ere at Dog and Pony Show, we are constantly inspired by the clients we create presentations for. From small businesses to booming tech companies, we live to craft these slides. As presentations are designed to be visual, engaging, and captivating, we've learned a few tips and tricks to enhance audience outreach. While there are thousands of presentation mediums and platforms, here are 3 simple tricks to brighten any slide.
1. Customize Your Slides
While PowerPoint and Google Slides have a beautiful range of pre-crafted slide templates and format packages, do not let this connivance dissuade you from personalizing your slide design. If your topic has a specific aesthetic that enhances its reception, putting in a little extra effort to stay true to that formatting can enrich your presentation.
2. One Slide = One Topic
Overcrowded slides are not only unappealing to the eye, but also distract from the focus of individual subtopics. Limiting one topic per slide allows viewers to fully absorb each subject, while also enjoying uncluttered slides.
3. Invest in Quality Images
They say that a pictures speaks a thousand words, so it is crucial to ensure that your chosen images are high-quality. Whether you rely on stock photography or original images, high quality visual communication can powerfully effect the reception of a presentation.
