Learn how to design beautiful and effective presentations from scratch

Remember the time you had to sit through an endless presentation full of charts and text and weird transition animations? Chances are you do. But do you remember anything about what was on it? Now that’s a different story. The way we present information greatly influences how much of it we absorb, which is why presentation design is an art in and of itself.Katya Kovalenko is a Barcelona-based data designer who helps businesses communicate visually, clearly, and more effectively. In this course, she’ll share all the potential that she’s found in presentation design, showing you the process that she uses with her clients, the methods of organizing information, as well as give you pro tips from a designer’s point of view.

Start by getting to know Katya, her story, her work, her influences, and some of the things that she teaches during the course.

Dive deep into what presentations are, where they come from, and how they are used today. Analyze some basic rules to have in mind when designing any kind of presentation.

Work on your presentation by focusing on the content and narrative structure before creating your first storyboard.

Now it’s time to open your presentation software of choice and create your presentation using all the tools and knowledge provided by Katya. Dive deep into every feature, from the aspect ratio to color palettes, transitions, and typography, among many other elements.

Once your presentation is ready, it’s time to export it and prepare for your live presentation. To end the course, Katya gives you some tips on how to present in front of a live audience.

What Will I Learn?

  • As a final project, you will have to choose a topic for your presentation, create the narrative structure, develop the content and the look & feel and finally, join everything you’ve learned into a complete and effective presentation.
