Making Creative Slides [Slideshare featured]

Last Updated on January 17, 2022 by Anastasia

Answering your question about how to make creative slides – we put together several ideas.

Read further to check our presentation with examples at Slideshare. You can find hints on how to change a formal slide into a creative one.

We are proud to announce this presentation was selected also by Slideshare editors to be featured on their main page.

To start with, we suggest three ways you can illustrate creativity on slides – some more subtle, like adding pictures next to your content. Some ideas are stronger – if you have the freedom to omit the company template.

Ideas to change formal slides to an amazing creative presentation:

  • Add a picture that expresses creativity. Obvious images are a light bulb, a brain, or a picture of a famous creator – Leonardo Da Vinci, Einstein, Edison, Tesla, Picasso … . However, search also for less obvious illustrations, for example, some unusual colored objects or kids painting.
  • Use additional graphical elements that are unique, related to creativity. It can be hand drawn arrow or marker signs that highlight a key text on the slide. Watercolor stripe or doodled shapes are fine, too.
  • Apply atypical slide background, if you can. An old crumpled paper, as on the examples below. A blackboard picture or notebook paper. You can go for Retro style using some vintage pattern or wood one along with nice old-looking script font, e.g. Lobster Two.
