  • An effective visual contains three major elements:
    1. Eye movement
    2. Balance
    3. Contrast

  • How the eye moves around the screen is important
    - What do you want them to focus on?
    - Make sure they focus on that!

  • Balance is about VISUAL WEIGHT
    - If everything is important, NOTHING is important
    - If everything is a priority, then NOTHING is a priority
  • CONTRAST is about CLARITY and SIMPLICITY
    - Is it clear what the picture is?
    - Is it clear WHY the picture is being used?
    - Is the type easy to read?
    - What words are important?
  • THREE WAYS TO HELP CONTROL EYE MOVEMENT and CREATE BALANCE and UTILIZE CONTRAST
    1. Use the Rule of Thirds




  • OR slightly graduated
  • OR slightly graduated
  • FOUR WAYS TO HELP CONTROL EYE MOVEMENT and CREATE BALANCE and UTILIZE CONTRAST
    1. Use the Rule of Thirds



  • Faces and hands are important!
    Don’t cover them up!


  • Control EYE MOVEMENT and create BALANCE using the REDUCING
  • Don’t crowd the edges
  • Note that with no border - the text doesn’t crowd the edge.
    There is no edge!

  • Eliminate RECTANGLES to control eye movement and create BALANCE
  • Note that by turning the background black - there is no longer a large box to stay in.

    Your eye only sees one.

    Notice how much more dramatic this is!
  • Simplify it one step further - one box - one thought!
  • How many rectangles are there?

    Why that type face?
    Look at the border of the images?

  • Note that with no border - the text doesn’t crowd the edge.
    There is no edge!
  • Don’t have people look off the edge of the slide...

    Unless that is where you are standing!




  • You never get a second chance to make a first impression!

  • Graphics need to be the correct size and resolution.

    FULLSCREEN = 1024 x 768

    You can always make images SMALLER - degrade when you make them BIGGER












  • NEVER DISTORT PEOPLE!!

    They were trying to make the image fit the fullscreen but had to distort it to get there.






  • Problem was they brought this all in at once – it gives people too much to read.
    While you are trying to explain the 3rd thing they are disagreeing with the 7th and 8th












  • Every asks how big text should be.
    They want a pat answer - but that isn’t possible

    10-20-30 - 10 slides, 20 minutes, 30 point type

    - move back number of feet from monitor
    - Use Slide Sorter view set to 60%


  • Use Slide Sorter View set at 60% (or Medium)
  • GO to the back row of the auditorium and project your presentation
  • Characters in serif fonts have little projections or ‘tails’ (serif = tail in French) at the end of strokes and line widths that thin out on curves. The serifs guide a reader’s eyes to flow across lines of text. Conventionally, serif fonts are used for smaller text such as blocks of texts in newspapers. Serif fonts are harder to read from a distance. Examples of serif fonts are Times New Roman, Times Roman, Garamond and Palatino.
    Characters in sans-serif fonts have more consistent line widths and do not have tails (sans = without in French.) Sans-serif fonts appear clear, fresh and balanced in shape and form. Conventionally, sans-serif fonts are used for larger text such as headlines or text in posters. Sans-serif fonts are the most popular choice for on-screen (TV, computer, etc.) text because of their clarity in display. Examples of sans-serif fonts are Helvetica, Arial, Futura and Verdana.
    Fonts for Presentations
    Sans-serif fonts are perhaps the best choice for presentation design because sans-serif fonts are more legible than serif fonts when projected.
    With serif fonts, given the limited resolution of projectors, some of the thinner strokes tend to break-up or disappear when projected, especially at smaller sizes.
    Characters in monospace fonts (e.g., Courier New and Monaco) each occupy the same amount of space. Use monospace fonts for tabulated information or computer console output only.
    Cursive or decorative fonts easily distract the eye and make a presentation look unprofessional. Use such fonts sparingly in presentations.
    Avoid using more than two fonts in a presentation; too many fonts lead to inconsistency in visual design.





  • Why is the text too small?
    They didn’t SIMPLIFY!

    They are trying to say too much, too fast
    PROBLEM - You speak at 150WPM people read at 250WPM!


  • TOO MUCH TO READ AT ONCE!

    Problem was they brought this all in at once – it gives people too much to read.
    While you are trying to explain the 3rd thing they are disagreeing with 7 and 8!

    Bring lists in one item at a time…keep them focused on what you are talking about….not what is coming up!
  • Break down each main point then show the following slides
  • Problem was they brought this all in at once – it gives people too much to read.
    While you are trying to explain the 3rd thing they are disagreeing with the 7th and 8th










  • The biggest difference is that I used SEVEN different slides instead of ONE crowded one.





  • Work for CONTRAST, but don’t overdo it

They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. - Acts 2:36-45, NASB95
