Best-selling author and popular speaker Garr Reynolds is back in this newly revised edition of his classic, best-selling book, Presentation Zen Design, in which he showed students how to use time-honored design principles and simple techniques for creating successful presentations. This new edition includes fresh new examples throughout and a whole new chapter on presenting using video and multimedia.

Presenters often lack the fundamentals of graphic design but after reading this book they will learn how to look at their slides differently and with design in mind. Throughout Presentation Zen Design, students will get the same one-on-one, practical advice from Garr Reynolds that made his first book wildly popular. Filled with practical information and lots of examples, with sections on type, color, images, video, layout and presenting data, Presentation Zen Design provides a comprehensive toolkit for creating compelling presentations.

In this new edition, Garr gives his students new, fresh examples to draw inspiration from, with a whole new chapter for those who present using video and multimedia in their talks. Not only will they discover all the design elements that go into good presentations, they'll also learn key benefits to using particular designs for various outcomes and will accomplish the goal of making a lasting connection with their audiences.
