Callout Sample 05: Curved Callouts

It's been a while since we have explored a callout sample -- and this ad seems to have just the right callout to be featured within this series. Great symmetry, perfect choice of colors, and a callout that does double duty as a frame around the face too -- there's so much to like about this one! Look closely and this callout really is a variation of a pie chart -- of course don't expect it

Generally Callout shapes are connected to another figure or visual -- and these shapes contain some text. Callouts are not just any shape -- most of the time, callouts also have an attached line, arrow, or another pointer style that identifies it with a certain figure or visual. So in simple terms, callouts are those extra shapes with text that add value to other visuals. On their own, you'll

Callout Sample 04: Hand Drawn Appearance

This is part of our "sometimes" series on how you can explore design treatments for callouts within your slides. And here's another very interesting and organic sample to share. The fact that this sample does not just try to appear hand drawn, but that it actually travels all the way on the hand drawn path is what makes this stand apart. Even the callout shapes look so organic and different

Callout Sample 03: Curved, Connected Callouts

Continuing our series on how you can use callouts within your slides, here's another sample to share. This is actually quite simple, but that's probably the best part.

Callout Sample 02: Colored Callouts

Here's another interesting callout sample where each callout is denoted by a different color. Frankly, the implementation is not too great -- I don't like the choice of some text and callout colors which are too light -- notice the pink right at the bottom -- we had to Photoshop it a bit to make it visible -- even the results don't look too great with this color.

Callout Sample 01: Arrow Pointing to a Map

Callouts are amazing – with just an arrow and some text, you can point at something and add a whole new meaning to any picture! One of my favorite things to do is collect examples of how people use callouts.
