23 The following slides are from an unknown source but are also useful in understanding what is needed for an effective presentation.
24 PowerPoint Presentation Guidelines The following 37 slides present guidelines and suggestions for the use of fonts, colors, and graphics when preparing PowerPoint presentations for Sessions and Seminars. This media (PPT) is designed to ENHANCE your presentation, not BE the presentation. Remember, only you can prevent Death by PowerPoint
25 PowerPoint Slide Highlight key points or reinforce what the facilitator is saying Should be short and to the point, include only key words and phases for visual, reinforcement In order for your presentation to fit on most screens, text and images should be placed within 95% of the PowerPoint slide. This action safe area is seen in the next slide.
27 PowerPoint Layout Layout continuity from frame to frame conveys a sense of completeness Headings, subheadings, and logos should show up in the same spot on each frame Margins, fonts, font size, and colors should be consistent with graphics located in the same general position on each frame Lines, boxes, borders, and open space also should be consistent throughout
28 Fonts Font Style Should be Readable Recommended fonts: Arial, Tahoma, Veranda Standardize the Font Throughout This presentation is in Tahoma Do!
29 Font Size The larger, the better. Remember, your slides must be readable, even at the back of the room. This is a good title size Verdana 40 point A good subtitle or bullet point size Verdana 32 point Content text should be no smaller than Verdana 24 point This font size is not recommended for content. Verdana 12 point.
30 Font Size Combining small font sizes with bold or italics is not recommended: What does this say? Garamond Font, Italic, Bold 12pt. This is very difficult to read. Times Font, Bold, 12pt. This po int c o uld be lo st. C e ntury G o thic Fo nt, Bo ld, Ita lic, 14pt. Don t! No one will be able to read this. Gill Sans Font, Condensed Bold, 12pt Small fonts are okay for a footer, such as: TIPS Presentation: 3/8/2004 Dawn Thomas, CRM
31 Fonts Don t! Don t Sacrifice Readability for Style Don t Sacrifice Readability for Style Don t Sacrifice Readability for Style Don t Sacrifice Readability for Style
32 Caps and Italics DO NOT USE ALL CAPITAL LETTERS Makes text hard to read Conceals acronyms Denies their use for EMPHASIS Italics Used for quotes Used to highligh thoughts or ideas Used for book, journal, or magazine titles
33 Use a Template Use a set font and color scheme. Different styles are disconcerting to the audience. You want the audience to focus on what you present, not the way you present.
34 Use the Same Background on Each Slide Do!!
35 Don t use multiple backgrounds in your presentation Changing the style is distracting Don t!
36 Colors Reds and oranges are high-energy but can be difficult to stay focused on. Greens, blues, and browns are mellower, but not as attention grabbing. Reds and Greens can be difficult to see for those who are color blind.
37 Avoid These Combinations Examples: Green on Blue Dark Yellow on Green Purple on Blue Orange on Green Red on Green Don t!
38 Colors White on dark background should not be used if audience is more than 20 ft away. This set of slides is a good example. You can read the slides up close. The further away you get, the harder it is to read. This is a good color combination if viewed on a computer. A dark background on a computer screen reduces glare.
39 Colors Large Hall Events Don t Avoid White Backgrounds The white screen can be blinding in a dark room Dark Slides with Light Colored Text Work Best
40 The Color Wheel Colors separated by another color are contrasting colors (complementary) Adjacent colors harmonize with one another (Green and Yellow) Colors directly opposite one another are said to CLASH Clashing colors provide readability Orange on Blue Do!
41 Background Colors Remember: Readability! Readability! Readability! This is a good mix of colors. Readable! This is a bad mix of colors. Low contrast. Unreadable! This is a good mix of colors. Readable! This is a bad mix of colors. Avoid bright colors on white. Unreadable!
42 Graphs and Charts Make sure the audience can read them!
43 Graphics and Charts Avoid using graphics that are difficult to read. In this example, the bright colors on a white background and the small font make the graph hard to read. It would be very difficult to see, especially in the back of a room. Don t! 8
44 This graph contains too much information in an unreadable format. Don t! 10
45 Good Graph These are examples of good graphs, with nice line widths and good colors. Do!
46 Charts and Graphs Mode A Mode B Mode C North America Europe Austrailia 0 Don t
47 Charts and Graphs Mode A Mode B Mode C North America Europe Australia 0 Do!
48 This is a good, readable table. Tables, especially large ones, should be placed on a separate slide. 4/19 Fri 109 NICMOS restarted, Ne-loop control continues Do! 4/22 Mon 112 Change to mounting cup control 4/23 Tue 134 Return to Ne control, Filter wheel test begins 4/24 Wed 155 Increase control temperature to allow for +2 K variations 4/25 Thur 165 Begin darks every 3 rd orbit 4/26 Fri 174 DQE test visit 1; Control temp +0.5 K
49 Illustrations Use only when needed, otherwise they become distracters instead of communicators They should relate to the message and help make a point Ask yourself if it makes the message clearer Simple diagrams are great communicators Do!
50 Don t!
51 Limit Each Slide to One Idea Use Bullet Points to Cover Components of Each Idea
52 Bullets Keep each bullet to 1 line, 2 at the most Limit the number of bullets in a screen to 6, 4 if there is a large title, logo, picture, etc. This is known as cueing You want to cue the audience on what you re going to say Cues are a a brief preview Gives the audience a framework to build upon
53 Bullets (con.) If you crowd too much text, the audience won t read it Too much text looks busy and is hard to read Why read it, when you re going to tell them what it says? Our reading speed does not match our listening speed; hence, they confuse instead of reinforce
54 Points to Remember Limit each slide to 1 idea Do not do this! Limit Bullet Points To a few words Limit each bullet point to only a few words to avoid long sentences that go on and on! Limit animation Too much animation can be distracting. Be consistent with animation and have all text and photos appear on the screen the same way each time. There are many animation modes to choose from, but it is best to use just one throughout.
55 Points to Remember Do! Keep bullet points brief Use the same background for each slide Use dark slides with light colored text in large hall events
56 Don t Avoid the All Word Slide Another thing to avoid is the use of a large block paragraph to introduce your information. Attendees do not like to have what is on the screen, read to them verbatim. So, please use short, bulleted statements and avoid typing out your whole presentation on to the slides. Also, it is difficult for some to listen and read a large amount of text at the same time.
57 To make a slide stand out, change the font, background, or add animation.
58 Limit Animation! Use the same animation throughout the entire presentation Using more than one can be very distracting The audience will only see the animation and not the message you re trying to get across Don t Bam!
59 Limit Animation! Use the same animation throughout the entire presentation Using more than one can be very distracting The audience will only see the animation and not the message you re trying to get across Do!
60 YOU Do not use the media to hide you The audience came to SEE you The media should ENHANCE the presentation, not BE the presentation If you re only going to read from the slides, then just send them the slides! Remember, only you can prevent Death by PowerPoint
