If your presentation is in a flat style, but you want to add creative elements and make slides look nicer, applying banners is a good graphical element to use. And believe me, there are more cases where you can use such shapes, then the title of a slide.
So let’s explore … cases where the banner will ‘save a day’
7 ways of using flat banners:
- present main ideas
- create banner bullet-point lists
- make outstanding header of a text slide
- design map titles
- present customer opinions
- illustrate quote
- create timeline
So let’s try using them on slides and see the result.
#1: Define Main Ideas
Such curved label will catch the attention on the most important idea. Under you can write short description or explanation, but don’t overcrowd slides with text.
#2: Create Banner Lists
Here you can see three possible variants of designing lists: with two points (placed differently) and 5 stages. This last diagram can be also used as agenda.
#3: Title of a Text Slide
Even the simplest banners can look attractive on a slide if you add a little design touch. Like here: on the first picture we rotated them a little, on the second – added an icon (you can replace it with any image or symbol as well). You can also use such slides as a transition to the other presentation section.
#4: Banner as a Map Headline
Here ribbons used as titles of maps. If you’re speaking on travel meeting or have one map slide, on a banner you can state the main idea, dates or country you want your audience o look at.
#5: Present Customer Opinions
Another not so obvious use of banner shapes: show the results of clients or users survey. Various colors will help you and your team to distinguish the types of opinions.
#6: Illustrate Quotations
Simple background and quote in a hexagonal-shaped label made this slide attractive for the eye. Such illustration is better than the bare text, isn’t it?
#7: Design Timelines
Need to show a history of events? Why not apply ribbons then? Even if you have many events, banners will nicely outline each one.
Flat Banners on Your Slide
Those are seven ideas of using flat banners and ribbons on slides: outlining main thoughts, creating lists and agendas, map and text slide headlines, presenting customer opinions, illustrating quotes and timelines.
