PowerPoint Gone Mad!

Working with PHD has been a regular ocassion for us to push the boundaries of what is achievable on PowerPoint.

PHD’s annual thought-leadership conference has become an event that tech, marketing and advertising community looks forward to. Every year it explores the topic that interests us all with some of the most exciting speakers.

For the past 7 years, working on this event resulted in crafting some of the most complicated presentations ever been made on PowerPoint. I thrived to elevate the conference year after year. From working on a 12m wide screen to creating an out-of-this-world speaker introduction slides

Have a look at the case video below. Everything you see is created in PowerPoint.

The brief

Make the hearts pump!

With a production as big as BrainScape, what goes on the screen should match the hype if not exceed it. All eyes are on the big stage and the big screen at all times.

By using PowerPoint I create an event wrapper. That’s everything that goes on the screen between presentations. It includes, event introduction, house-keeping slides, speaker introduction slides, break-out slides and an outro. It may seem sound simple, but the screen is the main event and nothing but WOW as a reaction from any one who attended the event is allowed.

The challenge

Make ’em go WOW!

WOW effect, is what PHD is after year after year. People are hard to impress nowadays, everyone has seen so much that we get less and fewer tricks to pull. With the screen being the centre-stage we had to push PowerPoint to extreme levels. The level that literally only very powerful machines were able to run our event-wrapper. I needed to work on the visuals as well as the audio to produce an immersive experience like no other.

Our challenges ranged from working on odd-ratios (12m wide-screen) to last-minute changes (thank you PowerPoint!). We are proud to say we gone through them all without a single hiccup. Every year. 

“To say you brought the WOW effect is an understatment.”

The Results

In short, the audience and PHD went “WOW”, year after year.

Every challenge is met with a smile – “Bring it on!”, resulting in presentations that no one really believed is done on PowerPoint completely. These are some of the most complex slides have been done, with awards to support that claim.

Together with PHD, we look forward to pushing even more boundaries and see where that would lead it.
