Presentation Design
(& Product Innovation)



Coming up with a product idea for Duolingo naturally made sense. Not only are Duolingo and I both from Pittsburgh, but the app helped me order Schnitzel at Erika's Eck on the regular when I lived in Hamburg, Germany for 3.5 years.

Note that the focus here should be primarily on the presentation deck design and not so much the idea itself (although I love that, too!). I’m a big believer in breaking free from the standard Powerpoint/Keynote templates and customizing your deck to fit your brand in the best way possible. In this case, I adopted Duolingo’s color palette, typeface, characters, and other unique visual elements across the entire deck. The end result is a presentation medium that somewhat mimics Duolingo's actual interface.

Hope you enjoy.

P.S. In case anyone from Duolingo’s design team happens to see this, I apologize for slightly altering both the brand logo and owl's eyes in the image above. I realize that’s generally a brand design no-no, but I also realize design rules aren’t 100% always meant to be followed to a T.
