Before: I chose black so the white letters and white earphones are emphasized.
The picture of me is very simple and I have a very intricate swirl of thoughts representing music. I speak music to represent I represent it. Note that the word "are" is not very important, so it is relatively smaller.
From http://zachholman.com/posts/slide-design-for-developers/, I learned that a slide should not cram info. From http://www.presentationzen.com/presentationzen/2008/08/learning-from-the-design-around-you-ikea.html I learned that there are certain colors that contrast , so I have a black background. From,http://www.apple.com/iwork/tutorials/#pages-hero I learned how to use Keynote’s Alpha.
http://buzzmarketing.com/2010/11/26/advertising-techniques/ taught me to use the word “you” or “your” far more than “I” “me” or “we.” And to make things pop out.
I bled my picture out the side and made the headphones pop out against the black. My thoughts of music spiral from my head into ooblivion. There is a minimum of words on my slide. They are absolutely relavant. And they are tilted slightly
After the constructive criticism, I made my head less choppy-looking by making it curve inward. Also, I made my face and the thoughts bigger because it is the main point. Instead of speaking, "melodies" , I made it a Larger , more intricate letters underneath it.
