Graphic Design and PowerPoint

By Lily Robles

Many times during my work as a graphic designer I have noticed an interesting relationship between graphic design and PowerPoint. There are so many bad presentations out there that working in PowerPoint as a graphic designer seems to have a stigma to it that you’re a “bad designer”. Most graphic designers won’t touch PowerPoint.

But it’s just a tool. Any tool can be used effectively or badly and how it is used depends on the artist. Photoshop doesn’t make a graphic designer and Powerpoint doesn’t break one.
