Me Slide -Davis

​The main aspect that was included in my Me Magazine was fashion. I made sure the background I chose was mainly neutral colors and made sure that the word/s I used were in a bright color to come off as eye-catching. When there are too many words present, the slide looses it's purpose. Therefore, I chose to use only one word.

Lyle Seitz- A presentation Slide

I made my slide based off of something that people all over SLA usually think of when they think of me. I used a picture of the Backstreet Boys as the main focus of my slide, because when people usually think of me, they think the cool folders I have, all with the Backstreet Boys. I then put my name with a question mark because people also think ‘whoa what just happened’ after they spend some time with me. I wanted my slide to look really simple, so I didn’t add many elements to it. I thought of the apple ads, and saw how much they put on their ads, they don’t have many components to them, but they look really good. I also thought the Backstreet Boys were a good choice for me because they are so full of life and youth just like me.

All About Me Slide - Sandra Watson

Vogue Musica is my billboard. i choose that title because I i really like to listen to music more than anything in the world. Vogue is a very popular magazine that was made in paris a place I really want to go one day.  The background was shown to represent my love for  music as vogue shows my love for paris and traveling.

My Slide - Friend

The reason I made my slide the way it is, is because the color blue seems to be a cool color which is usually appealing to the average human eye. I used the Caesar Dressing font because this font is used by The Caesar Hotel which is an eye capturing hotel and most people look at  because of its font. The reason I chose to use the words I did is because people like the truth so thats what I gave them. I added that animated picture of me because it went with the theme of the slide and also told who I am. The picture shows me wearing a hoodie of my favorite color which is blue. It also shows me with a controller and headphones which represents me being a gamer. I left the background white because it would help draw more attention to my slide. In a way it’s like moth to a flame. I left everything spaced out but not too spaced out because this gives people a sense of organization but not a sense of emptiness. This is my slide.

I made this slide look like this because I wanted it to look really simple. When doing this I thought about Apple, the company. I looked at their ads and saw how simple it was and how they had simple colors like black, white and grey with a pop of color. Also from reading the articles and thinking about the IKEA ads It was just simple and focus around the pictures instead of the words.

All about me, Feliciano -Hayes

My slide includes both text and pictures. I made the text visible to the viewer, and short so it can be read quickly. I made the text have a color that agreed with the background so that it could be seen from a distance. I put up a simple collage that has pictures of things I described in the slide so there would also be a visual aid to catch the viewers attention. The picture has selfie, a picture of me and my friends, a picture of my eyes, and a picture of me on the beach with some of my friends. When I first made my slide it had a lot on it so I removed any non essential information/pictures.  One thing that made my slide authentic was that the color scheme I chose represents how I have a very happy and bubbly personality (even though when I get made I will become the complete opposite.)

All About My Slide

My slide that I created is based on my ME Magazine. My magazine was about my dance life, so thats why I have a photo of a ballet dancer. Making my slide was very difficult for me, because most of the time I was wondering if I had too little or too much. A source that helped me make my slide was an article called “Top Ten Slide Tips” by Garr Reynolds. I learned a lot! One big tip that he gave was to keep your slide simple. Reynolds said to use slides with a horizontal or Landscape orientation. He also said that the image should be the main part, so I thought about rather than having just multiple images, use an image as a background, and a small amount of words. I think this helps keep the audience focused on you, but can look at your slide, without getting distracted from the presentation.

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!

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

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.
