Presentation Transcript

  1. PowerPoint Presentation Guidelines In the following 11 slides we present guidelines and suggestions for the use of fonts and colors when preparing PowerPoint Presentations for Colloquia and Webcasts. In order for your presentation to fit on most, if not all screens, text and images should be placed within 95% of the PowerPoint slide size. The “action safe” area is seen in the next slide. 1

  2. FONTS: The larger, the better. Remember, you want your points to be readable even at the back of the venue. Limit your points to one or two sentences - the audience has come to see your presentation, not read a novel! This is a good title size.Verdana 40 point. This is a good subtitle or bullet point size. Verdana 36 point. This is about as small as you want to go for content. Verdana 24 point. This font size is not recommended for content. Verdana 12 point. 3

  3. Combining small font sizes with bold or italics is also not recommended: This is very difficult to read. Times, 10pt. Bold. This point could be lost. Century Gothic Bold Italic, 9pt. Perhaps if you squint. Gill Sans Condensed Bold, 8pt What does this say? Hoefler Text, Italic, Bold 8pt. Small fonts are OK for a footer, such as: 4 Joe Astro/ACS TIPS Presentation: 10/10/2003

  4. Fonts and Background Colors Remember: Readability! Readability! Readability! This is a good mix of colors. Readable! This is a bad mix of colors. Low contrast. Unreadable! This is a good mix of colors. Readable! This is a bad mix of colors. Avoid bright colors on white. Unreadable! 5

  5. More bad color combinations... Using background and font colors, such as these low-contrast combinations, would be very difficult to read. 6

  6. Graphs and Tables In the next few slides we show examples of “good” and “bad” graphics. This is an example of a bad graphic, the overall line width is too narrow. This would be very difficult to see, especially in the back of a room or auditorium. 7

  7. Another example of a bad graph, too many bright colors on a white background, and the legend is very difficult to read. 8

  8. Good Graphs These are examples of good graphs, with nice line widths and good colors. 9

  9. A bad table, too much information in in unreadable format. 10
