Now let"s get into lớn these killer slide deck presentation design tips.

Setting up Your Slide Deck

1. Software: If you"re unsure how to lớn begin building your slides, Keynote (part of the iWork bundle) is widely considered the favorite presentation software of designers who are also seasoned presenters. PowerPoint & plain old PDFs will also vì the triông xã.

Learn how khổng lồ start using PowerPoint in this tutorial:

While software should be established upfront, it is arguably a secondary concern. The qualities that will make or break your presentation are the nội dung và the kiến thiết. Spend most of your time creating và displaying your content.

2. File format: Ask whoever is organizing your sự kiện how you should deliver your presentation.

Will there be a computer and a projector for you to use?What file types are accepted?How big is the presentation room? This will give sầu you an idea how large to phối your text, though generally, bigger is always better.

A PDF is usually a safe bet & serves as a reliable backup khổng lồ whatever format you go with. If you are running the slides yourself, go over the keyboard shortcuts và make sure you can navigate your way around the software so that your presentation will run uninterrupted.

3. Size: Generally, a 1024x768 kích cỡ at 72 dpi is yet another safe bet. Most projectors vị not have a resolution higher than this (those that vày tover khổng lồ be pricier). Images smaller than the projector"s output will enlarge fuzzy và pixelated, so plan for the best case scenario, or highest form size possible, keeping in mind that the larger the presentation size the larger (& heavier) your tệp tin kích thước. The 1024x768 resolution strikes a good balance between displaying nicely and running smoothly.

4. Transitions: Go easy on the transitional animations. Simple & subtle transitions vị the trichồng of getting from one slide khổng lồ the next without distracting from your important nội dung. Transitions on their own are not all that important to a slide deông chồng, but implemented carefully, they can add that final, professional touch.

5. Templates: A presentation template thiết kế needs lớn be truly worth using. They can be poorly designed, commonly used (others will have sầu the same deông xã as you), or are not versatile enough to lớn create an interesting presentation. It is better lớn make your own chất lượng template with a simple background or texture and consistent use of fonts. 

Ideally, the thiết kế will speak to lớn your subject matter. If you"re not experienced at designing your own slides though, here are some professional PowerPoint templates for inspiration or purchase.

6. Give yourself credit: Make sure your name & a way lớn liên hệ you are clearly labeled within your dechồng, typically on the first or last slides, or both.

Preparing Your Content

7. Placement: Unless you are confident that your presentation will take place in a venue with stadium seating, be sure khổng lồ place text and important information at the top of the slide. This way those in the baông xã can still get the gist of your talk without trying to dodge the heads và hairdos of tall people standing in front of them.

8. Leave room for additional insights: Do not plan lớn reiterate what is already apparent on the slide. Words và images should be a trigger for what you are going lớn say, reinforcing your speech, not making your speech redundant.

9. One idea per slide: Text và visuals on the same slide should speak khổng lồ the same idea. What you are saying while that slide is on display should also tư vấn that idea, even if you plan to go further into lớn depth. 

Better yet, choose the deepest idea – the most detailed or the most complex – to lớn display on your slide so that people will listen as you build up your narrative sầu, helping them make sense of what they are seeing. This reinforces understanding. If you need or want khổng lồ talk about a new idea, create another slide. If the idea is not worthy of a new slide then perhaps you could reconsider whether it is necessary lớn include it.

10. Avoid bullet points: When you are able, trade the các mục format for a more interesting photograph or illustration that demonstrates the same idea. If you cannot avoid them completely, limit yourself to three short bullets, which will be easier to lớn digest than five sầu or ten long ones.


11. Bigger is better: Use large text & large images. The larger the better because they will be easier for those in the baông chồng khổng lồ see. This should go without saying, but too many presentations have images with photographs too small khổng lồ see from a distance. Consider swapping small images with a svào headline or a larger illustration.

12. One image per slide: Just as there should be one idea per slide, there should also only be one image per slide. This keeps the message straightforward & focused, và it ensures you will take the advice above sầu và use extra-large images.

13. Vary your visuals: Your deck shouldn"t have 100% of one type of graphic. Ideally it will mix photographs, illustrations, và text lớn sustain your audience"s interest. The same format over & over again is boring, which is another reason not to use a standard template.

14. Creative Commons: Images with Creative Commons licenses are uploaded for không tính phí use in things lượt thích presentations, but be sure you provide proper image credit. Some licenses allow manipulation of an image, others vì chưng not. Nearly all require attribution, so be sure lớn provide credits when you insert the image inlớn your slide show. Find the images you need by searching via CreativeCommons.org.


15. Display less than 15 words per slide, preferably less than 10: The faster someone can read what"s on your slide, the quicker they will return to lớn your face & concentrate on what you are saying. However uncomfortable this idea may make you, it is this engagement that you need in order khổng lồ captivate your audience và deliver an effective presentation.

These statistics give sầu you an idea of how fast your audience will be able to absorb your nội dung (as well as how fast you will be able to lớn nội dung it). The average person:

speaks about 150 words per minute;reads about 250 lớn 300 words per minute;writes about 20 words per minute while copying.

Remember, you want your audience to be paying attention to lớn you while they are looking at the slides. Note: Your audience will read faster than you can speak. The duration of a slide should last no longer than a couple of minutes, which is no hard and fast rule, but the idea is that you should feel confident you are not boring your audience. It only takes a split second to lớn thua someone"s interest & can take quite a few more khổng lồ regain it.

16. Ensure colors are high-contrast: Most projectors vày not display perfectly accurate color. Also, the rooms that you present in are rarely pitch blachồng, even when the lights are out and curtains are drawn. This unfortunate truism means there will be less contrast onscreen, và even though they look slick, darker colors (lượt thích red on black) become difficult khổng lồ read. Instead use light-colored text on a dark background or vice versa.

17. Use legible type with a good weight: Just as you should opt for colors with high contrast, you also want people to be able khổng lồ read your slides from a distance. Avoid thin và ultra-thin typefaces which have a tendency khổng lồ disappear into their backgrounds. Also avoid difficult-to-read display fonts, unless of course the effect is intentional.

Delivering Your Presentation

18. Walk through your slides ahead of time: Attempt a dry-run of your presentation with your slides at least twice. This will help you figure out which slides might be irrelevant, whether the ordering is appropriate, as well as how khổng lồ transition from one idea khổng lồ the next. 

The more familiar you are with your slides và the narrative sầu you intkết thúc to lớn spin around them, the smoother your presentation will go. Cheông xã out the excellent tips in Learning lớn Love (or Survive) Speaking Events.

19. Write a script: If you are worried about losing your place while you are speaking, write a script lớn sit alongside your slides that will jog your memory (simply two or three bullet points per slide). You can always keep this menu next to you & refer to lớn it while you present.

20. Surprise your audience and yourself: Don"t include anything in your slide deông xã that bores you, or it will surely bore your audience as well. Among muốn the ways khổng lồ keep your slides interesting:

Be funny. Tell a joke or show a comical illustration.Talk about why you"re passionate.Tell a personal story.

Your slides should reinforce these ideas. Try lớn imagine the possibilities with your deck. Look at other decks for inspiration. Be sure khổng lồ attempt a creative sầu approach toward your subject-matter, even if it means taking a risk. Doing so will make your presentation more memorable.


Once your presentation is over và done with (whew), try not lớn fully relax until you"ve followed through completely.

21. Share your slides: Host your slides in a public forums for people to see & tải về, which will allow you to continue reaping the benefits of your presentation well after the event is over.
