Get out and look around you. You can find inspiration for your presentation design anywhere, if you’ll only look.
Susan says, “This look took a long time to put together. It is intentionally chaotic. A jumble of colors, designs, patterns, slogans, icons, images, topped by inventive hair. In short, a statement – a political statement, a design statement, an in-your-face statement. Each element selected with care, intention and an eye for the grand finish. So if you think these costumes are haphazard or messy, think again. These two guys designed on a granular level using needle and thread. As they sewed they considered each stitch. Unlike off-the-rack dressers, these two have created their own couture. Like presentation design, it is intended to make a statement about who they are. Think about who you are or want to be when you consider your presentation design.”
Chaotic, Random, or Well-Planned Design?
Lucia says, “I like these two. They stand out, even in ‘Weird Portland’. And to think that I almost missed them. I was walking to the bus and happened to look down a side street. And there they were, casually walking in the other direction. I barely had enough time to get my camera up and focused before they were too far away to make a decent photo. Cool guys making a rebellious statement with their whole get-up. I’m sure Susan is right. They probably thought about every minute detail that went into their appearance – their design, so to speak. And by the way they walked, you could tell they knew they were cool and weird, and that they were proud of it. Yes, As Susan suggested, this all goes for presentation, too. Like these guys, know what you want to get across in you presentation and show it in your design.”
