Creating Hand Drawn Flowcharts

Slide Content

The slide titled "Creating Hand Drawn Flowcharts" provides a clear guide on how to properly design hand-drawn style flowcharts in a presentation. The 'Do' section indicates to combine shapes to create the desired arrow and then group them together. In the 'Don’t' part, it suggests avoiding direct connector arrows, instead recommending hand-drawn arrows indicated with a letter C. As practical advice, to make elements connect in a scribble style, you should use hand-drawn arrows, and to group elements, you should select two or more objects, right-click, and then select "Group."

Graphical Look

  • The title "Creating Hand Drawn Flowcharts" is prominently displayed at the top of the slide in bold, large font.
  • Two separate columns, labeled "Do" and "Don't," feature contrasting check and cross symbols in green and red colors, setting positive and negative examples.
  • Two grey oval shapes each labeled "Start / End" are followed by green rectangular shapes labeled "Process step," connected with a hand-drawn arrow style in one example and a straight arrow in another.
  • Hand-drawn arrows, both straight and curved, are displayed in orange, indicating the correct style to use.
  • Instructional text boxes provide guidance on combining shapes and grouping them, as well as how to connect elements.

The slide uses shades of green, grey, orange, and scribbled textures to give a hand-drawn aesthetic, maintaining a professional yet creative look. The visual elements are well-organized and clearly demonstrate the difference between the hand-drawn flowchart elements and standard connector arrows.

Use Cases

  • To instruct team members on how to create visually engaging and informal presentations using hand-drawn graphic elements.
  • In a workshop about creative visual communication, illustrating the importance of visually distinctive elements in presentations.
  • During an instructional session on advanced PowerPoint techniques, showing how to customize default shapes for a unique visual style.
  • As part of a branding or design meeting, to encourage a shift towards more personalized and creative visual aids in company presentations.
