If you are working on a project management presentation or any report and you may need to show the status of a task. A small touch of visual creativity will be beneficial during your presentation. Here you can find visual metaphors expressing ideas of status concept, which you can add to slides and make them look attractive. Visuals are magic because they help your audience pay attention and use the information you share with them.
If you want to make your slides look professional, we advise you to follow one style and incorporate relevant graphics to support your presentation. The challenge is how to use the space of your presentation imaginatively, efficiently and economically. Here we share some ideas for illustrating status concept ideas.
Modern outline symbols for illustrating the status concept
Above we suggest several icon examples from our outline icons collection. Use them to make your presentation more visual. Here’s an index of status concept ideas:
- done swoosh tick mark and X cross as symbols of approval and rejection representing the status of your project
- icon of magnifying glass illustrated the status of the recruiting process
- Red, Amber, Green traffic light – so-called RAG indicators which show the status of projects
- other status metaphors: task checklist, play and stop symbols, question mark, Harvey balls
Creative hand drawn status icon collection
If you want to create a more unique presentation, use hand drawn symbols for showing your status idea. See the specific visual ideas below:
- collection of smiley faces: sad, happy, neutral
- rounded signs describing the status of completed task – approval, disapproval, emotions
- a male manager shape emphasizing the status of the presentation
- handwritten pictogram showing the status process
- icon of a To-do list
Design-neutral flat status concept icons
Above we suggest some variants of flat symbols. These simple flat signs have two benefits – they are visible even if you make them small, so you can add them even to a busy slide. What is more, they are very universal. Because they are style-neutral you can easily apply to any kind of presentation for a meeting or report:
- status symbols – thumb up, thumb down, upvote, downvote
- the general set of a status traffic light: vertical traffic lights shape
I hope you will find some inspiration from those icon ideas to express the concept of status. What’s your biggest presentation challenge? Let us know in the comments and we’ll be happy to share our quick design advice 🙂
