Callout Sample 03: Curved, Connected Callouts

Created: Friday, January 10, 2014, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:00 am



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. Making something appear simple to your audiences is the best service you can do for them.

So what’s there to like about this sample? Here are some thoughts:

  1. The color used for the callouts and the connectors attached to the callouts is the same (chrome yellow) — and this color complements the overall color within the rest of the slide (primarily brown and white) very well.
  2. The callouts are all well aligned to each other.
  3. The curved connectors add an informal element to an otherwise structured appearance.

This example is from one of our slides — you can see the entire presentation on SlideShare.

The presentation is also available on authorSTREAM — and this also supports hyperlinks between slides.
