We Love “The Onion”

Sunday, July 24th, 2011 by Simon Morton

You’ve got to love “The Onion“, the news source with it’s tongue firmly in it’s satirical cheek…

From the frankly shocking “Project Manager leaves suicide PowerPoint” report from back in 2005 to the more recent “Wow Factor Added to Corporate Presentation” scandal, they’ve always raised a smile here at Eyeful Towers.

So imagine our excitement when they combined both PowerPoint AND Infographics:

Amidst the outbreak of wry smiling and knowing nods, it raises an important point.

We’ve ranted on about the overuse of wild animation in the past (this Toy Story 3 inspired entry is well worth a read) and implore users of PowerPoint, Keynote and especially Prezi to approach with caution.

That said, I’m off to work on the double-ripple dissolve transition.

Nice idea, chaps…
