Design types can be a little prickly with their craft at the best of times.
Being precious and (sometimes over-) protective goes with being innovative and creative. But going anywhere near the territory of Microsoft Word or Powerpoint should be at your own peril!
Requests for drafts of websites, videos, ad campaigns, event stands and brochures to be shared in Powerpoint are received with derision – and with an ‘air of deflation’ that shifts in the colours/layout/fonts are going to completely ruin the art.
Check out the meme, ‘Powerpoint rage’. Have you triggered or experienced ‘the stare’?
The challenges represented by ‘MS rage’ relate to;
- Campaign managers managing stakeholder input on programmes, where Adobe Acrobat is not a fully supported corporate tool
- Agency account relationship owners who have to take the client requests back into the creative team
- Content owners and managers who need to blend agency efforts with assets produced internally with corporate tools
