“Giving PowerPoint the best purpose in its history“

ABOUT THE PROJECT

An unlikely collaboration between a presentation design studio and Bay Area indie band, Everyone is Dirty. The project creators drew from the near death experience of the band's lead singer, crafting a dreamy overland journey through the valley of death by a young violinist trying to reclaim her spirit from the clutches of evil. Quite possibly one of the most creative uses of PowerPoint, the 34 slide animated video will change the way you view the much maligned program. Fans of famed illustrator Ezra Jack Keats will appreciate the nod.

 

    WHY POWERPOINT? THAT'S INSANE!

    We get that question a lot! As a creative team challenge*, Deckhand wanted to explore the capabilities of the world's most notorious software and showcase its possibilities. Further inspired by David Byrne's experiments with the medium, our goal was to push PowerPoint even further and take the tool out of the boardroom and into the mainstream.

    *Please note that this was purely done as a personal project and is not intended to be an endorsement for Deckhand Design, PowerPoint or Microsoft.
