Tutorial for Concepts 002 – Walls and Slide
Using the Artist-Drawn Barriers
This series contains artist's renderings of two types of barriers and a ladder and slide as individual pieces to illustrate overcoming the barriers. This artwork is so useful is because the sections can be used together or independently or animated as reveals to tell a story in ways that clipart or photographs never can. They all fit and work perfectly together.
The series contain two file types: v1 contains the editable version of the drawings (fill and line colors can be added) and v2 contains the uneditable versions (PNG images that have a nice sketchy look).
Download the bridge frameworks onto your desktop and then import them (using the steps below) into your presentation.
Customizing your PowerFrameworks Concept
If you want to change the size/shape of the PowerFramework(s), you'll need to get all of the frameworks on one page and then size them all together. When you paste them onto one page, they should be layered, one on top of the other. Select all together and resize all at once. Once resized, center the groups on the page again and then place the groups back on their respective pages. Then ungroup to proceed with other customizations. It is important to resize and adjust placement of all associated frameworks on one page so there is consistency from page to page. Also, if you want to cut/copy and paste a framework from another page to create animation reveals, they will be positioned correctly so that you can just apply the animation.
Fills and lines can be applied to the first two pages of the download. The other pages are not eligible for edits. Treat the graphics on the first two pages just like you would any other piece of clipart that you want to color/recolor. Download the animated example for an idea about how you might apply color.
Don't use 3Ds with these frameworks.
Don't use shadows on this type of framework.
Gradients, patterns, and pictures
Builds can fade in, fly in from the side of the page, etc. Because these pieces are layered, you should use whatever reveal that helps the audience see it as an added piece. This is particularly important with the ladder portion. The block wall hides most of it. Since the block wall is typically there before the ladder, you may want the ladder to come in from the side so that the audience can see what it is.
