Client: Take Root | 2023 | Presentation Design

design brief summary

The client would like a slide template aligned with their branding; they had recently updated their website, but did not have a formal brand guide document created and so wished for the template to include a simple guide to explain how to use brand elements in the slides.

 

The template would help their team to develop documentation with a consistent look and feel, creating a more professional client impression.

As a first step, I spent time reviewing the client's website to understand the different design elements used to also integrate into the template

1

Colors (what and how they are used):

  • Light sand and blue for neutral background and deep blue for a bold background

  • Highlighter yellow to minimally accent

2

Lines and shapes:

  • Curved shapes to create soft and flowing movement

  • single line, zigzag line or oval to highlight specific words or elements for greater emphasis

3

Font and iconography:

  • Headline and body fonts, use of capitalization

  • Limited use of iconography, only the leaf and roots imagery to connect the "take root" metaphor to the target user groups

Taking what I learned from reviewing the website, I created a draft of a handful of different slide types in order to present the design concept to the client. Integrating the feedback, I developed the slide master for the full template.

In building out the template, I provided:

  • different color variations

  • different style options

  • slide tips on how to use elements or edit the slide correctly

  • simple brand guidelines to follow when editing the template or creating new slides

Below is a sample of the slides created:
