News: Extending blog: Design and PPTX hints

Looking at our previous posts, you could see we were not blogging too often. Once every 2-3 months. Our intention was mainly to share some specific diagram visualization example.  Now we are going to extend this focus – sharing some more general design and PPTX hints on using slides illustrations, giving hints on using PowerPoint or other presentation software. And showing you more what we are cooking for you in our visuals kitchen.

However, the main focus will remain about visuals helping in communicating your message better. Why?

We pointed out three main reasons:
Why use diagrams in slides? Fast to read. Simple. Shows the context.

The reasons to use diagrams instead of plain text are very simple:

  • they are fast to read and get the main ideas (easier for your listeners understand what you are talking about)
  • diagrams are easy to create (you need no special design skills)
  • it is the fastest way to show the context clearly (with less text)

We mean especially diagram visuals, but sometimes add some more personal hand drawn elements we love so much (hope you got our Valentines and Christmas icons).
Stay tuned for more posts.
