To bear in mind when designing slides

Things you might have heard before, but are a good reminder.

  • Pictures are superior to text!
    Maybe you remember in primary school how you showed the rest of the class pictures when you had to give a talk, those pictures from back than are the slides of today. You do the talking, the slides are there to visually support your message.
  • A picture is worth a thousand words, at least a good picture! So be picky in selecting images, use high quality and vivid photos.
  • Limit text on your slide, get rid of details and include only the essentials (you can mention details in your speaking notes)
  • All text should be short and snappy: use powerful single words, short sentences or a few concise sentences.
  • Bring up one main idea per slide: don’t overload your audience with too much information at once, give them time to process all information.
