Tip #1: Respect Your Brand
CONSISTENCY CREATES FAMILIARITY AND IS A VITAL STEP IN DESIGNING AN EFFECTIVE PRESENTATION.
Don’t think of it as stifling your creativity. It’s about reducing inconsistencies and introducing strong brand-relevant elements throughout your presentation. A feeling of continuity creates a fluid flow of information and will appear more structured.
AVOID PREBUILT TEMPLATES INSTEAD, CREATE CUSTOM TEMPLATES.
Using pre-built templates that all users have access to will give your presentation a generic feel. Let’s not even get into how boring that is! Differentiation is key in standing out from your competition. Always be thinking – with the tools I have, what can I do differently that perhaps someone else hasn’t thought of?
USE MASTER PAGES TO MAINTAIN CONSISTENCY FOR VISUAL ELEMENTS INCLUDING COLOR, FONTS, LOGOS, HEADERS, FOOTERS, AND PAGE NUMBERS FROM SLIDE TO SLIDE.
This time-saving tip will not only improve efficiency and speed, but it will help you maintain consistency of visual elements throughout your presentation. All master slides are fully customizable to your liking so you can create multiple variations of content slides, section breaks, and slides to build charts, graphs, and infographics.
