TED |  Presentation Creation

Every year, TED partners with large companies and organizations all over the world to run personalized conferences that perpetuate creativity, innovation, and new ideas. TED works with each org to select speakers, hone their ideas, and make their talks stage-worthy. These events are a celebration of new ways of working and thinking in every field, inspiring listeners from both inside the company and out.

TED brought Oxbow on as advisors and creators for the annual series. Over the course of 6 events, we worked with over 45 incredibly bright and driven individuals, bringing their presentations to life through custom illustration, creative direction, animation, script support, and slide design.


The PRocess


Every speaker is different, but the first step is always the same: get to know them! We walk through each speaker’s script and concept, working in tandem with TED’s speaker coaches and curators. Design begins only once we have a deep understanding of each speaker’s content and concepts. We set out to make each slide was as unique and compelling as the speakers and their ideas.
