Creating your visual aids

Choosing a colour scheme for your visual aids

In our series on Personal Branding we explained that the way you and your slides look contributes to your audience’s impression of you.  Creating a ‘look’ is a great way to give yourself a recognisable brand, and with the resources available online, it is actually easier than you might think.

Even if you don’t naturally have the eye of a designer,  Adobe Kuler is a fantastic tool to help you pick a colour scheme.  It lets you create one from scratch, or from the online community or upload an image that you wish to base your scheme around. Once you’ve decided on the mood and type of colour scheme (complementary, monochromatic etc) you can easily get the colour values to use in either your Prezi or Powerpoint presentation. It’s well worth a look – none of us need look like amateurs anymore.
