These simple but elegant frameworks are not usually seen in PowerPoint presentations. The design is very difficult to achieve due to layering constraints. Notice that there is a bit of an optical illusion associated with these frameworks: there is no beginning or end. PowerFrameworks has developed an easy way to work with the frameworks, and you'll be able to use them to visually support several concepts:
- The slight overlap suggests order. Those on the bottom come before those on top, especially if animation is used for reveals.
- The overlap also suggests connection between the circles.
- The solid circle of circles suggests a hedge around a central object.
- The layout can provide a very nice design element on a slide, especially when photographs are imported into the circles.
