My slide has a picture of broken glass in the middle and then to the side it says "broken and lost". It represents the confusion and sadness humans sometimes experience when things change. The fog represents the confusion and the shattered glass represents the sadness. I chose this image because it is eye catching and represented what I was trying to communicate to others well. I put the picture in the middle because I was trying to balance the slide. I made the image bigger than the text so that the people viewing the slide would look at the image first and then at the text. I made the image of the glass dominate the slide because it is the most important part of the slide. I chose to use a black background because it contrasted with the light blue and white image. My text is light blue because it is close to the same color as the glass.
Presentation Zen influenced my decision making. All the examples they had on the website were very useful and inspiring. Signs on the streets also influenced my decision making and so did billboards on the highway. My opinion and the suggestions of other classmates also influenced my design.
