LET'S GO! READY TO DIVE IN? What can you do with Prezi? This Prezi showcases different techniques to design and to structure content on an infinite canvas.

But showing off the technology alone gets us nowhere. When you design a Prezi you have the responsibility to use these techniques meaningfully.

Start by deciding, if your Prezi is
meant to be explored, or if it is
to be presented. Prezi is an interface If your Prezi is meant to work as a standalone piece, you will need to educate your audience about how to navigate its content. That includes people who have never heard of Prezi before. The more elaborate your information architecture, the more specific your help must be. Create a guide through the web of information you are weaving The infinite canvas is a powerful
tool. Prezi allows you to add an
element of interactivity to it, and
embed different media to boot. From
a monosequential narrative to exploring freely; given the right input you can customize the user experience to an impressive degree. to make it much more usable. Please head over to my lab to download the Prezi animations for free. You may also find some other notable experiments for inspiration there. Go to my contact page to get in touch, if you would like to work with me. And finally, to stay up to date on communication links, tutorials and design theory you should follow me on twitter here. lab contact twitter (link opens in a new window) (link opens in a new window) (link opens in a new window) You can create impressive visualizations with Prezi. But let's not beat around the bush: To create a truly impressive experience you must prepare art work outside of Prezi. Preferably in vector graphic format (PDF or flash) so that it does not become pixelated in zooming.

All art work for this Prezi has been created with Inkscape and converted to flash via swftools. You can even create animations that way. Two techniques that enable you to make Prezi a bit more interactive are grouping and layering. The information architecture here is very basic, but arranging content centrally conforming to point perspective allows for a very semantic use of the z-axis, even in complex projects. PDF scales, but does not have a transparent background. Inkscape is a free vector graphics program that exports to PDF. If you want to convert to flash, you need to limit your use of gradients and transparency effects. swftools is a free software suite to convert various file types to the swf format. I used pdf2swf to convert PDF files from Inkscape and inserted them as images in Prezi.
