How to Make Graphic Design in WPS Office PowerPoint

WPS Office PowerPoint is a free, user-friendly presentation software that allows you to easily create professional graphic designs right within your slides. With powerful tools like built-in icons, images, and an array of design options, you can take your presentations to the next level.

Plan Out Your Graphic Design

The first step is to plan out the graphic design you want to create. Think about elements like:

  • Colors
  • Shapes
  • Text
  • Decorations
  • Layout
  • Theme

Having a clear vision in mind will make the design process much smoother. You can even sketch some initial ideas on paper.

Add Graphics and Images

Once you have a plan, start adding graphics and images to your slides. WPS Office Presentation has a built-in library of icons and images you can use. You can also insert your own pictures and illustrations.

To add images:

  1. Click the Insert tab
  2. Click Pictures to insert images from your computer
  3. Search the built-in icon library for relevant graphics

Make sure your images are high-quality and visually appealing.

Use Shapes and Text Boxes

Leverage shapes and text boxes to layout your design elements. Here are some tips:

  • Insert custom shapes from the Shapes menu
  • Resize, rotate and arrange shapes
  • Add text boxes over shapes
  • Format text with WordArt styles
  • Align and group objects to keep things organized

Experiment with different combinations of shapes, text, and images to create interesting designs.

Apply Color Schemes and Effects

Color can make a huge impact on the look and feel of your graphic design. WPS Office has several built-in color schemes you can apply to quickly change the colors of your presentation.

To access color schemes:

  1. Go to the Design tab
  2. Click on Color Schemes
  3. Browse the different options

You can also add visual effects like shadows, 3D rotations, and reflections using the formatting tools. Don’t be afraid to try bold colors and effects to make your graphics pop!

Use SmartArt for Data Visualizations

If you want to visualize data or ideas, WPS Office has a “SmartArt” feature that works similarly to Microsoft Office.

To add a SmartArt graphic:

  1. Click the Insert tab
  2. Select WPSArt
  3. Choose from categories like Process, Hierarchy, Relationship, etc.
  4. Customize the layout and design

SmartArt makes it easy to create professional data graphics to clearly communicate information.

Draw Custom Elements

For a handmade look, you can draw custom elements right on your slides.

  1. Go to the Insert tab
  2. Select Shapes
  3. Choose the Scribble shape
  4. Draw whatever you like with your mouse or touchpad

This gives you the freedom to add handwritten text, underlines, and doodles.

Add Your Branding

Once your core graphic design is complete, incorporate your brand colors, fonts, and logo to give it a polished, professional look.

Having visual brand consistency makes your presentation easily recognizable. Place your logo prominently and use it to frame or accent your custom graphics.

Best Practices For Graphic Design Slides

Here are some best practices to follow when designing graphics for PowerPoint slides:

  • Keep designs simple – don’t overload slides with too many elements
  • Use ample white space and clean layouts
  • Make sure text is easy to read over backgrounds
  • Be consistent with fonts, colors, and branding
  • Focus graphics on key information you want to communicate
  • Use high-quality, relevant images
  • Balance text and visuals

Following graphic design principles will ensure your slides look world-class.
