Title: Effective Presentation Slide Design


1
Effective Presentation Slide Design
  • Elizabeth Auger Ashworth Nipissing University,
    North Bay, Ontario, Canada

2
What is effective slide design?
  • Grabs and keeps attention
  • Information presented clearly
  • Information accompanied by related images
  • Uses good graphic design practices (e.g.,
    C.R.A.P. contrast, repetition, alignment,
    proximity)
  • Balance between good design and good content

3
Good slide design
  • high contrast
  • natural colors
  • consistent font style
  • limited number of
  • bullets
  • good amount of info
  • image related to
  • content
  • good border width

4
Poor slide design
  • low contrast
  • busy graphic
  • graphic unrelated to
  • content
  • needs an image
  • first two bullets have
  • too much information

5
Thesis question
  • Does the inclusion of effective graphic design
    practices really matter with regard to making
    presentation slides memorable?

6
Methodology
  • 71 grade 10 media arts students (35 females, 36
    males, 3 with ADD)
  • All shown digital slide presentation of history
    of the Internet and tested on content
  • Presentation contained both well-designed slides
    and poorly-designed ones
  • All students given survey of how each slide
    helped them to remember content
  • ADD students were interviewed re retention of
    content

7
Findings
  • Females results showed low significance re
    quality of slide design
  • Males results showed high significance re
    quality of slide design
  • ADD students results showed opposite results to
    accepted theories re graphics
  • All participants stated they liked few bullets,
    colorful designs, and images to help them remember

Implications for teachers
  • For female audiences, any choice of slide design
    is fine
  • For male audiences, use dark backgrounds, light
    text, and images
  • For ADD audiences, go bright with images
  • Art teachers can educate their colleagues re
    good graphic design practices
  • Apply these practices to other visual aids
  • Focus on needs of audience, not the presenter

Further research
  • Similar study with other age groups (e.g.,
    students in post-secondary institutions)
  • Similar study in other venues (e.g., business
    world)
  • Similar study expanding variables (e.g., use more
    elements and principles, animations, sound,
    timing, etc.)
