Why did you make the slide look the way it does?
I created this slide the way it is for several reasons. One, I chose to to put my text size somewhat big since i dont have much things to put in my slide besides the two topics in the slide. I got this advice from Presentation Zen. Also the two topics i put up in my slide is the reason why i act the way i am. Also i kept my slide simple because as stated in a article i read its better to keep it simple, than to have it filled with text or information.
What influenced your decision making?
The two topics on my slides represent the way i act and why i act this way. It explains the way i think and who those two things changed the way it think. Also websites i read helped me make the slide look the way it is. I read that it is good to make it visual.
My slide is all about the contrast and simplicity. I planed to have my text be big enough to see, but small enough to show the enormity of the idea. I thought about bleeding the sky in some sort, but my conclusion was that bleeding would lose the grasp of the subject. The colors were deliberate. I chose the blue and white to describe the sense of peace, but the red text shows how within peace there is conflict. I chose red instead of another color because the red melded and blended with the blue and white creating almost this harmony within the contrast of colors(Think of the US flag). Having my text at the bottom is supposed to be a starting point for curiosity leaving all that white (not entirely) space open to wander. Even the text type was chosen with intention. The thought behind was that the semi soft text represents a sort of boundary how it can be straight (like the words) but soft (the individual letters). While we see the text, you notice it is capitalized? Well I did that to show that each word is a part of a sentence like a minute is part of an hour. Lastly I touched upon emptiness to make this slide a full circle of my life by showing how much is left to be explored.
