Hi, I’m Cindy Caughey
I founded Projected Design, a boutique slide design studio, that helps small- to medium-sized
companies who do good things, make a bigger impact with their presentation messaging.
Professional presentation design isn't just for the big guys
and I'm here to help you level up.
Believe it or not, I didn’t start out
in life being a wiz at PowerPoint.
Which means that I’ve sat EXACTLY where you’re sitting right now and I have a pretty good idea of how you feel when you want to hurl your computer through the air like you’re competing in the Olympic shot put.
No matter what the problem is with your presentation, whether it's functionality or design... it can be figured out.
So... exactly how did I get to rock at PowerPoint?
Well, I’ve always enjoyed bringing sense to chaos and this is documented as far back as me at 2-months old when my mother noted in my baby book that I like to observe and line up items more than create.
Or, I might be getting that confused with the age of the dawning of my love of horses. Either way, my love of order developed pretty dang early and was documented by the ultimate authority (Mom).
In college, I majored in American Literature with a heavy influence of Greek and Eastern Philosophy before going on to take my first job in a small advertising agency in New Jersey.
That’s when I began building websites and PowerPoint presentations. I moved on to work in Manhattan and worked with huge companies in finance, pharma, healthcare, jets, pet products, candy, household products, tires, and office equipment, as well as local not-for-profit foundations.
My work has been in front of Congress and the United Nations as well as smaller audiences or just a few angle investors.
When it comes to presentations storytelling, logic and graphics are the trifecta of persuasion. It turned out, presentations and I were a natural fit.
