1. T-Shirt design “Ben Franklin”

Christian is a talented illustrator that joined us as a freelancer a few weeks ago. The request was simple: Design a T-shirt with Ben Franklin drinking a pint of beer. The objective was to sell this t-shirt on Amazon Merch.

3. Explainer infographic

(by Nurul)

Infographics are a powerful way to communicate a message. Once your infographic is done you can also ask to have special versions for posting it on LinkedIn, Slideshare, Instagram, or Facebook to make sure the right message is sent in the right format to your audience. This request was not an easy one for Nurul: Lots of data and specific branding guidelines to respect but the result is beyond awesome!

This request is one of my personal favourites: I really love the level of creativity (and it wasn’t an easy one as Evgenia used multiple fonts).

7 Types of Presentation Design to Grow Your Business (+ Design Examples)

Having a great presentation is an effective way to explain and communicate your ideas: But what are the different types of presentation and how can you use presentation design and translate that to actionable objectives that drive your business? We have compiled various types of presentations, along with examples we loved and key tips to nail them which will hopefully give you inspiration to go ahead and apply this to your business. 1. Sales deck presentation design Let's face it - no one knows your business better than you. While your product / service might instrinsically be great, at the end of the day it's really up to you to sell it (while being honest about it for course) and put the word out there. Here are some examples on how to do that with a sales deck (that you can email to your customers or place on your website to get leads) salesdeck by Plato Design Another great example is this one by LightBoard : customervaluepresentation customervaluepresentation Another example is this one by Daniel Thomas : customerdeck customerdeck salesdeck by Metro Another example is this one by Brella: salesdeck salesdeck by Katya Kovalenko salesdeck by Jan Losert Here are some great tips on how to do an effective sales deck presentation: Focus first on the benefits of your product / service and nothing else. Always have the audience in mind. This means that you must understand who your customer is and what problems they care about. Show testimonials. Let the results speak for themselves. Focus at the end on the features. Ask for a call to action: Your phone number, website, or email so that users can contact you. 2. Case study presentation design Another popular way to convey information is to send a case study to your customers. casestudy by NOPE Creative Here are some of the best practices on how to do a great case study presentation: Show to your customer you understand their problems really well. Some questions you may include are: Why is the problem important? Why does it matter? Why are we uniquely positioned to solve it? Show what steps you took to come up to the solution: Which questions did you ask yourself? What choices did you have to make to come up to the solution? What was your decision process like? Show them what the final solution looks like. How does it to actionable benefits for that particular customer you helped? Any numbers to share? 3. Brand guide presentation What's the difference between a coffee you buy off the street and a $7 Starbucks: Perceived value! Especially for designers making logos or packaging which can be abstract, a great way to increase perceived value of your work is to present it well, such as doing a brand guide by placing the logo on mockups or explaining your thought-process. presentationshowoffwork by Alina Keehl brandguidepresentation by Andréa Crofts Some of the best practices to make a killing brand guide presentation: Place the logo on mockups Show the use cases of the logo Show to the customer what was your thought process like 4.

Employee onboarding presentation employeeonboardingpresentation Here is how to do a great employee onboarding presentation: Explain them what your company is about: Mission, vision, values ... but make it genuine: Come up with values that made sense for the company as a whole. Explain them what's in it for them: That's what employees will care about. It's not about you, it's about them. Show them rules / regulations. Further resources and tips: Use tools such as Slideshare to spread the content of your presentation easily It's all about content and value first, then design second. Tell a story. The core idea of a presentation is to keep the user wanting to know more about you and that there is a "What's next" in his mind. Focus on telling a story and most presentation. Make it short. Unless it is a case study, people attention fades away after a few slides. If you need to include more resources add a last slide with "Want to learn more?" Focus on improving your speaking skills : There are countless videos on YouTube about this but it is mostly about: Speaking clearly, not using jargon, making pauses, using repetition. When sending a deck (to investors, clients) always send it in PDF format (or via a link) so that they can visualise it from anywhere. ... Read more
