You’re a PowePoint guru. You know that it has gotten a bum rap over the years from all those people who just don’t know how to use it properly. You can appreciate the simplicity of PowerPoint and as it becomes increasingly powerful, you’re going to continue to push the application to its limits.
You’ve never used PowerPoint in the conventional sense. You bring together photos, illustrations, diagrams and charts with smooth animations to tell a compelling visual story. You pay attention to the details and understand how the right fonts, colors, images, animations, layouts and music can come together to create something truly memorable. You’ve even figured out how to use stock photography without making the average viewer gag. You may not know every application in the Adobe Creative Suite, but you’ve yet to meet a creative tool you haven’t been able to teach yourself in an hour or two. You’re always looking for new ideas and paying attention to the latest approaches to design, whether it’s on a billboard or on the web.
