowerPoint to bring the text and content to life whilst creating an image style in Photoshop, which made the product shots really stand out. Want to find out more about Article 10’s PowerPoint design services?

‘Save us from Death by PowerPoint’

September 13, 2010

Professor Judith Sloan makes some interesting points in her article ‘Save us from Death by PowerPoint’ http://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/save-us-from-death-by-powerpoint/comments-e6frg8zx-1225919886416.

There is a stigma surrounding the use of PowerPoint in a business environment, often suggesting that PowerPoint presentations are dull, too lengthy and lack relevant information. Or, on the contrary, are too overcrowded with data, leaving audiences bewildered.

A PowerPoint design agency such as Article 10 can really boost a PowerPoint presentation, in terms of its professionalism and aesthetic appeal. Sloan highlights how presentations that are too long results in an audience forgetting the content, along with switching off very quickly. Article 10, London’s leading PowerPoint design agency, provide cost-effective solutions tailored to a company’s business needs. PowerPoint Templates are a great way to ensure PowerPoint presentations remain consistently on brand and follow a recognisable design pattern, fighting off incidents of confusion amongst an audience.
