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.
Vision board _ Instead of cutting pictures out of magazines and gluing them to poster board _ which is a great activity in itself when you want to do this _ find royalty_free photos online, buy pictures through websites that sell them, or do some cutting_and_pasting from online magazines (which you can do by using the "PrtScrn" key on your keyboard, "Paste"ing into PowerPoint, and then cropping only what you want for your vision board). Stack the pictures into one slide. "Bring to Front" and "Send to Back" individual photos to layer them; tilt them different ways for the appearance of pictures askew on poster board. When you have the "vision board" looking the way you want, "Group" everything together and "Save As Picture" onto your hard drive. If you want your digital vision board to be portable so you can carry your vision board with you at all times, upload the graphic you created to your mobile device.
