    17 Examples of Great Presentation Design

    Written by Kipp Bodnar | @


    Last week we shared 10 rules to help instantly improve your presentations. While readers mostly agreed with the rules, they requested some examples of well-designed slides, so Dan and I did some digging.  We gathered some of the best examples of slides and presentation design to help provide a clear picture of what great presentation design is and isn't.

    The Best PowerPoint Presentations Aren't Necessarily Visual

    Great slides don't have to be only about images and fancy gradients. Sometimes great slides can be only text. This presentation serves as a good example of how typefaces and colors can make text visual.
