Introduction to Presentation
Presenting ideas to a wider audience is the final very important part of the design process. At various stages during the process this will involve presenting each of the three previous phases of the work (analysis, concepts, detailed design) concisely and clearly.
Graphically, presenting designs is akin to storytelling. It requires a continuous and well-developed narrative that the audience can follow, for example flowing from issues of problem generation through to the implementation of ideas.
Successful layouts and presentations attract attention, convey a clear and powerful message, and tell the story of each project. Developing a concept for presentations is therefore also critical, requiring a common uniting approach to factors such as colour, text, layout, titling, and an overall sense of order.
