Proposal + Presentation Design

Firms invest a tremendous amount of time and resources to create opportunities to make a pitch or present a proposal to a prospective client. Don’t sell yourself short with presentation and proposal materials lacking in design, ease of use, and persuasive storytelling.

We help professional services firms create compelling and creatively designed PowerPoint presentations and Word proposals for their most important pitches, speeches, and potential new business engagements. We design materials that make arguments, tell stories, influence audiences, inspire action, and achieve tangible results.

 

Proposal + Presentation Template Systems

Proposals

You’ve been asked to present a proposal. This is your chance to make a great impression, reinforce your value, and differentiate from the competition. Too often, however, firms cobble together elements from prior proposals, resulting in an unpolished, inconsistent and unpersuasive package—and a big missed opportunity. We help our clients create branded proposal template systems in Microsoft Word that allow firms to put their best foot forward with every proposal. Your new proposal will reinforce your brand through great design and visual storytelling in a flexible and easy to use Microsoft Word template. Pitch your strategy, sell your solutions, and win the support of your client with better proposal materials.

Presentations

Does your firm have a single branded PowerPoint template system that all professional use as a starting point when preparing for a presentation? If not, we have the solution. Make it easy for every professional in your firm to make a great impression with a new PowerPoint template system that projects a consistent brand identity. Our PowerPoint systems include well-designed and easily adaptable slide templates for your most commonly used information, including professional bios, practice group descriptions, “about the firm” narratives, and more. We give you the flexibility you need to craft a compelling presentation while maintaining consistency. Help your team convey their best ideas without going off-brand by giving them the templated tools they can use for every presentation type.


Training

One of the primary reasons that most firms’ proposals and presentations lack design style and consistency is a widely-held assumption that great design is not possible within Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. Having designed hundreds of stunning proposals and presentations using Microsoft software, we can tell you from experience that great design is possible—but it requires a thorough understanding of the tools and capabilities with the programs. We offer our clients training so that internal marketing departments can become experts on the use and adaptation of the proposal and presentation template systems we create for them. That way they have the skills and knowledge necessary to manage the process internally as tools are turned over to professionals, and ensure that all proposals and presentations maintain a consistent look.

Proposals + Presentations for Meetings

Visual Storytelling Graphics

Professional services providers deal in complexity. Their competitive advantage lies in making the complex simple. We help firms translate complex information into easy-to-understand visual storytelling graphics that enhance proposals and presentations. Rather than designing an entire proposal or presentation, we’re often called upon to assist firms in creating interesting and understandable graphics to convey an idea that would otherwise require several bullet-point filled slides to get across. From infographics to icon design, we help firms tell better stories in a visual language that their audience can comprehend.

Presentations for Key Speeches and Meetings

When it comes to important keynote speeches or critical meetings, your firm and its professionals can’t afford not to be at their best. While the substance conveyed in such settings is of utmost importance, subpar presentation materials can detract from the experience. We help professionals step on stage with confidence knowing they have visually striking presentation materials to back them up. After getting up to speed on the key points the presenter wants to get across, we distill the information into a persuasive slide presentation that will drive the message home and position the presenter as a thought leader in the process.

Bullet-point-laden, text heavy proposals and presentations fail to connect with audiences. What does?: Impactful imagery and captivating visuals that serve as backdrops to the story you’re telling, as you’re commanding attention, making the case, and engaging on a personal level with prospective clients. Our proposals and presentations incorporate interesting and persuasive visual storytelling graphics and design treatments that grab attention and make complex information easy to understand.

With multiple offices and hundreds of professionals, most firms struggle to maintain a consistent brand identify across their proposal and presentation materials. Instead of working from a single template, professionals often grab whatever prior version is easily available as a starting point. We create flexible but standardized proposal and presentation template systems that help maintain consistency across a firm. Don’t sacrifice your firm’s brand with one-off proposals and presentations that don’t put your best foot forward in critical moments.
