Making Finance Fun: An Ethos3 Design Story

Making Finance Fun: An Ethos3 Design Story

At Ethos3, we work with several clients from a variety of industries. As a Content Strategist at the Nashville-based presentation design and training agency, I create content and mold narratives. Recently, I worked on a set of slides for Mark Harmon, a financial and retirement planning advisor. After discussing the details of his original presentation on our first meeting, I discovered that he had a powerful personal story related to his interest in the financial field. But he hadn’t been telling the story.

Dynamic Text to Speech in PowerPoint

Dynamic Text to Speech in PowerPoint

DataPoint is the PowerPoint add-on to display real-time information on your information screens. What more do you need? You can display information in real-time. Change the information on a second computer, and the data is updated on your screen. Want more attention? Set a notification sound when the data changes. Play a ping when a train is approaching the platform. Want even more attention? Just say that the train is arriving at platform 4. With DataPoint, you can now choose a voice (male or female) and use text to speech functionality to announce data changes.

Apply Bevel Effects to Shapes

Apply Bevel Effects to Shapes

By default, PowerPoint shapes that you insert on your slide are flat and two-dimensional. And this indeed works well most of the time. Yet, there are situations that may benefit from a 3D graphic. It is times like these that you can apply a plethora of Shape Effects that PowerPoint provides, or just use the Bevel shape effect that makes it stand apart by making your shape look embossed, like a button, or even a pillow.



3-D Format Options for Shapes

3-D Format Options for Shapes

3-D Options in PowerPoint enable you to format the bevel style of a shape with many more options than those available in the conventional Bevel gallery. And when we say more, we actually mean a whole lot more! You can customize 3-D options such as contour, contour color, depth, depth color, materials, and lighting, almost like a full blown 3-D program.



Apply 3-D Rotation Effects to Shapes

Apply 3-D Rotation Effects to Shapes

Among all the Shape Effects in PowerPoint, the 3-D ones stand apart. For any of the 3-D effects to work, you must understand two important 3-D parameters. These two parameters are 3-D Rotation and 3-D Depth. Although you can rotate any shape that has a Depth of zero, you really cannot see any Depth within a flat object. Thus you must first rotate your object and then add Depth.



Getting Started with Morph

Getting Started with Morph

Every new release of PowerPoint brings forth new features, but only a few of them have made people sit up and take notice. The most popular of these few changes has been the Morph transition effect. Now, the Morph transition effect is not available to everyone; at the time of writing, this new transition effect was only available to PowerPoint 2016 users on both Windows and Mac platforms who have a current Office 365 subscription. Additionally, some phone and tablet platforms, and also selected accounts of PowerPoint Online support the Morph transition.

Duplicate Slides

Duplicate Slides

Why would anyone want to duplicate slides? There are many reasons to do so; you may want to such as to create another slide that is similar to what you already have. You may also want to use the same slide twice, or create a slightly edited chart than what you already have on an existing slide; duplicating and editing is easier than redoing it again.
