Quick Poster or Pattern Design in Powerpoint

Quick Poster or Pattern Design in Powerpoint

Read Time:4 Minute, 26 Second

There is really a misconception that design has to be hard, and I would like to show you an example how simple it will be to do an example slide, an opening slide, or for example, a poster design. You could use a background, one text and one color, and one, for example, shape.
Let me start with the background. And this time I would like something dark. I’ll go right click, Format Background, Solid Fill, and in the color I’ll go More Colors. I want a custom color of something ranging with blue gray, something really dark. I’ll stay with this, yeah, kind of blueish darkish design. Okay, I think it’s a bit too bright, I’ll go once again More Colors, and I point it to be a bit darker. Okay, I think that’s better. Now, we need a strong vibrant color to oppose this dark color. I would like a script font, and just put one word here like welcome, or hello, or design. I’ll go to Insert, Text Box, and I’ll insert a text box.
I’ll go with Design and exclamation mark. I’ll click on this text box, I’ll place the text in the middle, and I’ll make the text much, much bigger. Before I select the font, I’ll just change the color of the text. You can change the color of the text here by going to this icon. So, what do we want? We want a green or you want a yellow. Let me go again to custom. I’ll go with a strong orange, like a yellow, it’s really vibrant, it’s in my face. Okay, this will be the initial design. I can maybe make it even bigger, and now I would need to select a font, and I wanted a script font. A script font is something that it looks like it would be written, and yeah, this is great. But let me search for a second if I have something better, like brush fonts. This freestyle script is okay. I’ll even control B to bold it up, and I’ll make it much, much bigger. I over done it.
I have this design here. If you can’t place it properly, just go to Format, Align Center, Align Middle. This is my initial design, and I would like some small elements to be here like to create a background for me. I would just go to Insert, Shapes, and I’ll try to select a shape. You don’t have to overthink it, overdo it. You can select any shape, for example, an X. This seems promising. I’ll select the X. This is a bit too big, I would make it like that. I’ll now select the same color. Shape Fill, select the same color. Shape Outline, of course, No Outline, and it’ll be up to me how I do want to place it. I would like it to be like a pattern behind it, I place it here, control C, control V, control C, control V, control V. Yeah, I did this control V. Now you have to decide if you want it to be of the same size or smaller. I’ll shift click, shift click, shift click. Maybe I want it to be a bit smaller. Another adjustment would be to make it a bit transparent. You could click on it, and while you have the right click Format Shape Options, on the bottom you have transparency. This like to this amount. This amount. Another amount. Or this a stronger one and would be placed behind here. Design like that. Boom. Boom. This one smaller, less transparent, a bit different. You see what I’m doing? I’m completely freestyling. I don’t think about the design much. I just paste those Xs. I have the word, and maybe those should be more transparent because I want the word Design to really standout. But the other objects around it, and while you work in PowerPoint, you need to think that this here will not be visible. You’ll only see the center of the slide, and this is what’s cool about it.
You can really control C, control V. Again, make it different. It appears that the X is a really cool thing to use here, and I’ll make it like that. Then this one maybe here. Maybe transparent. Control C, control V, and that’s it. I’ll not do anything else, and I think for a few seconds of work, this could be a really cool slide to use, and it maybe would be like a poster or a quick design, and let me preview the slide right now. This is a really quick idea for a pattern. I don’t say that it’s a great design or something advanced. I just want you to know that you can work with the shapes within PowerPoint and with cool fonts, and just with those objects and two strong opposing coloristics, you can create a really nice poster or deign. Okay, I took the Xs and placed them in the middle of the screen, and this would be my result. The first slide would look like that, and the second slide would look like that. I hope you did like this simple and quick tutorial. Thank you for your attention in this one, and see you in the next one.
