Introducing Click: The Presentation Design Conference

If you’re like most designers or layout artists, the last thing you want to hear is, “We need you to do this in PowerPoint” — because even the best designers can end up with a slide deck that looks like every other presentation: bullets, borders… and boredom! But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Click: The Presentation Design Conference logoIntroducing Click: The Presentation Design Conference, a full-day event held during CreativePro Week (June 4–8, 2018, in New Orleans). Attendees will learn:

  • How to use PowerPoint, Keynote, Google Slides, Prezi, and other tools to build engaging, informative, and persuasive presentations
  • Techniques for creating contemporary and beautiful charts and infographics
  • Real-world, “how-to” applications of design principles
  • Why presentations are different from traditional design… and how to take advantage of those differences!
  • How to build beautiful decks that are flexible enough to withstand editing by any exec or sales staff
  • …and much more!

Who Should Attend?

If you fall into any of the following categories, then Click is the event for you:

  • Designer or production artist who needs to create presentations, but is more comfortable in InDesign or Photoshop than PowerPoint
  • PowerPoint or Keynote pro, who needs to up-level their game
  • Anyone building presentations for sales or marketing teams, executives, educators, or leaders who need to tell a story, convince an audience, or change the world

What Will Be Taught?

Topics include:

  • How Do They Do That?! (How to create amazing and useful effects in Powerpoint and Keynote)
  • Simple Animations that Have Big Impact
  • Beautiful Type for Real World Clients
  • Design Thinking in a Presentation World
  • The Power of a Great Template

  1. As a long time user of PowerPoint/Keynote and InDesign for presentation building/creation, I believe it is an absolutely fabulous idea to add a Presentation Conference to your already impressive list! I’m sure it will be a great success.

    Best wishes for its debut.

    • I am super excited to see not only what Mark and company bring to the table, but also what the attendees are working on and how they approach presentation design. I can’t wait for this new conference!
