PRESENTATION DESIGN & PRODUCTION
As Creative Director for two successful start-up companies, I have designed and produced countless PowerPoint, Keynote and Google Slide presentations. I have made sales pitches, product infoslides, business outlines and partnership proposals. I can implement animations, transitions, audio/video, illustrations and more. I also have a knack for designing infographics from complex ideas.
INTEL + DELL: BETTER TOGETHER PRESENTATION
Here's an edited preview of a presentation I designed on contract with Muddy Gecko for the Intel-Dell team to detail the advantages of Intel & Dell products working together. The audience was high-level sales, though it was important to simplify messaging throughout. I designed the two-brand template and implemented mostly Intel-branded elements by request from the stakeholders.
HITACHI VANTARA: STRONGER TOGETHER CONFERENCE SLIDES
Here are some select slides from a massive amount I designed for a fully remote conference for Hitachi Vantara employees. There was a new CEO, some new strategies, and the need to bond employees together during the Covid 19 pandemic when everyone was working from home. The final deliverable for these slides was a video with the speaker layered over the top of the slides, produced by another team. My job was to design all of the images, graphics, typography and consistent iconography for the PPTs and video backdrops for each of these sessions. I was initially to second chair on this project due to my limited bandwidth - but in the end I was appointed creative director and had another designer to supported me in this very large endeavor.
See the video production here.
AWS RANSOMEWARE PRESENTATION
This is a presentation I was contracted to design for AWS. Above is a highly edited preview - though you can see some nifty animations here and there, as well as some artwork I modified to pair with the copy. AWS has a very strict brand template (OK, EVERYONE does!) though I did have some flexibility with iconography.
This is a graphic I designed for a Cloudera presentation, which was also eventually used in collateral to explain the enterprise cloud journey. It was one of those projects which I only had a vague concept to begin with, and needed to develop the idea into a visual.
URS ROBOT NEXMOW SALES DECK
Like a Roomba - but for your lawn - I worked with the founders of URSRobot NexMow's robotic lawn mower to create this presentation explaining how the product works. A pretty genius combination of satellites, mobile app and mowing devices...these little mowers can cover a lot of ground for a much better environmental footprint than traditional mowers.
CELLAR EYE PITCH DECK
Alongside developing the website for CellarEye, I was the chief designer of the pitch deck for this start up. Working on contract with Muddy Gecko, and a very talented marketing writer and strategist, I designed the template and all of the graphics of this presentation.
I was asked to design a presentation to hi-light Mircon's position and efforts to improve diversity, equality and inclusion of their employees, suppliers and manufacturers. Starting with an outline in a Word Document and two existing slides, I applied the new DEI style guide, designed and animated content, and even wrote some of the headlines and content copy. I don't fancy myself a writer, but now and then I am inspired.
MICRON DIVERSITY, EQUALITY & INCLUSION PRESENTATION
T. ROWE PRICE RETIREMENT PLANNING WEBINAR DECK
Here's a deck I made for a T. Rowe Price Webinar. I collaborated with the event producer and went through several rounds of design and content. They allowed a few subtle animations to help the slides flow in a pleasing way. Sometimes fairly dry content can be made much more interesting with just a little motion.
LAKANTO COMPANY PITCH
This presentation was started in Keynote then given to me to rework in PowerPoint. I was asked to polish the design, add audio and video as well as several animations and strategic transitions. Much of the presentation required editing to reflect the Lakanto brand, which I found to be quite unique and fresh.
MICROSOFT WORKSHOP MATERIALS
I was contracted by INVISO to help them prepare PPT decks for several Microsoft workshops. The key ask was to make them accessible to people with vision disabilities. The built-in tool to set alt-text and element reading order is very handy. Especially with the complicated infographics and animated slides. I also used a cool color analyzer tool to determine contrast ratio, ensuring the text is as readable as possible.
AWS WEBINAR & TRAINING DECKS
Here are a couple of decks I recently worked on for AWS. The training deck was handed to me in a completely different style and I had a couple of hours to re-work the master into the new required style. The webinar deck I created based on a provided template and content. I had designed a couple of icons for this one, too. The biggest challenge was the build at :30. Lots of elements and animations all on one screen. (Some of the text has been changed for proprietary reasons).
AETNA PARTNERSHIP OVERVIEW
Here are several slides from a presentation deck I designed for Atena outlining the Healthagen partnership that included Medicity, the healthcare IT start-up where I was Creative Director.
RESPECT NETWORK PARTNERSHIP DECK
While I was Creative Director for Respect Network, much effort was put into creating partnerships and alliances. One of these pitches I designed was made to Evernym, who then acquired Respect Network into its company. Now and then I do contract projects for them, and for their affiliate the Sovrin Foundation (working with my former Respect Network colleagues).
MEDICITY PRODUCT OVERVIEW
Medicity's offering evolved over the course of development and with the addition of partners and applications. As these changes occurred, I was asked to create and modify infographics and presentations for the sales team. See more MEDICITY here.
RESPECT NETWORK PRESENTATIONS
I designed sections of these decks for Respect Network to include in various presentations, which include infographics to explain the service framework and applications.
