How to Make a Split-Up Cube Infographic on Powerpoint

Let's create the perfect example of how we can use 2D shapes to create a 3D effect on PowerPoint by making a split-up cube infographic!


Make a cube, then cut it up; all in PowerPoint!

What the heck is a "split-up cube infographic?"

I'm glad you asked that question.

I made up the term. But that's kind of what art is, isn't it?

Anyway, the goal here is pretty simple. The whole cube makes up something, and each segment of this cube represents a part of that something. For example, if you're writing up an "our methodology" slide on PowerPoint, the whole cube could represent your methodology, whereas each segment makes up a part of that methodology.

Then, you have the text on the right hand side that provides the summary (or analysis, your choice) for that specific segment.

Is an Our Methodology PowerPoint slide the only thing you can use this for?

Absolutely not. The beauty of this is we can take any concept that can be broken down into smaller segments and illustrate it beautifully. Some examples of application include: a 'Sources of Revenue' slide (where the cube makes up the total revenue, and each segment is a different source of revenue), an 'Our Strategy' slide (where the cube represents the strategy, and each segment represent a different component that makes up that strategy), and so on.

You get the idea.

What are we going to learn today?

In this tutorial video, you will learn how to:

  1. Create your own split-up cube infographic on PowerPoint
  2. Use 2D shapes to create a 3D effect on PowerPoint
  3. Create your own shape on PowerPoint
  4. Use white space effectively on PowerPoint
  5. Correlate visuals to data to text on PowerPoint
  6. Emphasize on key data points on PowerPoint
  7. Use colors and fonts to your advantage to make your data look super appealing

And much more!

As always, we would love your feedback. And don't forget to show us your awesome creations!
