Subtle Seasonings are techniques you can use to build engaging slides for your presentations. They are text effects, transitions & animations you can build in a tool like Storyline, Captivate, or Powerpoint. They’re techniques I use to help your brain latch on to the key content in your design.
Prezi is a wonderful tool, but have you ever felt a little woozy after someone’s wild ride through their presentation? Presentations shouldn’t leave you craving Dramamine. Animations can be like a spicy pasta dish with way too much spice. It’s impossible to digest and just makes you feel sick.
I’m not attacking Prezi. A dish prepared with any software can get overwhelming.
Like all tools, there’s a balance between too dull and too busy that all presenters have to find.
And that balance what’s driving me to this new series called Subtle Seasonings. It’s the idea that a dash of this and a sprinkle of that can transform a bland set of slides into a mouth-watering presentation.
