I started this project by first coming up with a talk to create a slide presentation on.  There was a few that I was thinking on until I listened to “Refuge from the Storm” again while on a walk.  Once I heard it was about helping the refugees I knew that this was the talk I needed to do.  It goes hand in hand with my event flier I did last week.

With the talk in mind I created an outline of the talk that would be for the speaker’s notes to help guide them through the presentation.  From that outline I looked for images that would help illustrate the different points of the talk.  With the images in mind I created a sketch of what my slides would look like.

6A Sketch image

Using my sketches as a guide, I used Microsoft PowerPoint to create my slides.  Once I was done with all the slides I saves them as jpegs to preserve the typography and insert those jpegs back into the presentation.  With all the slides replaced this the image of them I then saved it as a PDF and uploaded that file to SlideShare.  I then posted a link to my SlideShare on the Facebook page of my class for critique.

Critique Process

On the Facebook page for my class I looked at and critiqued the slides for Jacob Hayes, Beth Kirby, and Tiffany Carbajal.  For those who critiqued my slides Tiffany Carbajal said, “Charity, I enjoyed your slide and the pictures you put on there. I would watch that your edges are .5 away from the edges. Some of the slides had punctuation, some did not.”  In Sister Peterson’s critique video she told me that I needed to unify my images more, and move my text over  a bit from the edge.

I ended up converting all my images to black and white and changing my watermark to a blue to add some color to my slides.  I also moved the text over from the edge.  I decided that  I loved the look to the final product.
