The Trouble with Transitions, Episode 1

By Eric Albertson

Cheesy slide transitions.  You’ve seen them.  You know them.  You loathe them.

You know the ones I am talking about—Boomerang, Checkerboard, Wedge, Blinds, Newsflash and heaven forbid, Random.  Speakers put them in their presentation thinking that they will somehow make the presentation more effective. Instead, they usually end up being more of a distraction.

As people begin to apply the good presentation design principles of slide:ology, we are seeing less and less of our old friends the cheesy slide transitions. . . and that’s a good thing.

Well, that is unless you are one of those transitions.
