I found a talk I really liked by Dieter F. Uchtdorf and after reading it thought I would be able to find enough quality images to go along with it. My audience is to any adult or teenager who is wanted to simplify and better their hectic life in order to find more peace. I then sketch a few different layouts until I found one that would go with the images I wanted. I wrote up a speakers outline and picked out the main points to display on the slides. I came up with a color scheme and added the the pictures and typography to my slides.



I posted my project on I-learn for Bro. Stucki to critique as well as on Facebook where I received feedback from two classmates. Bro. Stucki noted that I need a third color to complete my color scheme. I added the red line to create a split complementary color scheme. He also noted that I should make the margins on the right side all the same and I adjusted them. It was suggested by a classmate that I should try and make the pictures all the same size so the margins on the left where the same as well but I found that I couldn’t make them the same size and keep the intent of the image that same so I kept the margins a little different on the left.

  1. I loved this talk also by President Uchtdorf. I didn’t not see your original version of your presentation, but I do like the way you made all the pictures have the same margin on the right side. That looks great. Your color scheme is perfect and I like the red line under all of the text boxes. I also like the way you bolded the last word of your text in every slide. Great presentation.
