After logging into the online portal, you can start by submitting a request for your presentation design. Once this has been reviewed by one of our designers, who will get back in touch if they have any questions, we will begin the creation of an impressive presentation design that will be sure to hit it out of the park!

As an alternative to the traditional design agency in Manchester with our unique way of delivering high-quality graphics, we will use our eye for detail to prepare each slide with impressive graphics and presentation design, making sure to include all your required talking points.

We will then produce the presentation in your chosen format, whether PowerPoint or PDF, with high-quality content and showstopping presentation design! We’ll then aim to deliver it within 24 hours of receiving your brief. After that, all that is left to do is for you to excel at your presentation!

What makes impressive presentation design?

What makes impressive presentation design?

You’ve got the information you want to convey to your audience, and now you just need a way to present it that’s going to grab their attention and make your message memorable. Let’s face it, presenters are faced with numerous challenges when it comes to mastering their presentation skills. They need to create an engaging presentation that’s going to increase their audience’s level of understanding about the topic, and they need to use visuals that will keep the dreaded issue of disengaged audiences at bay. When presented and designed correctly, presentations are an incredibly useful tool and provide an opportunity for sharing insights and strategies, storytelling, selling, education and so much more. Luckily for you, you can leave the design element to us.

It’s not always easy for people to create a visually memorable presentation, especially if you lack design experience and need to create a presentation from scratch. The days of dated clipart style icons and animations, dodgy templates, tacky fonts, and questionable backgrounds are gone! Everyone wants to present to an engaged audience, and that’s exactly what Design Cloud can help you with. We combine effective design elements to create gripping presentations and positive experiences for both the presenter and the audience.

Whether you’re presenting an investor pitch deck, pitching a new business idea or product, or running a course for your company colleagues, we can help with our presentation design services. From the ideal interview presentation, to marketing presentations and sales presentations, there isn’t much we can’t do. With presentation slides that effectively communicate your messages and show off your content, we can help you to get maximum audience engagement with visual elements that are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. This combination of impressive graphic elements allows you to effectively convey your key messages, which will ensure you have a successful presentation in which every single slide leaves your audience wanting to know more.

If you need any inspiration or want to check out our previous work, take a look at some of the graphics we’ve created for clients before. All we ask is that you come to us with a clear brief of your design vision and what the key features of your presentation need to be. Then we’ll take care of the rest with our abundance of creative presentation ideas and themes. Our presentation styles can be tailored exactly to your brand identity, regardless of industry and the purpose of the presentations. Forget using a generic template – our service will truly convey your brand identity with high-quality content on each slide.

How does using the presentation design service work?

How does using the presentation design service work?

Like all good things here at Design Cloud, getting yourself an effective presentation starts by submitting a request by logging into our online portal. The portal is super simple and easy to use, but you can also get in touch by email, if you’d prefer. A designer will then take a look at your request, and will get in touch if they need to ask any questions about your brief. Once your request has been accepted, we’ll get to work on creating some impressive presentation graphics that are going to seriously impress your audience. When we’re done, we’ll send the presentation over to you in whichever format is best for you, whether that’s PowerPoint, PDF or an alternative. If you’d like us to make any changes (we’re always happy to do so), then simply submit another request and we’ll revise the presentation.

The presentation design service is available as part of our monthly packages, starting from £549 a month. Our packages vary depending on the services you’d like to receive, but all advertised prices are a fixed flat fee. There’ll be no unexpected extra costs or pesky additional charges – what you see is exactly what you’ll pay. We’re more affordable than hiring an in-house team, but still provide all of the same perks. This approach makes us one of the best graphics resources for marketing agencies, small businesses and sales teams alike.

What Our Customers Say

Customer experience is our number one priority. Here's what some of our clients have to say about us

Why is a presentation design service important?

Why is a presentation design service important?

Although some people might think that the content of a presentation is the most important thing, a well-designed aesthetic can have several benefits, including an impact on the effectiveness, memorability, and overall narrative of your presentation

When it comes down to it, there must be a purpose behind your presentation. If you are making a sales pitch or delivering some training, it is crucial that your message is delivered quickly and efficiently, in a way that is easily digestible. A good presentation design will combine effective graphics with a well-considered layout, allowing your audience to take in all of the key information.

This will also make you memorable, as it shows that you have the expertise to produce a professional presentation design, and care enough about your audience to make the information accessible to all. It will also assist you, the speaker, to deliver your presentation in a measured and calm manner.

What are the benefits of presentation design by a professional graphic design agency?

Over the years, the level of production that goes into presentation design has continued to reach new heights. Gone are the days of using free templates, clip art, and basic fonts. Instead, presentations are much more complex to produce and get right.

If you’re unsure what makes for an ideal presentation, or you have a clear vision of what you want but lack the skills to execute it, don’t let this stop you from delivering a standout presentation. Our team of designers at Design Cloud – the perfect substitute to the traditional graphic design agency in Manchester – are on hand to assist with your presentation design.

The style and content of our presentation design can be tailored into a truly bespoke solution for you or your company. Plus, you benefit from unlimited graphics at a flat rate, and unlimited revisions to make sure that your design is nothing short of perfect!


Can my presentation be as long as I want?

Of course! When you submit a request, you can provide details about the length of your presentation. However, if you have numerous or complex requirements, please allow extra time for our team to complete the work. You can get in touch with them at any point to find out where they’re up to.


Can you supply images for my presentation?

Here at Design Cloud, we have access to a whole range of stock imagery which means you don’t have to worry about licenses or finding images for your presentation, saving you plenty of time to focus your effort on other areas of your business. However, we don’t offer illustrations as a part of the service, and only images will be used in your visual presentation.


When will my presentation be sent over to me?

We always aim for 24 hour turnaround times on simple requests. If your request involves complex or multiple requirements though, it may take a little longer. Please keep this in mind and allow plenty of time to ensure you receive your presentation in advance of when you need it for. With every brief, we aim to have these sent back to you as soon as possible. If you’d like to find out about the progress that has been made with your request, you can contact your designer using our portal.


Can I chat with my assigned designer during the process?

At Design Cloud, we know that communication is key. WIthout communication, you wouldn’t have your desired designs! You can use our handy portal at any time to talk to your assigned designer during the process. You can chat to them about your brief, see the progress they’re making with your presentation, and you can pass on my feedback and request edits once it has been completed.


Where are your designers hired from?

We directly employ our team and never outsource our work. All members of the team have plenty of experience and a strong background in design – we only hire the best in the business. All designers are based in the UK, and our HQ is based in Manchester. This means there’s no need to worry about timezones or any language barriers. You can rest assured that your assigned designer will understand your brief and will use their expert knowledge to create an impactful presentation.


Why choose Design Cloud?

You know as well as we do, bad presentations are a touchy subject. They create lasting memories, but you never want to be the cause of that memory. You want your presentation to be an entirely positive experience, and rightly so. If you’re wanting to reap the benefits of a compelling presentation, Design Cloud are the solution. We understand the perfect presentation style for conferences, class presentations, the office and everything in between, so you can feel confident that we’ll create razor-sharp presentation designs for whatever you need.

What are the different types of presentation?

What are the different types of presentation?

Before we even think about design elements, we should probably take a moment to consider all the different presentation types there are – and which one will best suit your business and your target audience. From pitch decks to keynote presentations, business communications to a visual narrative, there are plenty of opportunities to make a memorable and engaging presentation. 

In the world of business, presentations generally aim to fulfil one of a handful of goals. Whether you’re pointing to an investor pitch deck in a busy boardroom or trying to tell a story using visual elements as part of a memorable social media campaign, your presentation will likely fit within the following six examples…


Teaching a skill

If you’re showcasing complex ideas with the intention to teach your audience, your presentation deck will likely be considered an educational resource. This format teaches people how to use or do something, so it should be clear, concise, and easy to follow!


Providing information

It might seem like it’s one of the most basic elements of a presentation, but providing information (in a compelling way!) is one of the main cornerstones in making yours a success. Whether you’re sharing your own professional experience as a pitch or going into a deep dive on a particular topic, such as business plans, you’ll want to make maximum impact with your content and graphic design. 


Selling a service or product

A briefing presentation might introduce a new business idea, recap a product or service to the marketing department, or explain future business decisions to sales teams. Reports and additional materials that help with showcasing your products might be helpful here.


Reporting progress

If you need to give actionable feedback or let your coworkers know how a certain sector or new system is doing, a presentation that includes a ‘takeaway per slide’ is a helpful rule of thumb. That way, any progress or points you really want to shout about in your meeting will stick in the minds of your audience through simplicity. This may seem like a given, but it can often get lost in favour of busy visual design and overloaded text.



A compelling presentation that picks apart a problem and clearly shows possible fixes can be found in a number of different settings, from product discussions, panels, corporate presentations and more. Having a strong, consistent design alongside well-written content will make sure your solutions really shine.


Making a decision

From serious pitches detailing your latest business ideas to presenting your picks for the next Christmas Do, outlining your pros, cons and understanding your target audience will make your presentation a real winner. Including visual variables, such as data and statistics, is key to any successful pitch deck design and will help yours stand out from the competition.

With any presentation, it helps to know your objectives and who you’re pitching to. If your purpose is to inform or update, you will most likely use one of the first four types of presentations. On the other hand, if you’re on a mission to persuade someone and talk them around to your ideas, the final two presentation types will likely be better suited.

Of course, not every single presentation has to mould itself into one of these traditional formats! You can also find creative presentation ideas in the form of an interview, status report, program, pitch, speech, or demonstration.

The psychology behind presentations and why your design matters

The psychology behind presentations and why your design matters

Have you ever watched – or even worse, given – a disastrous presentation? What were the things that switched people off or simply didn’t work? The primary goal of your presentation slides is to capture the attention of your target audience, get them to easily understand the data and information being shown, and retain any major takeaway or purpose. Thanks to a great deal of research, making sure your presentations are as effective as possible has never been easier – all you have to do now is write them, and our experienced presentation designers can handle the rest.

Learning more about the visual-auditory-kinesthetic (VAK) model is an easy way to make sure every person in your audience is being catered for, even if they all have different ‘learning styles.’ The VAK theory explains that a person’s learning style can be either visual, auditory or kinesthetic, so your visual presentation and oral descriptions should cater to them all.

Auditory learners retain information best through words and sounds. Varying your tone of voice, pitch, pace and volume are tips usually harnessed by professional orators to avoid any lulls and capitalise on important ideas. In addition, well-placed silences can work wonders by adding suspense, tension or even stoke curiosity, as well as giving you a chance to catch a well-deserved breath.

Visual learners rely on good graphics for information to stick, which our experienced presentation designers excel at. These audiences respond best to graphs, mind maps, visual charts, pictures, and any other illustrations to punctuate any long speeches. Using your own gestures and other visual cues while talking can also keep the audience rapt.

Kinesthetic learners are trickier customers when we talk about more traditional forms of presenting. These people learn new concepts most effectively through experience – moving, doing, touching, sharing –  so inviting them to share their opinions or including various activities into the presentation will help keep kinesthetic audiences focused and make for a memorable presentation.

How long does it take to get set up?

Once you’ve completed sign-up, you’ll receive your account log-in details and you’ll be able to start submitting design requests instantly through the app or via email. It typically it takes around 24hrs for us to get you set up with your designer and to get them working on your requests.

What does unlimited graphic design actually mean?

As a Design Cloud subscriber, there is no limitation to the number of design requests you can submit and there is no limitation on the number of revisions you can ask for either. You will not be charged a penny extra for submitting a large number of requests or making a large number of revisions.

One thing to keep in mind – Each round of revisions is treated as a new design request and this can affect the turnaround time of other design requests you have in your queue.

We’re Only Human….

Design Cloud designers are real humans. Your designer will work through the design requests in your queue, one task at a time. Once the request at the top of your queue is complete, they will move onto the next one.

Need more design work faster?

No problem at all. It’s easy to scale your output by adding another designer to your team which will allow you to double your daily graphic design output. This can be easily done from your account dashboard or by contacting our sales team.

I have more than one business, can I use one account?

Yes you can. All of our subscription plans come with unlimited brands. This means that you can use one subscription to submit design work for multiple businesses that you may own.

Just keep in mind that your designer will only work on one active request at a time from your queue.

Do you offer a trial?

Yes we do. We offer a 14 day risk-free trial on all of our services. If you don’t like the design work we create for you in the first 14 days, we’ll keep it and you can get a full refund, no questions asked. You can read more about how the trial works on our pricing page.

What are the turnaround times?

As a rough average, Design Cloud standard users will get most design requests delivered back to them the following business day.

Turnaround times on design requests will vary and generally depend on three factors:

1. How long you and your designer have been working together.

If you’ve been working with your designer for some time, you’ll have a great workflow in place, your designer will fully understand your brand, visual identity and your preferred style. This will speed up turnaround time significantly.

If you are new to Design Cloud and you’re submitting your first task with your new designer, you’ll more than likely receive your first design back in around 1-2 business days.

2. How complex the design request is.

For example, a simple social media graphic with simple text overlayed can be very quick to turnaround, whereas something like a multi-page powerpoint presentation or detailed corporate brochure will have a lot of layers that make up the design and will take significantly longer to produce.

Our customer experience team review all requests the moment they come through to assess complexity. If there’s a complex request we think will take longer than one business day to get back to you, we’ll reach out and let you know.

3. How many requests you have in your design queue.

Your designer will work on one request at a time. If you approve the request at the top of your queue when your designer sends it back to you, we’ll jump straight onto the next one. If you delay getting back to us about revisions and sign off, this will delay the rest of your design requests being worked on.

DesignCloud PRO

One of the perks of being a Design Cloud PRO user is that you’ll get real-time communication with your designer via Slack and faster turnaround times, including same-day design delivery.

Even though the PRO plan turnaround time is quicker (especially for revisions), the number of design requests you’ll get delivered each day will still differ depending on the complexity of each request sent, how long you’ve been working with your designer and what else you have at the top of your design queue.

Are you outsourcing work to freelance sites or overseas?

Absolutely not. We don’t outsource work overseas and we don’t use freelance sites or market places. All of our designers are in-house at our office in central Manchester. The digital capital of the north.

Who owns the creative work?

You own all of the design work that we create for you. Everything we do is made specifically for you and your brand. The moment we deliver the final design files to you, you have 100% ownership. We also provide you with the Adobe layered files we used to create your work in too ie: Photoshop PSD, Illustrator AI, InDesign INDD as well as in .jpg, .pdf, or .png.

Important information around stock images.

If we need to use stock images in your work, there are some important ownership/license restrictions that you need to be aware of. You can read about these here in our terms of service.

What can you design for me?

We can design almost anything for you so long as you can explain or show us what it is you want to create. Our design scope is broad, but firmly set in graphic design (at the moment)  if you’re looking for animated 3D video, CAD design, SEO, copywriting or a sandwich. We’re not going to be able to help you…

However, we work with multiple award-winning agencies across all areas of digital and we would be to introduce you.

We can also recommend some amazing sandwich shops in Manchester too. (We love sandwiches)

Here’s our official design scope. If there’s something we’ve not mentioned on the list, get in touch and we’ll let you know if it can be done.

Can you design my logo?

If you have a clear brief or idea for your logo design including specific fonts, colours or look, sure – We can bring your idea to life and design your logo as you described it.

We are not a branding agency.

If you don’t know what you want your logo to look like and you need help to develop a brand/logo/name from scratch, then we will happily put you in touch with one of award-winning branding agency partners.

Can you design my website?

Yes we can! You’ll need to be subscribed to a Design Cloud PRO or Enterprise plan to work on web design. We’ll need your website copy already written and ready to go and you’ll need to provide us with a clear page by page brief and send us any licensed photos you want to use too.

Each website page will be designed in three standard screen sizes. Desktop, Mobile, Tablet. Each page you want us to design for your site will need to be submitted as a new request.

Web Development

Web development is not included in any of our subscription plans. We can provide you with a separate price for the development, refer you to one of our web development agency partners or you can use the designs we produce for you and work with your existing developer to build it.

We're an Agency, can we use Design Cloud?

Absolutely. We love working with agencies and would love to talk to you about how we can help you.

We work particularly well with marketing agencies who are currently outsourcing their design work to freelancers, branding agencies who want to free up their lead designers from small design tasks that create a bottleneck and any agency using non-designers to create their graphics for their own social media channels. (There’s a lot of them about)

We’re not here to replace your existing designers, we’re here to offer an affordable, low risk solution to help you design at scale.

I'm a freelancer, can I use Design Cloud?

Yes! We love helping freelancers scale up their design output.

If you have a large project that requires a heavy amount of small graphic design tasks, you can focus on the larger areas of the project and we can help you work through the small stuff and reduce the time you spend designing until the twilight hours trying to meet deadlines.

Since an audience is usually made up of a mix of the above, the safest approach when planning a presentation is to cater to all learning styles while ensuring the overall graphic design will hold their attention.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that images, graphs, and pictures – also known as the Picture Superiority Effect – tend to be remembered more than words and serve as effective visual prompts. Modern presentations are the bread and butter of any good graphic design agency, which can utilise a number of visual methods to convey the tone and feel of your business while creating engaging imagery to complement your content. With our unlimited graphic design services, our team can help craft fantastic sales presentations, pitch decks, and showcase data in new and exciting ways, to keep your audience’s attention from start to finish.

Our dedicated graphic designers have plenty of experience in using their skills to craft an eye-catching, professional slide deck, with a keen understanding of what works for many different types of presentations. Through our graphic design service, our team can put together a seamless presentation in a range of formats. For simple requests, they’ll aim to get your design back to you in as quick as 24 hours, without compromising the quality.

How to nail the copy within your presentation

How to nail the copy within your presentation

As our talents lie in creating amazing graphics to bag a successful presentation, we, unfortunately, can’t write the copy for you. We’re good – but not that good! Penning the contents of a great presentation is a skill that will always come in handy, so we’ve compiled a few handy tips to help you on your way. 

A strong presentation outline is the backbone of your talk, with research showing that your target audience will retain structured information 40% more accurately than general waffling, which is understandable. Making sure you open with a greeting and tell the audience a bit about yourself makes you seem approachable, before wading into your topic with a clear, concise introduction. Handing out any resources or tools, such as flyers, at this point is a good idea, before getting into the main body of your presentation. Your presentation is a journey of sorts, so make sure every point is addressed with supporting evidence and examples and your audience is engaged and onboard. To ensure this, provide a mini-summary before moving on to the next point and give people a chance to make notes or ask any further questions. 

To make sure you don’t veer off track when you’re in the planning process, jot down a list of main points you want to make and keep yourself accountable. This helps refine your presentation, cuts out any unnecessary distractions or tangents, and will outline any clear messages for your audience.

When writing your presentation copy, take the time to do a ‘practice run’ and read it aloud for a mock audience. This makes it easier to catch any unfortunate snags and ensure everything runs ‘alright on the night’ – so double-checking how your words sound off the page and how it flows as a whole is invaluable. This is also a good time to gauge which sections of your written copy will inform any visual aids or graphic design. In this case, make a note as to what data or content needs a bit of ‘oomph’ within your brief and our team will add it into the process – with our portal, you can get in touch with your designer at any time to chat about your presentation and request any additional edits once it’s been completed.

During your test run, make sure you’ve been ticking off your points and make sure each one answers any questions your audience might have. Does your closing summarise your entire presentation clearly without leaving any loose ends? Is it strong enough to cement your authority or knowledge on a particular topic or your faith in a pitch? And, finally, does it lead back round to the points made right at the beginning of your talk? Your audience is listening to you for a reason, so make sure they have everything they came for – plus engaging takeaways and things to think about on the way home!

In essence, the copy of a presentation is all about telling a good story. Even if the quality of your idea is excellent, you’ll struggle to get this across without a compelling narrative and strong personal delivery – even if you have showstopping and engaging visuals. So, finding your own way of presenting and refining your personal style within your copy will help you seem relaxed and authoritative, whether you’re delivering to a packed conference hall or delivering a one on one. Although following a checklist on how to do the best talk might seem like the way to go, the most important thing to remember is that you’re bringing new, or fresh, insight to a point or topic that your audience might never have seen. Falling into the trap of writing a presentation to a strict formula is an easy way to switch people off, so make sure your copy sparks curiosity and interest.
