Total Points __________________ % General Design Guidelines § K*I*S*S – Keep It Short & Simple § Use short phrases instead of long sentences § Pictures should make a point. § Double check your spelling – Movie Maker does not have spell check § Pick fonts from the same family (use variations of the same font) § Use Bold Fonts - Avoid ornate or “decorative” fonts - Verdana, Tahoma, Georgia are made for presentations § Font colors should contrast sharply with the background color § The bigger the better for text § Warm colors (red, yellow, orange) command attention. § Use the same colors theme on all slides § Transitions should help focus the audience, not distract them from what you are saying. The best transitions are those that drop down or come in from the left. Really Important To Remember: § CONTENT matters the most – it doesn’t matter how pretty or flashy the slide is if you are not saying anything worthwhile. § It doesn’t matter how good the presentation is if nobody can read it.
