I gave myself a challenge a few years ago: devote time to pure design play, experiment with new ideas, and post one slide concept per day. The results are similar to sketches, except that I’m playing with concepts that could be used in a presentation. I experiment with color, texture, images, graphics, fonts, layouts… all of the visual decisions that impact the appearance of slide content. Total creative freedom.
Some of the designs are influenced by current projects, others are purely experimental. While I’m no longer posting a slide per day, I will continue to add concepts that make me smile.
