All about me

My slide includes some nouns that describe things in my life, like family and rowing. I put these in my slide, because words are important too. I made the color of the slide orange, because that is a bright color and will catch the eye easily. Most people don't put many pictures, but I think adding more pictures and less text is important, because most people look before they read.

​The reason I chose these things is because Rhett and Link are my favorite youtubers and I also love puppets so when I discovered that rhett and link had a mini series with puppets I immediately jumped to watch it.  I included the beatles for they are my favorite musical band and have formed good music as we know it.  The picture of the frisbee is included because I love playing frisbee and am currently on SLA’s ultimate team, Brodie Smith is also a role model when it comes to frisbee because he is outstanding at it.

These websites mainly talk about how best to present a presentation, how to design one, what the audience wants to see, and how much to put on each slide.

All About Me Slide

Tech slide (1)

My slide is about my me magazine, but I decided to add a little bit. I chose to make my slide dark because to most people I tend to be a quiet person. Also, I made my background black because it matches the color of my pictures. My magazine influenced me to put the images on my slide that I have. For instance, I put my old step team because I LOVE THEM !!! My slide has lot of photos to grasp people’s attention and it has big words, so It can be seen from far way.

My life on a slide, Sell

I just used K.I.S.S here, Keep It Simple Stupid. I chose a pretty soft background color so that any texts I wanted would stand out and make good color contrast. I varied the text size based on the order I wanted people to read it in. I spaced out the list to the left to make it easier on the eyes but made it a color that would be harsh enough that people wouldnt just skip over it. I followed the rule of thirds both overall in the slide and in the picture. The green words are placed in the top center so that they are the first thing to be read. Because of how we read from left to right I places the words on the left and the picture to the right. *All of this is said in a labcoat* (To follow the ruberic).

My Slide

in 1989, a street designer named Shepard Fairey did a line of posters, hats, shirts stickers and other merchandise. Some featured the word Obey with a picture of Andre the Giant, and some just said the word Obey. People stopped to stare at this picture and couldn't comprehend what was going on. In my slide, that's kind of what I was going for. As a mixed race child, I often am asked what race I am. Like the OBEY poster, my racial identity confuses and intrigues people. In my ME magazine I highlight who I am through articles and pictures. People get distracted and loose focus on things that don't interest them. When things confuse people it causes them to think to stop and stare. That is what I want people to do with my slide. To see on the side of the road and think what is this?. They tell they're friends and just like that my "nonsense" slide goes viral.

Aim for Success

Media Fluency  (2)
The reason that I chose this picture for my background is because in order to reach your goals you have to aim for them. Without an aim your arrow will go in a different direction that you anticipated. I wanted to keep the slide simple and just used the arrows and bull's eye as the main focus. I then added a quote that I created and bolded and initialized the font. I also made the font 30 to be seen easily and clearly while making it eye catching.

This is my slide for tech! I aimed to catch the viewer by using three name colors, red, white and blue. In the fanatic word, I spelled it PHanatic, Then I added different colors, those of the Philly Phanatic. These colors appeal to the viewers at a glance, but then also make them observe the details in the slide. The words represent my love for cars. But the colors show my Puerto Rican and American pride, and the phanatic word shows my Philadelphia pride. I then Downloaded my slide as a PDF, and inserted the HTML Embed code to this post. I also gained inspiration from this website.

I hope you enjoy!

I created the slide this way because I wanted to take all of my favorites things and mush them together into one center piece. My thinking was influenced by Mrs. Hull's teachings and my own creativity. I hope you guys like it.

Well my slide tells a small part of my life and my interests. I love music and dancing so much, they are two of my main passions! Also, I plan on moving ti New York City when I grow up and that is my favorite city, so that is represented in my slide. Lastly, since I don't take a lot of pictures, I picked my favorite one of myself, and posted it. Finally I posted my favorite place in the whole world which is a camp in the YMCA!

Syeda Kalim - Slide

Tech Slide project
I put my name bigger than the rest of the words because that should be the main thing people notice when they look at my slide. It shows that the rest of the things I wrote is about me. My name is also spaced out to make it look less crowded. If I didn't have a color scheme for my slide, it wouldn't look as organized because there would be multiple random colors everywhere. I included pictures to represent what I wrote, and I also made them bleed over the side of the slide. I didn't write too many things after my name because I think that the few words I chose describe me pretty well.

Me Magazine Slide Seyni Ndaw in Tech-9016

Seeing as I had to create my own theme, I chose a background color that matched the color of my picture. The color of my room is pink, so I chose a pink gradient as a background. To give my slide some symmetry, I duplicated my picture and flipped them so they were opposites and aligned them to either side of my slide. I then typed my keyword, ¨Afropunk¨, down the middle to support the symmetry. I also centered the text to have it run down the middle using text alignment.

That's me.

​The way how all those websites say that words got to be big, and people need to see the words easily and etc changed how I choose to design my slide. I want my slide looks clean and neat, instead of too colorful. Sapphire blue and black and white made a great color combination, and so I chose that background. Also, I blend the picture of anime into the whiteness, but not completely. And the words BAD GIRL can catch eyes. So people would pay attention to it. But at the end, they will found that it actually means "Bookworm, Artist, Dreamer, Great, Imaginative, Restless, Lazy."

Soccer is Love Soccer is Life

This slide slightly shows my love for soccer/football. Soccer to me is life, its everything. All my life i grew up playing the beautiful game. Soccer have helped me make a numerous amount of friends but it also destroyed some friendships, since the game is super competitive.

  • Hi, I’m Wes. This is my slide and I feel like it really has a lot to do with my personality and my characteristics

  • I chose the color of the slide because light blue is my favorite color

  • As you can see the color scheme of my slide is pastel

  • I learned from the article that I should use colors that go well together and fonts that, in a way, relate to the color scheme.

  • The picture in the middle really goes with my persona because, unlike a lot of teenage girls, I don’t want a boyfriend. I want to pet and cuddle cats

  • As you can see, there is a burger, I think that burgers might be my fav food ever. Also, this particular burger is a drawing from the TV series “Bob’s Burgers”. Which is my favorite show

  • I put the brofist with the words “real friends” in this slide because real friends are really important to me. I really value a friend who is loyal and trustworthy

  • Like most of you know, I’m really sassy, that’s why I put the heart there. I think that being sassy is a really big part of my personality

Saamir's Slide show

My design consists of a more grainy theme that simplicity captures your attention. The quotes and name of the slide is supposed to make you sit down and think about what is really being stated on it, and stick with you. It also shows that the runnner is really dedicated to obviously running and doesn't flaunt that he runs, yet is proud enough to tell people he is apart of the running community. The things that influenced my decision making the most was which cultures and aspects that I do make me the happiest, and since I love running and is one of my favorite past times. At first I thought about dedicating the whole billboard to a specific run that I did but that wouldn't hold true to the me truly as a runner and all of the events I've done so I decided to go for a more general approach to everything.

Tamir Harper Tech Presentation

​I personally choose the design concept of my presentation is to show my life as I get older.  This slide gives a person from one hundred miles away see the message i'm trying to convey through pictures and words off a presentation/bill board. I also completed this slide the way I did so that It shows the lesson I have learned about billboards and bleeding photos. It also shows my mental knowledge of how to create a Google presentation and a clearly viewed message. 

I created a slide and or billboard that you can see and get the message miles away. The video that we watched earlier this month class kinda tough me not to feel up the page completely of non-sense. The other information that I have researched also influenced my decision making of how to create a basic but amazing slide. On a link I have found they suggest that you do no hoard everything on my slide if its not necessary. I learned that using great graphics and wording is the way to go instead of words and everything everywhere.

What I learned on Google Presentation.

My presentation is a great way to show how I learned to use good presentation, or as I like to call Prezi. The video influenced me to make a slideshow and follow exactly what she did for her prezi, since it looked cool. In my slide show i learned how to change my background for my slides without using a theme. First you save a photo as a pdf file. Then you go to the top of prezi where it says background, and you hit upload photo. You then you pick the photo you want, and hit apply all, then done. I have also learned to make animations for the photos or word boxes i put on my slides. First you click on the photo or word box and go to the top of the page and click view, the scroll down to animations. It will pop up on the side and you hit add animation. There are a variety of choices to pick from. You can pick more than one. To do that under your first animation it still says add animation. You click on that again and pick once more. For example, the first thing you made your photo do was fly in, now you can make it spin after it flys in. Also if you don't like the font or color of your text you can click on the text box and at the top Arial with and arrow will be there. Click on that and pick the font of your text. To change the color just highlight the words and go to the thing at the top that has the letter A with a line under it, and choose your color. If you dont like your slide you can just click on it and hit the backspace button on your computer. To add a slide go to insert and hit new slide. To duplicate go to edit and hit duplicate, your slide theme will be repeated. To play your slide show go to the top right corner of the page where it says presentation with the play button, and click on it. The screen will be full screen and just hit the enter button to continue watching the slide.

My Slide Design

    My design incorporates smaller images around the text. My text itself is big enough so people can read it from far away and it’s also not too many words for people to read while driving or walking down the street. The colors I used such as yellow and red kind of pop out against the black background so they’re even easier to see. So I’d use this as my “visual theme” if I were to make more billboards in the future. The images are also simple, but get the idea across. Of course if this were an actual billboard I may get sued by Nintendo for using their images, but since I’m not, I can use them. Anyway, before I thought it'd be easy to make a design like this. Now I realize that there's much more effort in creating something like this. You have to get an idea, find a color palette that works, and create a message that's not too long but still gets your point across, and I'm pretty sure I was able to accomplish all of these things.

Justice Slide

My Slide of using the Internet

  This slide is about being an embodiment of justice. To display this, I color my text and pictures with a white tint and colored the background black for contrast. Regarding the pictures, I bled them off so I could have more empty space of balance. Utilizing some of this empty space, I typed the word justice in big letters to get others’ attention. Also, by using only one word and a few pictures I made the slide more of a visual aid than I text aid and made the slide only about one point.

TOMMYYYY (slide-01)


I wanted to create a slide that really represented the “glance media” that was on Presentation Zen. I wanted you to be able to look at my presentation and get a decent idea of me, but if you want to know a lot about me you need me there to explain. I wanted it to be simple and not be something that you have to sit down and take time to read. You gotta glance, and get out. The beaver, the center of attention, flows with the background to really have it pop out compared to the rest of the slide, such as the text. However, the background is a light color so you can easily see the text and images without eye strain.

My slideshow

My design consists of a simple black background, enlarged spotify logo, and a list of occupations/things I enjoy. I chose to make the spotify logo a large part of my slide and the most eye catching point. To accompany the spotify logo I made the background black to create a seamless flow between foreground and background. I chose to make the text white so that it stands out against the black background and made it ¨calibri¨ because that font is easy on the eyes and fits my personality.
