Design slides for virtual presentations

Designing presentations that will be shared online is not new, but it’s also not an experience most of us have had as frequently as we are presently.

Luckily, a lot of the design decisions we make when designing slides for online and in-person presentations are rooted in the same questions regarding what is best for the audience.

If you consider possible output screen sizes, intensified wandering attention, and unknowable bandwidth—and then apply the foundational principles of design to those challenges—you can bring the best experience to your audience during virtual presentations.

In this on-demand webinar, we chat about designing slides for the online audience. You’ll learn to:

  • Reduce the visual noise
  • Plan for bandwidth issues
  • Reveal using builds on slides
  • Intentionally design for focus
