SXSW Slide Deck: Frog Design’s David Sherwin’s book, Creative Workshop
March 18th, 2011  |  by choorocca

Was it me or did the SXSW get TONS of online press and coverage? I feel like all I’ve seen everywhere online are S’s X’s and W’s over the last week. And, it seems like a lot of press was participant generated, which is a brilliant marketing strategy. Ha, that said, here’s a little more! A short but sweet tidbit from Frog Design’s David Sherwin on his new book Creative Workshop: 80 Challenges to Sharpen Your Design Skills, that looks to be a good reference resource for any designer or design studio. The slide deck was used as part of a Q & A session at SXSW.

On a slightly different note, I was also surprisingly impressed by the simplicity and power of the slide deck using Slideshare. It wasn’t just the fact that the actual slide deck well scripted and designed, but I was really pleased with the experience using Slideshare. Super easy to use with all the bells and whistles for easy sharing and embedding. Very well done methinks. I never realized that most Slideshow tech that I’ve used was actually pretty crap until I used this as found the experience seamless – maybe it was just me. I have yet to actually post a presentation myself. Either way, I’m guessing it won’t be long before Slideshare becomes a standard….especially since it’s all based in the cloud.

Oh, check out and subscribe toDesign Mind, Frog Design’s blog on design thinking, business, technology and culture. Awesome stuff, word.
