One of the best ways for online learners of presentation design to really see the difference that good design can make is to ask them to analyze a great deck from Slideshare.net. While there are definitely some forgettable examples on Slideshare, all in all, not only is Slideshare a great way to share your content, projects, and ideas, but it’s also a storehouse of design inspiration. Today’s first selection comes from Clear Presentation Design (whom I am now following). I’m definitely a fan of this users ideas, and I truly appreciate his attention to contrast and unity. I’d love to see a bit more variety between decks. Nevertheless, this is an excellent common sense approach to why laziness is the real cause of horrifically bad PowerPoint.
