Presentations have become such a regular part of my job in the marketing world that I seem to have forgotten how good I've become at making them. That is, until I see others present and can't even focus on their information because I am so consumed by the lack of format consistency, bad photos, insane number of fonts and the overall ugliness of their slides. It's hard for me to comprehend that some people have yet to realize just how important it is to present their information in a clean and consistent manner, so the purpose of this post was to bring some light to that and how I can help.
I'm happy to have a few of clients that can admit that they either don't have the time or the skill to create beautiful and effective presentations, which is where I come in. I receive an ugly, inconsistent, mess of a presentation and turn it into one that is not only visually pleasing, but also represents data properly and flows smoothly from beginning to end. That is definitely the biggest perk of hiring a graphic designer that's also a marketing consultant - I've made so many of these presentations before that I know better than to just make it look pretty, it has to make sense. I understand what is important to communicate and what information needs to be visually prominent, so I create graphics from that perspective and even make edits to the writing sequence to help with delivery.
The good news is that this service is usually not that expensive either. As long as you have your content ready to go, presentation designs can start as low as $185 for basic projects. I am also an overall powerpoint and keynote guru, so if you need a presentation with all the bells and whistles I can help with animation, video and sound as well.
