Let’s make a PowerPoint bar chart different today. And by different, I mean REALLY different. You know, by adding an emoji or two!
Here’s the email I got:

Please do mine next! I have a bar chart and some text that I have to present, but it looks so boring compared to what you do. I want to make something creative and fun!
I took John’s PowerPoint slide and redesigned it to (hopefully) reflect what he said. His slide is on the left, and mine is on the right. Be sure to move the slider to get a better view.
The two key words in John’s email are “creative” and “fun.”
What’s more creative and fun than adding an emoji or two to our column charts?
So the first thing I did was take his concept of singling out the tallest bar (or column, or whatever you want to call it) and make it look the strongest dude out there. I did this by utilizing icons and, quite literally, making a smug face using text and shapes.
I then added shocked faces on the blue bars, to further reinforce the message that the yellow bar is the greatest of all time.
The rest was just matching with the theme, including the redesign of the title, and the correlation of the text to the yellow bar itself.
To be honest, not really. But if you follow the video to the letter, you’ll be okay.
