Leveraging some graphic resources

Let’s be honest – slides and presentations from quality professionals tend to be text heavy and graphic poor. I’m no expert here, but I have settled on a few subscriptions that help me produce fair to middling presentations and graphics.

  • SlideModel, SlideGeeks, SlideTeam – You probably don’t want all three (or one of the other competitors) but have a subscription to just one of these have saved my sanity more times than I can count.
  • NounProject – Oh how I love the icons this organization makes available. I use them everywhere! Presentations, procedures, technical systems. Great price structure, decent licensing. Now with a decent photo library too. Someday I will organize one of their Iconathons for developing a good set of icons around quality principles and tools.
  • Photolibrary – So many free and low priced ones out there. I don’t use photos nearly enough but I keep up a low level shutterstock subscription and use my monthly quota.

My goal this year is to use more graphics in my blog. Well actually my goal is to post more this year, 2020 was kind of a wash.
