Remember old-style comics with big white or yellow bubbles over the heroes’ heads? We’ve experimented a bit with this graphical concept, and designed a bunch of hand-drawn styled icons and you can see the result below.
Here are the six examples where you can use creative or flat bubbles:
- illustrate a discussion, chat, or thoughts
- highlighting the key point
- creating commentary notes on a slide
- using them in a timeline
- presenting survey opinions
- designing quotations
So let’s try using them on slides and see the result.
#1: Illustrating communication dialogues, chats, and thoughts
Here’s how easily you can present your clients’ opinions.
#2: Highlighting the key point in a text
If there’s a big amount of information on the slide (which is better to avoid) and you want a particular idea to stand out, you can create a similar field for that. Looks creative and interesting from a design point of view.
#3: Using speech balloons as a note or a comment field
Adding notes to the presentation is not a brand-new idea. However what about using bubbles for that? That way you can outline key points or add any information you need.
#4: Showing the history of events on a timeline with comment bubbles
#5: Presenting a result of survey statistics by a bubble infographic
#6: Illustrating a famous quote to inspire your audience
Use your imagination, and be creative with speech bubbles
To sum up, the usage of speech balloons is much wider, than illustrating a man talking: you can show a discussion or one’s thoughts; highlight the key point; put commentary notes on a slide; create a timeline; present survey opinions and show a quotation.
