From the critique of my slide, I've made a couple changes. The first thing I did was remove my name. It was deemed unnecessary and gave me more room to add things. From that, I made the font size of "Going Beyond" larger and moved it upwards to where my name used to be. I was also told that the font was very basic, so I changed one word from Arial to Kaushan Script to spice it up, while still making it easily legible. With those edits, I was left with a lot of empty space in the lower left hand corner, so I added an arrow that is parallel to the railing of the staircase. The detour represents the obstacles that you will face in life, and the "cutting through" of the words symbolize "Going Beyond".
When I presented my slide, I learned that you need to have empty space in the right places. I had put empty space above my picture, which I thought looked OK, however it really served no purpose and it didn’t look good. I also learned that you should never have red text on a blue background, because it vibrates your eyes in bad ways. I learned that just because the slide is about me, I don’t need to feature my name. For the edited version of my slide, I got rid of my name completely. I made the picture bigger, so it got rid of the dead space above it. I moved my text box to the left, so there would be more space between the picture and the text. I made the text bigger, and moved it up, so there was empty space above and below the picture. I hope these changes make my slide more visually appealing.
From my critiques, I got the impression that contrast didn't always have to be included on a slide. There were mixed feelings on whether I should include contrast and stray from my color scheme. I tried to add red and different colored paint splatters to blend in with the black and white on the second and third-third of my slide. However, it didn't seem cohesive. From there, I wanted to keep the font (Rock Salt) and size (64) because it was said that the tension between the "A" and the treble clef was apparent and worked well.
I didn't want to change the black lettering to one specific color, because the color seemed too vibrant against the backdrop. Then I tried typing the same text in a separate text box and stacking it over the black. From there I changed the color of the text on top to create a black shadow behind it. I applied colors such as white, red, turquoise, navy blue, etc. Although the color shadow added dimension, it didn't hurt or improve the slide. I ended up just keeping the letters plain black. I also spaced the letters “r” and “e” in “Flores” so that they weren’t confusing to the eye. It may seem a bit spaced out, but I wanted to make sure that it was easy to read without having to change the font.
