How to Make a Fun ‘Why We Are Unique’ Slide on PowerPoint (with Sheep!)

In this week’s tutorial, we’re going to make a fun and awesome-looking ‘Why We Are Unique’ slide on PowerPoint using sheep. These kind of PowerPoint slides capture the attention of others in a heartbeat. In essence, we’re going to let the sheep infographic set the foundation of the slide, and allow the supplementing information build on that foundation.

Side note: look guys, I know what you’re seeing is not a cow. But hey, you can literally make a sheep using nothing but shapes on PowerPoint! AND, you can do it easily. How cool is that?!

But … these PowerPoint slides are not very … business-y

These kind of slides are fun and all, but they’re also pretty powerful. When we set a large space of our slide dedicated to an infographic, we are making a big statement. What is that statement you ask? Three words.

“Look at me.”

The infographic has to be powerful enough to capture the attention of our audience. If we have something like a couple of shapes on there, members of our audience would go “Oh, look, ANOTHER business-like model.” But when you go out of your way to make something like this? I almost promise you that you’ll stand our from the crowd in a heartbeat.

But don’t lose focus on this slide’s main objective. We are  trying to to ensure that the slide captures the attention of our audience almost immediately, all while associating the graphic to the text.
