Start with sketches
When transforming your words to images, create loose sketches of several ideas for each concept. The sketching process should be loose and quick. It can be stick figures and doodles. Some of the ideas you generate my require multiple scenes build across a few slides. On the other hand, sometimes it's as simple as using the perfect picture or diagram. Getting your great idea across might require that you manipulate an image, create a custom illustration, or produce a short video. Focus on whatever works the best, not on the idea that easiest to execute.
Find a colleague or two and walk them through your sketches. Have them give you feedback on what works, given your audience and personal style. They will likely have insights that will improve your idea.
A storyboard is a graphic representation of your story and typically involves a series of sketches to pre-visualize how your story will unfold. In one word, it’s a blueprint. Here’s why storyboarding is essential to craft a successful presentation.
- Storyboards help you to visualize the structure of your presentation- beginning, middle, and end.
- It gives you the opportunity and space to think-out your presentation, its flow, and content.
- It gives you creative ideas. The array of tools provided in PowerPoint will not set your creative juices flowing. A piece of paper will.
- Storyboards act as your sketchpad, where you can dump all the ideas and choose the best ones.
- Storyboarding lets you focus on the idea and not the tool.
