Story of sister missionary.

Savior’s Atonement allows continual remission of sins.

PROCESS: I began my process by finding the talk to base my presentation on. This took some time as I had two or three in mind. I chose Elder Klebingat’s address entitled “Approaching the Throne of God”, delivered in the October 2014 General Conference for several reasons.  When I first listened to this talk last year it had a profound influence on me. Also the organization of this talk was simple and could easily be made into a PowerPoint presentation. I found high quality images that correlated with each section and sketched out my layout. I had the idea of using a paint stroke as my graphic element above full spread images. I originally thought about making all the strokes red to give symbolism to the atonement of Christ, which is a central theme of this talk, however I decided instead to go with the primary colors as my scheme to add a cheerier mood to my presentation. I hoped that doing so would attract viewers of all ages. After sketching and planning my presentation I then proceeded to design it in Microsoft PowerPoint.

CRITIQUE REPORT: After I had completed a good draft of my presentation I posted it to Facebook for feedback from my classmates and to Sister Peterson for her critique. I was able to receive a response from Carrie Clark, Lauren Burke, and Linda Morrison. These three ladies said that my presentation was working well and the only thing they noticed was that the color strokes on the first and second slides were the same color and that it might be wise to change that up. I agreed and made that correction. In Sister Peterson’s critique she noticed some areas where their was some tension with the proximity of elements and that my title page image seemed a little pixelated. I double-checked the dimensions of my title image which actually was over 2400 on the long side, however I decided it best to change it to an image that appeared clearer. I found that my replacement image was even more effective at conveying the message of Elder Klebingat’s address.

  1. Your slides look awesome, they look like something out of a Mormon Message! I love it. I really like the banner that you used, can you get that in Powerpoint? Would you mind sharing with me how you did? I also really like the bright colored pictures, and the bright colored banner. The colors went together very nicely. Overall, great job. I love it!

  2. I love how this turned out Kaylee! I saw your initial post on Facebook and loved where it was headed but really love the first image that you switched up. The topics throughout your presentation are so clear. I am glad you went with a full page image and kept the focus on your imagery which each image is really well chosen and powerful.

    There are some great presentations in our class this week. One of the other powerful one’s I’ve seen today is Kyle’s using black and white imagery. You should check it out:
