You can learn a lot from regularly checking out the SlideShare front page. Here is a presentation that caught my eye. What I like about it:
  • A consistent theme of the images throughout the presentation: (mostly) black and white, retro images of workplace scenes
  • Original typography
  • A very simple list structure, counting down from 14 to 1
Some items that I like less:
  • Inconsistent use of colors (probably done on purpose though)
  • The grunge font and use of colors make the text sometimes hard to read over the image background
  • Putting text in vertical boxes, it looks cute but is hard to read
  • The transition from the presentation content to the "contact me" last page, the beautiful presentation falls back into a more common PowerPoint format including bullet points
