An example of how the presentation appears to the editor
A sample sequence of the presentation. Some data were correct and some were placeholders - either for images, or for actual numbers
In few parts I was forced to compromise on technical shortcomings for using an online live format. Say, there are no available text outlines or drop shadows subtle enough to protect text and keep the reading experience. Check out the 3rd slide, for instance.
Placeholders use (while designing a presentation like this) gives me a great deal of flexibility. I can suggest a page layout while clients can influence and ask for changes on the fly. And since the slideshow itself is online, it is always up-to-date for any editor.
Another trick to get it right: instead of the official corporate alphabet families (Myriad and Futura), I leaned on Google Fonts online selection to design this presentation. That way I can be sure no unexpected font replacements will occur mid-project and it will stay consistent through the final version.
The Google Slide format is very interesting from the designer's point of view. Instead of sending emails with attached Powerpoint files around, in a confusing back and forth, each editor is able to input their own data at any time
