We bring graphic design experience, PowerPoint expertise, multimedia and AV knowledge to every project to create visually dynamic presentations!
The best presentation design needs to account for many things: how the presentation will be used, presenter style, corporate style guides to coordinate with, audience size, screen and room size, what version of PowerPoint, and other key considerations. No matter what the presentation situation, TLC Creative Services provides professional results to match the situation.
The purpose of a presentation, and the slides that make up the presentation, is to visually show the message. TLC Creative Services specializes in presentation makeovers. One specialty is reworking traditional (boring) bullet list slides into “Visual Layouts”. By developing custom layouts that visually categorize concepts, slides become visually engaging and memorable. We also create custom images and design elements to support your message. We work with you to assure your content and data are presented in a dynamic, visual and professional manner.
TLC Creative Services is a PowerPoint design resource trusted by hundreds of companies to assure they have professional presentations and slide design.
Working with provided slides we update all content to master slide layouts, assure consistency in styling and position throughout, optimize images, update content layouts to fit within template styling, and fine tune the overall presentation to assure the message is focused on – not misaligned or gaudy content.
Bullet point lists of information were used by Benjamin Franklin’s newspaper. The bullet list’s function has long been proven over long paragraphs of text, but it has also become a beacon of poor slide design, boredom and lack of creativity. TLC Creative Services specializes in recreating bullet list slides into dynamic and memorable layouts we call “Visual Layouts”. We apply the same attention detail to these layouts as we do in presentation makeover slides – and perhaps even more, because all of the shapes need to be perfectly aligned, equal size and uniformly spaced or the audience will focus on the inconsistencies on the screen instead of your message. Of course with a bullet list, the audience generally does not even look at the screen, so with professional Visual Layouts you benefit beyond other presenters with content that gets noticed, is unique and is memorable!
“A picture is worth a 1,000 words”…. You have heard it said again and again. But a picture next to a bullet list of too much content is not going to change the slide. And the wrong picture for your message is going to be worth a 1,000 negative comments. BUT the right picture, with the right formatting, placed in a professional slide layout is going to worth far more than a 1,000 words!
Data rules the business world. Big data rules the future of business. But placing all of your data on a single slide is not going to make a presentation that rules… TLC Creative Services looks at your data from the perspective of the audience. We want to know the key message the data is to convey and then we can help create charts and tables that are coordinated in style, color and sizing across all slides and also helps the audience see the important data.
TLC Creative Services develops PowerPoint templates – lots of them. Not all templates are created equal. Our template projects range from corporate master templates to event templates. All PowerPoint templates developed by TLC Creative Services not only meet your styling needs, but have all of the backend elements properly setup. Our design process includes understanding how PowerPoint is used by you so the overall content area not only visually coordinates with your brand style guides and other materials, but also is setup to maximize the type of content it will be used for. After the visual layout has been approved, our template development has OVER 60 PowerPoint specific elements customized for your template. Each customized template is distribution ready and ready to use.

PowerPoint can be the starting point. Posting presentations online, distributing non-editable presentations, and creating LMS ready eLearning modules are a few of the “post-PowerPoint” projects TLC has experience with. Third party applications allow PowerPoint to be converted to Flash, HTML5, presenter video and PowerPoint slides side-by-side, and many other options. If you have a specific need, or would like to explore the many conversion options for PowerPoint, TLC is here for you.
Keynote, part of the iWork office software suite, is the Mac only presentation from Apple. Keynote is similar in concept to Microsoft PowerPoint, but offers different themes, transitions, animations and user interface. It has strengths of seamless and reliable video integration, text anti-aliasing and preset animations that distinguish it from standard PowerPoint presentations. TLC Creative Services develops Keynote presentations from concept-to-completion, presentation makeovers of existing Keynote slides, conversion of PowerPoint slides to Keynote – and Keynote to PowerPoint.
Audience Response Systems (ARS), allow the audience to answer questions, give opinions, and interact with the presenter. The benefits of a presenter being able to confirm audience understanding of key point, know how different departments feel about a new initiative or create an audience-wide game show are fantastic! TLC Creative Services handles several of the available systems. ARS results are displayed directly on the PowerPoint slide, which is instantaneous and can be anonymous or tracked by individual or group. The captured results can be recorded and used for education, presentation modifications, and other forms of analysis after the presentation. TLC is able to support meetings with TurningPoint and PollEverywhere ARS software, and other systems as needed.
Prezi is a visually dynamic presentation platform – when developed as a professional presentation. TLC has lots of Prezi experience and can take your existing Prezi, or your notes, and turn them into a dynamic and unique presentation experience.
