Use to express creativity and personal touch

Using this atypical graphics style for standard technical topics can be surprising. And that’s the purpose, to break the monotonous look of presentation. The effect you can get are:

  • the presentation will differ from all the others. It will stand out and hence people will remember it better.
  • the content will look more human, closer to people. Similar as the sketched notes look more appealing than printed text.
  • hand-drawn style expresses and encourages a creative approach to the presented topic
  • you will present a personal touch to your presentation.

Using icons with such handwritten style on the slides will help you to catch and keep the attention of your audience on the points you want, especially if you have to present a large amount of data or complex diagrams.

Where to apply scribble IT and network devices images?

You can use the scribvle symbols on the diagrams and flow charts, as an illustration of specific points. Altering the filling color can convey a further information (red and yellow for alerts and warning, green for positive messages, blue or grey for neutral message, for example).

Here are examples of flow and central diagrams:

That’s how easily you can get rid of bullet points and text boxes. If you illustrate diagram with pictograms, it will look more professional.

Besides adding the icons to PowerPoint slide, you can use them also in other documents – eBooks, Excel sheets, also Keynote, Prezi and other tools. For MS Office apps a simple copy & paste of the data chart or symbols will work. For other tools (Canva, Prezi..) saving icons as an image and adding them as a picture will do the work, too.
