Looking for a relevant symbol to illustrate expert level, professionalism, or knowledge? We suggest using visual metaphors to create clean distinguished slides. Here are several icons ideas you can use to show the competence concept by one picture.
Use universal flat or outline to express the competence concept
Outline and flat style-neutral icons are both perfect for professional audiences. Outline icons are light and clean, whereas modern, flat symbols will suit any presentation. They look a bit heavier than outline symbols but are not heavy-handed.
These visual ideas represent different ideas of competence we collected. See if any will fit your needs:
- stars can represent recommended people, or people with recognition for their competence
- tools to show competence in more than 1 skill
- chess figure as a metaphor of strategy and leadership
- hand with star for offering competence, professionalism
- book and academic hat are great symbols for illustrating wisdom or knowledge
Ideas for hand-drawn symbols of a competence concept
These icons are designed in a more personal style and will catch your audience’s eye. Check out these examples:
- tools, cogs as symbols of skillful, handy people
- book can be used while talking about knowledge or knowing direction
- brain to illustrate the ideas of smart professionals or knowledge
- presentation to show competence
- badge as a metaphor of recognition, recommendation
You can find the above icons in the Scribble PowerPoint Symbols Collection.
Whether you prefer a more universal, elegant, or scribble style, or you’re just looking for inspirational ideas, it’s always worth adding visual illustrations to make your presentation more appealing and break blocks of texts. Icons and diagrams will help you create organized and easy-to-understand slides.
