Upcoming Creative Inspirations: Duarte Design

Published by | Friday, May 8th, 2009


I was in Mountain View, California on Wednesday 5/6/09 at a lynda.com video shoot for an upcoming Creative Inspiration documentary profiling Duarte Design. Their space is so inspiring!

Good design in an office space really makes my heart sing. It was also inspiring to meet another female entrepreneur who started her business with her husband, has a family, created a book, does training, and has a company. It’s almost freaky! Nancy Duarte is the author of the beautiful book Slide:ology, and has built a business around creating compelling PowerPoint presentations.

I know a lot of people don’t put the words ‘PowerPoint’ and ‘compelling’ in the same sentence, but Duarte Design has a 65(!) person staff of artists and storytellers who transform the art of presentation. The lynda.com documentary will be completed by end of year; meanwhile head over to Nancy’s site and blog and check it out!!!

    I really look forward to Duarte Design. I haven’t heard of a firm like this before and PowerPoint and Keynote presentation design are a couple of my personal fortes!

    Have you ever considered doing a quick Creative Inspirations set on a startup company like Common Craft?

    This is a husband and wife, two person firm looking to solve the explanation problem (whom I have no affiliation to). They can be found at http://www.commoncraft.com/.

    Blog is at http://www.commoncraft.com/blog.

    I don’t know if it is bad form to leave this comment here, but I didn’t know which touch point would be appropriate to communicate these recommendations with Lynda.

    At any rate, keep delivering the great videos. I am really appreciative of lynda.com.
