  •  Use 18-48 point easy-to- read fonts  Use bulleted sentence fragments  Spell and punctuate correctly  Use colors that contrast with background  Be consistent with capitalization DO
  •  Have more than 6-7 lines on a slide  Have more than 6-7 words on a line  Use complete sentences  Use abbreviations, acronyms, or all caps  Use unusual fonts DON’T
  •  Enhance point with graphics  Use graphics to convey emotion  Balance slides with graphics  Animate to reveal points when relevant  Synthesize and highlight info from tables and graphs  Simplify! DO
