As a business presentation designer, I'm always looking for ways to take my presentations to the next level and create something truly impactful. One of the principles in the PowerPoint Picasso Manifesto is to learn from the best and never stop.
One of the best ways to learn is by studying the work of others in the Presentation Design niche. I'm calling it a niche and not an industry because it is relatively small compared to the thousands of general ad agencies or consultancies.
If you have to create presentations for work or school, consider bookmarking some of these presentation design agency blogs before you start working on your next one. I have all of these blogs bookmarked because I love seeing what other presentation designers are doing.
Here are my favorites ❤️
Duarte is an absolute beast when it comes to presentation design. For example, they created the original presentation for former Vice President Al Gore and his documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. Think about that for a moment. Incredible.
Their blog is a wealth of information on creating presentations that will leave a lasting impression on your audience. The Duarte Blog will have something for you, from design and storytelling to delivery and strategy.
How could I not mention BrightCarbon, the creator of one of my favorite PowerPoint Add-ins? BrightCarbon is a presentation design agency specializing in creating interactive and engaging presentations using PowerPoint, Prezi, and Google Slides. Whatever their client needs, they will make it work.

This is a blog I stumbled over five years ago and forever changed how I think about presentation and business. Michael Smith is the founder and comes from a business background in consulting and finance. WhYou'llind on his blog how to create consulting-style presentations more than on-stage keynote presentations.
This isn't a presentation design agency; it's a presentation training course. However, the blog is so good that I had to add it to the list for you!
Learn the best practices from these blogs, and you can increase your productivity in PowerPoint and presentation design more generally.
I hope this list has been helpful, and I wish you all the best in your presentation design journey! Is there any other blog that should be included in this list? Let me know!
