Have a presentation where you need to show the benefits of features? Or product characteristics?
Let’s show it in an atypical creative way.
We have prepared some inspirations for such slides design.
Presenting the list of benefits is the crucial part of a presentation. You want people to focus on this list. It should not be lost among other presentation slides.
Therefore use a design that will be different. This will attract the attention of your audience.
How can you show on a presentation slide the benefits of the solution you present?
Here’s my little ranking of ideas:
- The worst thing is to hide benefits inside long text sentences on a slide. Avoid using this at all costs.
- Not so cool is also listing benefits as a standard bullet point list (as I do here – it’s good for written documents, but not for a presentation that should be outstanding)
- Changing list to set of simple shapes (rectangles, squares, circles) is a bit better
- Enhancing the shapes list with illustratory icons is even better
- Giving these shapes a unique hand-drawn look is my top suggestion for you.
You can download all presented pictures in form of editable Infographics for PowerPoint Templates here.
Some ideas on how to change classical bullets into the original diagram are below. All those shapes are available in Hand drawn infographics diagrams slides.
Apply scribbled hexagons or circles:
If you need to add also the explanation for each item, use scribble head text boxes or shapes accompanied with flat icons:
Or apply ribbon as a title with icons for each sub-item. Or other circle shapes as these:

PS. Quick question: How many points do you usually use on a slide with benefits or product features? Less than five? Less than ten? More? Leave me a comment below.

I usually need to show more than 5 benefits. Plus they are grouped in several areas. How to show that?
It depends on the context of presentation – is it for small meeting of for conference?For conference you need to keep big letters on a slide. So you can't put too many benefits on a slide, to keep it readable for all.
For showing a group of items, I'd suggest to spread it over several slides, one benefit group on each slide. And one extra slide with names of those groups. Does it help?
Nice job, but when ideas is repetitive?
JosÃ©, for the repetitive ideas you can use the same layout, the same shapes and change only one element. For example change the color of the scribble filling. Or change the icon. This way you will keep graphical consistency and also show that there are various ideas. Would it work for you?
