Hi Community!

A little while ago we started a thread on hardware. In that post, there are recommendations, stories, as well as several useful questions and answers. It has become a fantastic resource for all things hardware related. Now we are looking to do the same for Presentation design.

What is this thread for?

  • If you’re working on a Presentation and think it looks pretty good but is ‘not quite there’, feel free to post a preview link and we’ll give you some pointers and ideas.

  • Share designs you’re proud of here, so others can learn and get inspiration from them.

  • If you find a cool tool, plugin, library, etc. for content, share it with us here.

  • Have a constructive debate on the merits of skeuomorphism vs flat vs Material Design.
We welcome everyone to share links, photos, comments, questions and concerns on all things design here.

We’ll start it off!

Here is our Dribbble account. We use Dribbble to showcase our design work. Below are a whole bunch of posts we’ve written about content.

Thanks!

- Rise Creative Team



Beginner (Mainly templates, Editor tips and tricks, small amounts of HTML and CSS)

I got this today. This is a template for multi-page touchscreen tenant directory. It is build upon jQuery and works thru the Web Page Widget in Rise Vision. It requires hosting to store the files (not sure if RV storage would work; I had issues with it before) and basic HTML/CSS understanding for editing the template.

Preview: http://preview.risevision.com/?type=presentation&id=be91ba41-0ab5-42e3-8d10-61e51e3f3e8a&sho...

I will also make the entire website available for anyone to download, just need to take care of my hosting service over this weekend.

OK, so here is the proper way to present my work; FREE download for source code and assets is available: http://prodo.us/img/presentations/idt-pre/idt.html

Known issues:
- the weather widget sometimes fails to communicate with the Yahoo weather data server, which results in an error message; the widget is set to refresh every 15 min (can be adjusted), so after the next refresh the widget comes back up with the new data again; your device, the Internet connection, and the hosting server would have an impact on the performance too
- date/time is actually a one continuous line, which may result in an awkward layout on some certain dates (extremely short or long month & weekday combinations); it looks like I've got it right with the correct font size, but it has been running just for few weeks now and was not fully tested all year long; it can be easily edited to your satisfaction
- once had a hosting related issue that affected both the presentation and the preview and resulted in not loading images and broken refresh script (the presentation is set to refresh to the home page after 60s (can be modified) of inactivity time), it went away after some time, but restarting was necessary

If you came across anything else, please let me know.

Some more fun projects of mine:

jQuery based presentation. It is actually fully embedded within RV presentation code and no external HTML files are used: http://prodo.us/img/presentations/cinema-pre/cinema.html

A couple of simple and similar presentations; The Name Day presentation is attached to the Google Calendar that I have already filled up all the way to August:  http://prodo.us/img/presentations/nameday-pre/nameday-presentation.html  &  http://prodo.us/img/presentations/bday-pre/bday-presentation.html

So, I am a big fan of Formula 1 since 1992 and made this basic presentation with self-adjusting barckets based on Google Spreadsheet output: http://prodo.us/img/presentations/f1-2016-pre/f1.html

Thanks to the flexible nature of RV editor it is quite easy to add a little 'twist' to your placeholders: http://prodo.us/img/presentations/dealership-pre/auto.html

I am planning to get those out for free too, jut not sure how to do that. Would simple HTML code copy+paste from my presentation editor work? I am not so sure about the Google spreadsheet, though.

It depends, if it's residing in a HTML widget, I usually mention adding the HTML widget and then doing a copy/paste of the code from Github.

Here is something I really wanted to make for quite dome time. This is still work in progress and has not been fully tested on a touchscreen, but I rushed it through the door just because it is Friday. You can also use your keyboard's directional arrows to play. I warn you - it is addictive as hell )))
