Ai Ching and Andrea Zaggia are the authors and founders of Piktochart a new presentation tool (pre-beta) which promises to deliver a new approach to creating data-rich and visually engaging slideshows and infographs.
Piktochart leverages a number of tools which include a) the Story Teller, b) the Chart Wizard and c) Visual Themes which facilitate tremendously the presenter work by guiding him/her in the process of submitting relevant data and information that will be then applied to an appropriate visual solution.
The idea is certainly very good, but the novice user may find himself a bit lost in editing and organizing the content inside existing templates the first time around.
Given some more good, high-quality templates, and less leeway for the user to make mistales, Piktochart moves one step in the direction that many communication tools will be taking next: making as easy as possible for anyone to produce professionally-looking presentations without being a graphic designer.
