And no – that’s not a typo!
Glassmorphism began as a hugely popular UI design trend in 2021.
By 2022 it was embraced by those in the business of designing presentation decks.
Before we explain why, let’s have a look at what it is:
Glassmorphism is a term used to describe UI design that emphasises light or dark objects, placed on top of colourful backgrounds. A background-blur is placed on the objects which allows the background to shine through – giving it the impression of frosted glass.– anchordigital.com
The next question that arises is: how can it help in pitching decks better?
On the design front, glassmorphism enables:
- Differentiation – from standard flat colour, solid block approaches
- Dimension – thanks to the layering possibilities
- Dynamism – without having to animate
From the point of view of company values, glassmorphism can convey subliminal message such as:
- Transparency – of intent and content
- Clarity – of action plans and proposals
- Modernity – of approaches and mindsets
In short, Glassmorphism is best suited when you want your presentation to convey your vision – and your mission! – in a manner that is subtle, vivid, smooth, and stylish.
And finally: how can this aesthetic be best adapted for PowerPoint presentations?
By seeking professional design help!
Glassmorphism is a perfect example of the light touch being the right touch – and is thus best executed by those with enough experience in finding just the right balance, as overdoing it will simply undermine the desired outcome!
