Elder Renlund was recently sustained as a member of the Twelve Apostles. My sister recommended that I go back and study this talk which he gave a few years ago as an insight into the heart of our new Apostle. The audience for this talk is the membership of the Church as well as all who desire a change of heart. Narrowing the message down to an outline and then narrowing the ideas even further into simple text for each slide was challenging for me. I had trouble finding just the right images, but then the images began to help me refine the text messages. I choose a simple complementary color scheme of light yellow, a custom color designed from the wheat in the last slide, and indigo for the text. Time was limited, so I just jumped into designing the PowerPoint without sketching out my design. I followed an image in my head.
I received only 1 critique this week, from my husband, David. I trust his design and color expertise. He helped me choose the right shade of yellow/gold in the wheat. He also pointed out some slides where I had not followed my pattern of picture and text placement. I made all the corrections he suggested. I also revised text to more fully describe the idea and connect with the image and the talk.
