The Slide Guru Blog




Is “Death By PowerPoint” Finally Over?

February 11th, 2011 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(NEW YORK, N.Y.) David Margolis, a Manhattan-based Presentation Design Specialist, has officially launched, a free website showcasing the world’s largest online presentation slide portfolio.

Featuring a gallery of over one thousand professionally designed slides, Margolis illustrates the fundamental principles of presentation design and visual communication.  The site also includes the Slide Guru Blog, which provides a variety of valuable resources for presenters and delivers practical guidance on how to design, develop and pitch winning presentations.

“Most people in business are ill equipped to produce high quality presentations, as they lack a basic understanding of key design principles,” says Margolis, who hopes to raise industry standards by empowering viewers to create more effective slides and deliver more engaging slide shows.

“PowerPoint has historically been used as a dumping ground for information.  But with the advent of social media and the speed of online communication, presentations that feature endless lists of repetitive bullet points, gratuitous clip art and distracting backgrounds have become unacceptable,” says Margolis.

With over ten years of industry experience working for corporations and institutions in sport, finance, advertising, telecoms and real estate, Margolis has mastered the art of combining dynamic imagery with powerful messages.

“Audiences have become more web savvy and design conscious,” he says. “High quality stock imagery has permeated into slide shows, sophisticated backgrounds are being more widely used and a global evolution from text based to visual based slides is gathering momentum.”

“I want to give viewers the chance to see what quality slides look like.  Although it is not possible to recommend a universal design style that is appropriate for all audiences, viewers will be able to identify the slide designs that resonate with them, apply them to their presentations and significantly increase their chances of achieving a more favorable result.”

Margolis is optimistic about the global impact that will have and is excited about the future, with more video tutorials and animated slide shows planned for the site over next twelve months.
