What a cool slide presentation looks like (behind the scenes)

Thanks @craigtooms for sending this. We always enjoy seeing design work in progress. I also recently saw a presentation in a similar style at the AIGA Leadership Retreat in Portland (where his presentation was a movie of his desktop, giving the impression that you were watching him create his slides).

Graphic Design: The Forgotten Web Standard – Slides in 3 Minutes from Carsonified on Vimeo.

As part of my (Mike Kus) talk at FOWD London 2009 I played this short film. It’s sped up footage of me designing my slides for my talk. I showed it because I thought it would interesting to see the design process I went through whilst making them. It also features a lot of footage of slides being designed that never made it to the final slide deck.

You can view the final slides here:

The music I used is a track called Með suð í eyrum by Sigur Ros from their album Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. It’s an amazing record and I suggest you all go out and buy it 🙂
