It’s easy to find graphic designers who can create slides. That’s really easy. There are hundreds of them.
What’s hard is to find a designer who has expertise in business, and that’s their niche. You know people will say, “why don’t you use our designers?” and I’ll say “because they don’t have the sensitivity and the expertise to understand how to depict complex statistical data analytics, or customer insights on certain information well.” Slidedesignr gets it.
MANAGING DIRECTOR, TOP RESEARCH & STRATEGY COMPANY
Your business communicates insights: results, analysis, recommendations, data.
It’s hard to do that while worrying about how you’re going to design PowerPoint slides at the same time.
What’s more, ever-tightening deadlines make it a challenge to deliver your best work, when you’re trying to create those crucial slides at the last minute.
For you, creating slides has the lowest ROI; it prevents you from investing your most critical resources—your team’s time and energy—on crafting insights, recommendations, and data-driven stories.
Graphic Designers Can Make Slides Pretty…
…but they don’t make slides work. Purely aesthetically-pleasing slides can be great in some situations, but day-to-day, your slides have be both beauty and brains.
Coming up with lots of complex insights and data is already challenging enough, but spending the time to put it on a page in a way that’s instantly, viscerally appealing and easy to understand is an additional full-time job.
You’ve got to make a big impact in 8.5 by 11 inches and, if you’re lucky, about 10 minutes, and frankly, pretty on its own won’t cut it.
Your Insights. But Better.
We want your insights to help the C-suite make decisions—and do it so well that your clients come back to you again and again for more.
That requires a dedication and commitment to making PowerPoint slides that a lot of businesses simply don’t have the resources for.
So how can you make that happen?
You don’t. We do.
You’re the expert—but you have a lot of hats to wear, and not a lot of time. Thankfully, we’re the experts in communicating your expertise to non-experts. 😊
We know how important your PowerPoint slides are—and yours are smarter with us involved in the process. We take your complex and nuanced insights, and make them simple and visual—and actionable.
“We’re looking for a great aesthetic and smart communication of concepts that are typically part of the research discussion. I wanted to make sure it was somebody who was able to not only give aesthetically, but also be able to understand our language; someone who is able to speak multiple languages, so the language of design, but at the same time the language of research. That’s a hard-to-find combination.”

Slidedesignr’s Simple Mission:
Better Deliverables, Done For You.
We communicate your insights visually, beautifully—and strategically.
We take your implicit expertise, and make it explicit, clear, simple, and quick, so your C-level audience can confidently make the decisions they need to make.
We don’t ”make slides pretty”.

Free Yourself to Focus on Insights—And Grow Your Business
We artfully combine Storytelling and Graphic Design to bring your insights to life.

We’ve got a proven process and an expert team that evolves your content into a polished document that communicates even the most complicated data with visceral impact.
From creative custom graphics and diagrams to explain your complex methodologies and concepts, to creating innovative ways of walking your audience through your data, to making sense of complex, nuanced stories, it’s all tailored for your audience, in your style, your voice, with your key insights and major takeaways.
We’ve spent years refining our end-to-end deliverable creation process so you don’t have to. And it’s not just aesthetic; we strive to make each slide a standalone product that effectively communicates your message, and makes your end client feel they are getting a great value for the money with every slide.
With Slidedesignr, creating impactful presentations has never been easier.

ACTUAL CLIENT SKETCH
“This is fun for me—I have never worked with a slide designer before. I love the way it really elevates the deck.”
PRODUCT MANAGER, MEDICAL EQUIPMENT COMPANY
How It Works

Create Your Slides

We’ll send or upload the final deliverable to you with all custom shapes, graphics, charts, and graphs with linked data files. And, it’s all fully editable!
“I think they’re amazing; they observe the problem, schedule immediately, sketch immediately, and sometimes send a few sketches to get a sense if that is the right direction. I like the way that Vashte checks in, I like the fact that they can work very, very quickly. I think their work is very exemplary. I love the fact that every item is editable—that’s just unbelievable to me.”

PowerPoint Slide Design Packages
Our clients love our slide packages for Qualitative or Quantitative Market Research Reports, internal Sales & Marketing Decks, Product Planning, Proposals and Capabilities Decks, and more. They’re a great fit for startups, market research firms, client-side research departments, and Enterprise-level businesses of all kinds.
Slide Packages are a pre-paid bundle of slides you and your team can use over time, across multiple projects.
Custom-Branded PowerPoint Templates
We’ll work with you and your team to expertly craft your custom corporate template from the ground up, including your branding, fonts, colors, and graphic assets.
To begin, we’ll interview key members of your team to understand exactly how the deck will be used in the real world, enabling us to customize the backend of the deck with template slides with the layouts and placeholders your team needs to work smarter, not harder.
One Pagers & Infographics
Consolidate your story onto a one page or infographic that’s easily shareable and quickly digestable by even the busiest C-level clients. We’ll work with you to beautifully condense your content down to its essence. Fun fact—in Japan, these one-pagers are known as “一枚ベスト”, meaning, “one-page best”. We think so, too.
End-to-End Complete Qual or Quant Deliverable
We’re market researchers and designers who’ve created stunning deliverables for qual and quant projects of all kinds. Our backgrounds include Kelton Research, Nestle, Disney, Honda R&D, and a whole lot more, enabling us to blend a consultative research role with storytelling and deliverable creation.
We know we’re best positioned to help researchers not just as designers, but as experienced researchers the earlier we’re involved. Further, clients can better predict costs by baking us into the project from the very beginning.
We start working on the deliverable at project kickoff, and are a part of your team meetings and interviews–all feed into our ability to use the deck-in-progress as a central hub for the team’s insights, your client’s, and some of our own. And when we’re out of field, we’ll lead your team in a Storytelling Workshop where we’ll collaborate on the main themes driving the story, resulting in a stunning, insightful deliverable that resonates.
“We do all kinds of research, from customer research, understanding the marketplace, understanding product design & development, qual & quant, survey-based. So you’re asking a bunch of questions and quantifying that result, and you need to illustrate those results. And you don’t want to use the same questions over and over again with a bar graph or pie chart, you want to visualize them.You want these insights to come alive. And that’s what Slidedesignr does; with iconography, different palettes, different design textures to really visualize and help an audience really understand and help a presenter present these ideas really impactfully.”

What's it like to work with a Slidedesignr?
When we begin creating your slides, we don’t work in a black box; our open process is collaborative and iterative.

For new clients, we typically will budget 5 slides/business day. For our longer-term relationships, turnaround times become shorter and shorter as we become more acquainted with your style and your voice.
We’re happy to jump in on rush projects. Need it faster? No problem! We’ll align our schedules and assign the members of our team necessary to make that happen. Your cost per slide will reflect our standard rates * a small multiplier for easy budgeting.
