How to Pimp Out Your Boring Bullet Points for Maximum Engagement

Not to sound like a broken record, but like all professional presentation designers, we are not a fan of bullet points. There are so many different ways to take a boring bullet point and make it look nice! And by making it look nice, we mean making it not look like a bullet point.

Some people simply don’t know better (if you’ve been following our blog for a while, hopefully that’s not you! If you are new here, get ready to learn some things!).

There are many screenshot tools that can be used to take screenshots including Microsoft’s Snipping Tool (that comes with Windows), Evernote’s Skitch, and of course there is the good old fashioned Print Screen key on your keyboard when you quickly want to take a screenshot of your entire screen.

So here’s the deal:
