The key to great slide design is to allow presentation creators to focus on the things that matter – content, subtext, examples, new ideas and the all-important call for action rather than on the mechanical details of designing the slides.

Does PowerPoint really help us deliver our messages more effectively? SlideCrafters was created to ensure the answer is yes. “Our mission is to provide presenters with the tools to quickly create professional quality PowerPoint slide decks." says former business consultant, Jason Abraham, founder of SlideCrafters. Edward Tufte, a pioneer in data visualization, famously stated, "Good design is a lot like clear thinking made visual."
Abraham agrees. "PowerPoint is a powerful medium if used correctly,” he explains. “The trick is to create visual content that complements your story." SlideCrafters new Starter Pack contains over 275 editable PowerPoint diagrams that can be pulled into any PowerPoint presentation. The diagrams are easy to adapt to any formatting preference and provide a choice of ready frameworks for whatever information being presented. The diagrams are organized into 9 reference categories: Text Blocks, Table Blocks, Timelines and Planning, Editable Charts, Relationship, Trees, Shapes, Evaluations and Editable Maps.
Clifford Nass, Stanford professor in Communication explained, ""What PowerPoint does is very efficiently deliver content. What (listeners) gain is a lot more information-not just facts but rules, ways of thinking, examples." The key to great slide design is to allow presentation creators to focus on the things that matter – content, subtext, examples, new ideas and the all-important call for action rather than on the mechanical details of designing the slides. With the Starter Pack, PowerPoint designers can pull from a library of PowerPoint slide designs from basic templates to complex business designs. By keeping the Starter Pack diagrams clean, SlideCrafters ensures that the templates themselves don’t overpower the presentation’s message, but rather complement and elevate it.
PowerPoint has rapidly become one of the indispensible tools of modern business. Anything that enhances, speeds up or simplifies the often time-consuming task of putting together a professional-looking PowerPoint, is a welcome addition to a busy executive, manager or team leader’s toolkit.
SlideCrafters was created with a mission to provide presenters with tools to quickly create professional quality slide decks.

SlideCrafters sees the need to share the same tools and enablers to help every presenter create compelling stories backed by visual content.
