This is E Nelson’s design solution to the YouMedia project described in the previous post. The design is well thought out, and meets all of the project requirements in a visually striking manner.

This presentation is an excellent illustration of best practices for student design presentation for the following reasons:

  • The content is clear and easy to follow, the information provided is well written, and accurate.
  • Presentation visuals directly support the project design aesthetic.
  • White space on pages is handled consistently and helps to focus the viewer on project information.
  • Well executed 3D renderings communicate the design beautifully.
  • There is graphic consistency in the presentation yet each sheet varies as necessary (due to required content). This creates a dynamic yet cohesive presentation.
  • The graphic/title bar at the left of each sheet is consistent and relates well to the project.
  • Inclusion of design process drawings (last sheet) is cleanly handled (no messy, wrinkled sketches), allows potential employers to see the design process. The narrative at right is also helpful.

Looking at an excellent design presentation like this one, one often notices that simple, well thought out design graphics are key. These well thought-out graphics should be supported by a clear, project narrative as in this example.
