THE ART OF PREZI
Your ambassadors,
Hello,
Hanny Yeung
Marco Felicioni
Mohamed Yousry
We believe great prezis should be everywhere, so together we made this to
help you create amazing prezis.
SKILL #1
METAPHORS
You will learn:
- what makes a prezi good or bad
- the principles and resources of prezi design
- presentation tips that will help you shine on stage
Enjoy!
We won't tell you exactly where they are in this prezi, but you should be able to find them everywhere.
They give meanings to images. They help audiences understand the topic.
HOWTO
SKILL #2
MUSIC
It can help set the mood for the prezi.
Instrumentals work best
Reduce the volume of the file
so you don't shock headphone users
or cause embarrassment for speaker users

Be careful of what you choose! Sometimes, it can be
distracting
.
SCREEN RATIO
#3
16:9
4:3
ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS TO SET
before you begin a prezi
HOWTO
4:3
16:9
Many projectors are
Newer ones are
If you have the chance,
visit the venue and check how it looks like.
Not only can you check the screen ratio,
you can also plan interactive activities, seating,
and most importantly,
make it your comfort zone.
It is also fine to leave it "off".
But be careful when placing
contents, because some
surprises may be spoiled by
the screen!
...and laptops too
EXAMPLES
Prezi planned in...
16:9
4:3
But the actual screen is...
4:3
16:9
Stuff that shouldn't be there
But if you've set
these when you
planned it
and the screens don't match, black borders will come and help you
Of course, it's better if they match!
A VISIT
PLAN
Make eye-contact
Use
gestures
Look for feedback from your audience
Raise your voice
create an emotional connection between ideas
Don't read from the screen

DESIGNER'S MEETING
You are now
ready for the
world out there, so...
...GO SHARE YOUR IDEAS, MAKE IT YOUR OWN!
Makes your audience unfocused
There are many non-linear templates
Use the ones that suit your ideas!
You might like to zoom into an image to show
your audience something and
when you zoom...
BEFORE PRESENTING
WHILE PRESENTING...
BUT MOST OF ALL...
Prezi Design
SOURCES
BITMAP
VECTOR IMAGES
into
one last thing...
AVOID
Copying & pasting an entire chart into a prezi

Your audience doesn't have time and isn't interested in figuring out what to focus on
Instead, use Prezi's simple shapes
to create a simple chart
And you can even
zoom into the figures
for elaboration

Hi!
The view is
nice up here
Resize / draw frame
according to ratio
(4:3 or 16:9)
Select multiple
objects
ALSO
Main point
zoom into a sub point
and then move on to another
and clean visuals
USE MINIMAL TEXT
to make your audience more focused
Don't just use linear format
to express your ideas
EVEN IF YOU
START FROM BLANK...
Success
Failure
you can arrange
simple frames
to convey meanings
...it pixelates
Don't zoom into low resolution images
OR VECTOR GRAPHICS
USE HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGES
WHAT ARE
VECTOR GRAPHICS?
They are images based on mathematical expressions, not pixels. So they are scalable infinitely without loss of quality, which are
More:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vector_graphics
perfect for prezis!
Symbols & shapes provided in the Prezi editor are vectors
Almost all of the graphics used in this prezi are vectors
Look!
It never pixelates
(I know I do...)
Sometimes you get excited about Prezi and do this
which doesn't help your audience understand your topics
DON'T SCATTER FRAMES ALL AROUND THE CANVAS
ADD A LOGICAL ARRANGEMENT
so it is meaningful & makes sense
Sub points
Never, ever, ever make wide angle spins, please.
The feature is not designed for that.
Now we have to go back out, so one more spin, hopefully the last in your lifetime. Apologies!
Some people hate Prezi because it makes them feel seasick
the person who doesn't know how to use it correctly
minimize THE ANGLES OF ROTATION
(smaller than 90 degrees)
AND PREFERABLY USE IT TO CONVEY A MEANING
STEADY
PROGRESS
DOWNWARD
SLIDE
UPHILL
CHALLENGE
ZOOM OUT
ZOOM IN 1
ZOOM IN 2
Avoid zooming in and out constantly
OVERVIEW
show smaller details that are not
clearly visible without zooming
Important items bigger
Less important
ones smaller
Subtle, natural movements in a hierarchy of objects

It's great for adding DEPTH
to your presentation
You can of course, also draw inspiration from the design of this prezi itself.
BY THE WAY... How many birds can you find in this prezi?
Yes! Those
never-pixelating
vectors!
