Presentation boards – methods, materials and media

Ref: K1D32197

About this course

Learn effective presentation methods to help you sell your scheme to clients, culminating in a practical presentation sample board workshop.

Course Description

Presentation boards, whether they are digital or physical, are the most effective ways to explain and sell your design schemes to clients. In this one-day course, we will survey some of the top digital presentation methods currently available, as well as explore other physical presentation methods of your concept, drawings, samples and furniture.

While digital presentation methods are extremely effective for showing your client the concept, drawings and furniture, nothing gives the client as good an idea of a proposed scheme than a board with the actual materials mounted beside pictures of the relevant furniture.

This day will demonstrate how to create and mount a professional-quality presentation sample board. The course will include techniques to achieve a successful arrangement which illustrates your decorative scheme most effectively. The day culminates in a practical workshop where you will create your own presentation sample board.
