25 Powerpoint presentations you won't hate.

thumb

When I was younger and I had to make Powerpoint presentations, I never really liked to do them. I couldn't figure out why other than they just didn't do what I wanted them to do. They were often unappealing, tacky and most were just eyesores.

That's back when Powerpoint was hard to use and wasn't intuitive at all. Since then I've tried my hardest to stay away for Powerpoint and have been successful for quite a while.

Recently, I've had to become reacquainted with Powerpoint presentations. Unfortunately, I still hate them. However, as my taste in design has matured, I've realized new ways to actually make my presentations attractive. I've also learned that simpler, yet creative presentations get the job done with most audiences.

Perhaps you have to do tons of presentations. Perhaps you don't. Today, we're going to show you some slides from some really wonderful presentations that were shared at Note And Point. Love or loath Powerpoint, you won't hate these presentations…

Conclusion

Putting together a good presentation is necessary to capture the interest of your audience. Notice that it doesn't have to be fancy and overdecorated, but it should be bold, concise and interesting. Creating the right presentation (or as some call them, decks) takes some time — it's not the same beast as web design but can incorporate things from it.

Do you design Powerpoint presentations regularly? Do you hate it as a technology? Let us know in the comments.
