• Basic Guidelines
            Screen Layout
• Avoid using the bottom left portion of the
  screen for important information
• Use graphics for instructional purposes, to
  convey a message or concept, or to focus
  attention
• Use single column format
• Do not right justify
                   Fonts
• Avoid using all capital letters, except for a
  word or two of emphasis in short titles or
  buttons
• Try not to use more than three types of fonts
  on one screen
• Use serif fonts for body of text
                   Color
• Avoid using red and green to differentiate
  important points. Roughly 5 to 10 percent
  of the population is red/green deficient.
• Use a maximum of four to six colors per
  screen.
• Use color to link related information.
           Color continued
• Use brighter colors for the most important
  information.
• Use commonplace color coding, such as red
  for stop, green for go, and so forth.
• Avoid combinations of complementary
  colors that are the same value, such as
  blue/orange

  points, control the flow of information, and add interest to
  your presentation.
• You can have each main bullet point appear independently
  of others, or you can have objects appear progressively,
  one after another.
• You can set up the way you want each bullet point or
  object to appear on your slide. A new feature in
  PowerPoint 97 is the ability to animate elements of a
  graph.
