1 Extreme Presentation ™ Example Page Layouts Rev. 2.0 Andrew V. Abela, Ph.D.

2 1 Applying the Squint Test In the Extreme Presentation workshop we discuss the importance of using what graphic designers call the “squint test” when laying out a page. To pass the squint test, the layout of the page must tell you something about the page, even if you’re squinting so that you cannot read any of the text. The goal is that the layout of the page should reinforce the main message of the page. If the message is that there are two alternatives, for example, then you should lay the page out with one alternative on each side. To help you with this, we have created this PowerPoint™ document, which contains 36 examples of page layouts that pass the squint test. Of course, these are just a few ideas among thousands of possible layouts. The simplest way to use this is to save a copy of this file (with the name of your new presentation). Then go to the Slide Sorter view and move all the layouts that you want to use towards the front of the presentation, and delete the rest. Then put the remaining layouts in the order you want them (you can use CTRL-D to duplicate any layouts where you need more than one copy).

3 Introduction to version In Office 2007, Microsoft introduced its SmartArt feature. According to Microsoft, “A SmartArt graphic provides a visual representation of information so that you can more effectively communicate your message. Each graphic represents a different concept or idea, such as a process flow, an organization hierarchy, a relationship, and so on.” Several of the original Extreme Presentation layouts are included in the current set of SmartArt designs. This version (2.0) of the layouts now includes those designs or adaptations of them. We are working with Microsoft on future developments of the SmartArt feature, and as new designs are released we will incorporate them in new versions of the Extreme Presentation layouts. See for the latest updates.www.ExtremePresentation.com
