PowerPoint Tips

PowerPoint Design Tips

  • Use a sans serif font for the body text of your slide. Fonts such as Arial, Helvetica, or Calibri are easier to read
  • Only use decorative fonts for slide headers and then only if they’re easy to read. Decorative fonts can be hard to read and should be reserved only for large headlines at the top of the page.
  • Put dark text on a light background
  • Align text left or right. Centered text is harder to read. It will look better and be easier to follow on the left or right.
  • Avoid clutter. Only include a headline, a few bullet points, and maybe an image on each slide. Anything more text than that will overwhelm your audience and distract them from listening to you.

The 10-20-30 Rule

  • 10 slides - map out your main ideas; your audience will probably not even remember more than ten points from your presentation.
  • 20 minutes total - that's no more than 2 minutes per slide; be efficient when speaking and focus on the most important points.
  • 30 point font - use less text to summarize (not explain) your main points; this makes slide easier to understand and see.

These are guidelines, not rules - you should always follow the directions provided by your instructor.
