The style that I was interested in looking at for my re-mediation project was the different ways that color and font play a role in creating an interesting project. I really never thought about these two features as being a big part of a presentation — I’d just pick one that I thought was nice looking. After watching the Lynda.com tutorial on presentations that was on C-Tools, I thought it was really interesting and enlightening to think about these features in the context of the audience! Before, while I was in the beginning stages of my prezi I had a standard Times New Roman font that looked professional (and admittedly plain). Now, I drastically changed my first draft from a plain prezi made from scratch to one which has a basic template — and a fun new font. See the picture below!
Because my audience is college freshmen, I thought a Blackboard template would be fitting for this sort of project. Also, the font is WAY more engaging that boring Times New Roman, or anything like that. As for the colors, they work together in a way that I think is simple, yet effective — which is really what I’m going for. On Lynda.com they suggested some really “out-there” color palettes that I think draw people away from the content and more towards the aesthetics. I hope that with the colors that I picked (black, white, yellow, etc.) these hypothetical students will be interested in what is being presented and stay engaged as well. Overall, the tutorial on Lynda.com gave me a lot more to think about than I first thought possible! I hope it turns out as good as I want it to!
