Callout Sample 01: Arrow Pointing to a Map

Created: Thursday, December 12, 2013, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:00 am



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. Just a few weeks ago, I saw this example in TIME magazine where a callout is not used to indicate text but instead a position on a world map! This is such a simple trick, yet so useful.

With a small arrow, you can add an indication to where in the world an event has taken place. Or even to indicate a city or any other geographical location. This type of representative indication via callouts can be very helpful in your slides too.

So what do you all think? Do you want me to make an entire series of posts with samples of callouts? Do you folks have thoughts on callouts to share? Love to hear from all of you!
