Creative Inspiration For Your Next Presentation


If you’re one of those people that suffers from creative blocks and you’re looking for inspiration for your next presentation, you’ve come to the right place. Some of our talented presentation designers here at Slidesho have put together the following series of 5 short videos to help inspire and guide you next time you’re looking for creative presentation design ideas.

1. Creating an “About Us” Slide

An ‘About Us’ slide is a fantastic opportunity for you to utilise your brand colours, fonts, and logo. It is also your opportunity to introduce yourself or your business in a way that makes a statement and best represents how you want to be seen.

For some inspiration, watch our ‘About Us’ makeover video below.

2. Reducing Text Heavy Slides

If you would like your PowerPoint presentation to be remembered for all the right reasons, then keep your text to a minimum. Having a large amount of text makes it harder for your audience to digest the information, and their attention will be on what they are trying to read, instead of staying focused on what you are saying.  If you would like to know our top three tips to reduce text-heavy slides, you can read about them here.

Also, for some additional inspiration, watch our ‘text-heavy’ video makeover below.

3. Turning a Simple Slide into a High Impact Slide

If you would like to make a statement within a particular slide (or make it your hero slide) then think about layout, placement, and colours. When you incorporate all three of these successfully it can take your slide from being mediocre to stunning.

To see a great example of this, watch our ‘high impact’ slide makeover below.

4. Creating a Customer Journey Map

A customer journey map is a visual way of showcasing your customer’s engagement with your service, brand, or product. The journey map lays out all the touchpoints in the sequence that a consumer will have with your product or service. This is a fantastic way to put yourself in the shoes of your customer and better understand where you need to make improvements or highlight what you are doing right.

If you would like to create a ‘Customer Journey Map’ but don’t know where to start, watch our makeover video below for some inspiration.

5. Making an Average Slide Look Visually Appealing

If you have slides in general that you know need to be improved visually then consider the following –

  • Decrease text if there is too much and increase images
  • Use no more than 4 bullet points per slide
  • Use data visualisation by way of a chart, graph or icons
  • Include your branding throughout the slide (by using your brand colours, fonts or logo).
  • Think about layout, placement and alignment.

Watch our ‘slide makeover’ video below for a great visual example.
