At ABLE Graphics Printing Corp, we offer a wide range of printing services, and we have helped countless clients create presentation materials over the years. While there are many digital tools available for creating virtual presentations, physical presentation materials are still important, as they give your audience something to refer to after the fact, and they provide an ideal place to take notes.
There is an art to designing presentation materials, and our team has put together this article to share a few tips on the subject.
- Keep it Concise – When creating presentation materials, you should do your best to keep the text as concise as possible. You want your audience to be able to follow along with you, and overloading the pages or slides with text will divide the listeners’ attention, preventing them from fully understanding what you’re saying.
- Use Signposts – We also encourage you to use headings, subheadings, bullet points, and other signposts in the text of your presentation materials. Not only do these visual differences in the text make it easier to read, but they also help clarify the relationship between the various pieces of information, making it obvious which points are details and which are big-picture ideas.
- Keep it Consistent – Lastly, make sure your presentation materials are consistent in design. Pick a single color scheme and stick to it, and choose just one or two fonts and use them throughout the document. Trying to use too many colors or fonts will only make your presentation materials look disorganized and unprofessional.
