General Design Tips
  • Use dark background with light text
  • Use 2-3 fonts at most
  • Use 2-3 colors at most
  • Look at your slides in black white
  • Good design should look as good as it does in
    color
  • One slide per 1-2 minutes

5
Use the same color scheme throughout your
presentation.
6
Transitions Sound
  • Stick with 1 or 2 transitions
  • Use animation sparingly
  • Use sound judiciously

7
Use Empty Space
  • Empty space adds impact
  • It makes message effective

Yellow with black or blue background
is considered the most readable.

Take Advantage of Black Outs
  • Use your B key to black out
  • Use your W key to white out

This allows the audience to focus on what you are
saying.

Visuals

Rules for Text
  • Slide should simply outline speaking points
  • Create brief attention getters
  • One concept per slide
  • One slide for every 1-2 minutes
  • Obey the rule of six by six
  • No more than six words and six lines per slide

19
Point Size

  • If so audience can read it from a projected image

Font Size
  • 1 letters readable from 10 feet
  • 2 letters readable from 20 feet
  • 3 letters readable from 30 feet
