Title: PowerPoint%20Design%20Tips


1
PowerPoint Design Tips
  • Computer Applications
  • Spring 2007

2
Dont Overuse Effects
  • Focus attention on the presentation content
  • Use effects that enhance the presentation
  • Less is more with effects

3
Bad Example
  • This is an overuse of effects
  • Less is more, not more is more

4
Dont Overcrowd Slides
  • Use 3 to 6 bullets per slide
  • 6x6 or 6 bullets / 6 words each
  • Avoid sub-headings, use separate slide
  • Bring in bullets one by one

5
This is an example of overcrowding a PowerPoint
slide
  • You dont need to type in every single word you
    want to say. This will be distracting to your
    audience and is not a proper use of presentation
    software. Furthermore, individuals taking notes
    on a presentation will struggle to summarize the
    important information in such a brief period.
    You should summarize it into 3 to 6 bullets that
    are no more than 6 words long.

6
Consider Readability
  • Use large, easy-to-read fonts
  • Coordinate text color to stand out
  • Coordinate text color for visual appeal

7
Readability problems
  • This is too small
  • This color wont show up
  • This color isnt the most appealling

8
Include A Conclusion Slide
  • Identifies end of presentation
  • Summarizes 3 to 5 main points
  • Emphasizes important issues
  • Energizes audience toward action

9
Tips When Presenting
  • Dont read word for word
  • Utilize notes section for elaboration
  • Notes as memory joggers, not script

10
Design Specifics
  • Repeat slide design for continuity
  • Use a consistent font throughout
  • Avoid using all CAPS
  • Use Bold or Italics for emphasis

11
THIS IS MISUSE OF CAPS
  • Changing fonts is distracting
  • Choose one style to stick with
  • Also try to use a professional font
  • KEEP BACKGROUNDS CONSISTENT FOR THE MAJORITY OF
    THE PRESENTATION

12
Conclusion
  • Dont overuse effects
  • Dont overcrowd slides
  • Focus on readability
  • Summarize with conclusion slide
  • Presentation tips
  • Remember specific design tips
