See what some of them have to say.
This is a very basic class focused for a beginner, but explained well. I was hoping to see some great, successful and unique designs, but none were given. Much of the information here is beginner graphic design basics.
People often overlook the fundamentals of building a great presentation. We've all seen too many different typefaces, crazy typefaces, and distracting formatting and colors. Lara teaches you to build a presentation from the ground up, reminding us that the content is vitally important and that design is used to communicate, not decorate. I really appreciate the seemingly "small" tips that add up to make a big difference. I'll have much more awareness going into my next presentation. Thanks, lara!
This is not the usual really good CreativeLive class. It's probably good for someone who knows absolutely nothing about presentations. The title implies that this class can help you design BETTER presentations. So you must have already been presenting. If you have, this class will bore you to tears!
