Grab your tone _ After you have an outline and a good idea for what you want to do, it's time to figure out your tone and concept. This step helps you figure out your color scheme, your typography, your images and in some cases, your flow. Mash it all together _ It's time to put it all together as you now have everything you need. Your plan or outline helps you figure out exactly what you will present, your template gives you the organization you need to flow through the presentation beautifully, and your tone gives you the guidance for design you need including everything from typography to color scheme to images.
So here are seven ways to visualize your ideas _ your thoughts; what's in your head _ with PowerPoint (or similar) presentation software. Idea Concept Sketch _ Use PowerPoint shapes to sketch your idea. You can draw all kinds of figures and shapes, and add text, directional flow, highlights, and more with arrows and other shapes available in the "Insert Shapes" area. Circles, squares, lines, arrows, and the like can be combined to create drawings that, when grouped together, copied, and pasted as graphics, you can insert into documents, presentations, email and texts or post to social media.
