10 tips for better slide decks
When your slides rock, your whole presentation pops to life. At TED2014, David Epstein created a clean, informative slide deck to support his talk on the changing bodies of athletes.

Our UX Lead creates Keynote presentations that are both slick and charming—the kind that pull you in and keep you captivated, but in an understated way that helps you focus on what’s actually being said. He does this for his own presentations and for lots of other folks in the office. We asked Aaron to bottle his Keynote mojo so that others could benefit from it. Aaron used this image of a New Zealand disaster to kick off a slide deck from TED’s tech team — all about how they prepares for worst-case scenarios. The big picture… Think about your slides last. And now some tactical tips… Go easy on the effects and transitions. Lastly, I’d love to leave you with a couple book recommendations. Happy slide-making.
