Tomorrow’s Fish are Still in the Sea
After recently visiting a restaurant in Exmouth, Devon, I was inspired to produce this template and absurd presentation demo below. I hope you find it useful, and possibly amusing! The restaurant in question is called ‘Rockfish‘, and they have what I thought to be the biggest time-and-space-bending slogan since ‘Schrodinger’s Cat’:
“Tomorrow’s fish are still in the sea.”
The more I thought about the apparently simple phrase about freshness, the more it amused me, as I explain in the first 6 minutes of the video. Yes, I’m sad enough to create an entire presentation on the matter! Even if you don’t like the preposterous subject of the presentation, you might find the explanations from around minute six of the video helpful, where I provide some how-to PowerPoint tips on creating your own sleek and simple templates. For example:
- How to insert and format shapes in PowerPoint
- How to create transitions between your slides
- How to use subtle yet professional animations for your content
- How to format the slide background design, including using a gradient colour scheme
- How to group shapes together to save time
- Tips on ‘the rule of threes’, accessibility, and how much text to display on a slide
Their tag line is something I clearly thought way too much about! In this video, I first demo the template I created, by sharing my preposterous ponderings about the Rockfish tagline and by giving an informal review (including a terrible pun) as a presentation. I then run through how I created the presentation covering key features used, such as the slide transitions, animations, shapes, slide background design and formatting.
Time and space are modes by which we think, not conditions in which we live.Albert Einstein
