Designing Slides & Presentation Visuals Online

You have a presentation coming up. You’ve dusted up your talking points and rehearsed what you’re going to say. But you’re concerned about the visual aid for your presentation—does it look good? Will it convey your message? Maybe it’s a slide deck. Maybe it’s a poster. Maybe it’s a physical object, or writing on a whiteboard. Maybe you haven’t even decided if you’re going to have a visual aid at all. Whatever visual aid you’re using, making it effective and appealing starts by understanding the goals a visual aid can serve—and how those goals can be served by principles of visual design and audience learning. During this workshop on visual design for presentations, we'll explore different visual styles, sketch out draft ideas, and (briefly) discover some digital tools to make it easier to put your vision on paper. Our primary focus will be on slide decks, though we’ll discuss poster design throughout as well.

This workshop is part of the Graduate Workshop Series for an AS&E graduate student audience, but we invite undergraduate students and grad students from other Tufts schools to join us at this workshop if you're interested!
