Find hope in the face of trials


I first started by looking for one of my favorite talks on hope. I had a good idea of the small clips that I could make to express the message. I first made a list while I listened to the talk and wrote down what pictures I could look for to portray the message. I then put the words and images on paper to have a vision of what it will look like. I wanted a repeating pattern that helped the audience focus on the message and not become distracted by any other elements. I then found the images on google and posted them on the powerpoint. I made sure the key words stood out by finding a color in the image that would correlate with it.


Critique Report

I posted my slide on Wednesday. I got a critique from Kristine who said my slide was very clear, but that the color in the font changed throughout the slide. It may be better to keep the color of each keyword the same. I agreed with her, but felt the color of the keyword would draw the eye of the reader to the image in which they could interpret more from the message.
