Welcome to the Guild!

Champagne Design — PowerPoint Design

PowerPoint 95!  That stigma attached to PowerPoint seems to be fading, even print designers appreciate presentation guru’s specialized skill set and experience with projected content.

Now my next step is to obtain my Masters designation.
