Postcards With An Edge
I wanted to bring Dan’s “Interactive Postcards” presentation to your attention because it exemplifies “thinking outside the slide” and stretches your mind to really think about how you marry your idea or message with visuals. The postcard theme is a great idea in itself as it’s a surprising approach to showcasing information on slides. But marry that with the rich design, music, video and non-linear navigation and you have yourself a unique cinematic experience.
Creative Presentation Ideas Brought to Life
The ever-present caterpillar acts as host and incorporates an organic element while Dan ushers us through his recent portfolio projects. His digital brochure, keynote graphics, tradeshow demo and touch videos burst on the screen and symbolically transform the caterpillar into a butterfly. Ok, ok, maybe I’m stretching things a bit here, but you get my drift.
The color and images are executed with shadowing and good depth perception. And Dan certainly got my attention when a hand-delivered note crawled in with a schedule of up-coming speaking engagements complete with hyperlinks. I admire his font usage that combines handwritten messages with classic typography and retro, sans-serif lettering.
Sounds That Soar
Another element that takes it to another level is the soundtrack. The information is perfectly communicated with a feel-good vibe that combines the tranquility of chirping birds with energetic music.
Anyone who works with presentations from sales execs, to marketing managers, and art directors, can glean something from this creative presentation.
