The smart way to get professional presentation design done quickly.
Hello. We’re Design Cloud, a UK based graphic design subscription service.
We provide high-quality presentation design for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Our simple, stress-free service allows you to work with an experienced graphic designer every day of the week for a low, flat-rate monthly fee with no long term contract.
All of our designers are UK-based and once you’re set up on a plan, you’ll be assigned a dedicated designer who will work with you just like an in-house team member.
What’s included in the Design Cloud presentation design service?
Looking for presentation experts to help you level-up your pitch deck design? Look no further, Design Cloud unlimited graphic design subscription plans give you daily access to work with powerpoint designers that can bring your ideas to life. Our in-house team are professional graphic designers with years of experience, meaning they can help you with much more than just powerpoint designs. Whilst we do provide an affordable presentation solution, we aren’t just a presentation design company. Our unlimited graphic design plans include a large design scope, including everything from ad designs, product mock-ups and even full front-end web design. All you’ll need to do is provide us with your brand guidelines and a detailed design brief, which you can submit through our easy-to-use platform, and your dedicated designer will get to work.
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.
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.
Why improve your presentation design?
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?
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.
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.
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…
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
