  • An effective visual contains three major elements: <br /> 1. Eye movement <br /> 2. Balance <br /> 3. Contrast <br />
  • <br />
  • How the eye moves around the screen is important <br /> - What do you want them to focus on? <br /> - Make sure they focus on that! <br /> <br />
  • Balance is about VISUAL WEIGHT <br /> - If everything is important, NOTHING is important <br /> - If everything is a priority, then NOTHING is a priority <br />
  • CONTRAST is about CLARITY and SIMPLICITY <br /> - Is it clear what the picture is? <br /> - Is it clear WHY the picture is being used? <br /> - Is the type easy to read? <br /> - What words are important? <br />
  • THREE WAYS TO HELP CONTROL EYE MOVEMENT and CREATE BALANCE and UTILIZE CONTRAST <br /> 1. Use the Rule of Thirds <br />

  • Faces and hands are important! <br /> Don&#x2019;t cover them up! <br />

  • Control EYE MOVEMENT and create BALANCE using the REDUCING <br />
  • Don&#x2019;t crowd the edges <br />
  • Note that with no border - the text doesn&#x2019;t crowd the edge. <br /> There is no edge! <br />
  • <br />
  • Eliminate RECTANGLES to control eye movement and create BALANCE <br />
  • Note that by turning the background black - there is no longer a large box to stay in. <br /> <br /> Your eye only sees one. <br /> <br /> Notice how much more dramatic this is! <br />
  • Simplify it one step further - one box - one thought! <br />
  • How many rectangles are there? <br /> <br /> Why that type face? <br /> Look at the border of the images? <br />
  • <br />
  • Note that with no border - the text doesn&#x2019;t crowd the edge. <br /> There is no edge! <br />
  • Don&#x2019;t have people look off the edge of the slide... <br /> <br /> Unless that is where you are standing! <br />

  • Graphics need to be the correct size and resolution. <br /> <br /> FULLSCREEN = 1024 x 768 <br /> <br /> You can always make images SMALLER - degrade when you make them BIGGER <br /> <br />

  • Every asks how big text should be. <br /> They want a pat answer - but that isn&#x2019;t possible <br /> <br /> 10-20-30 - 10 slides, 20 minutes, 30 point type <br /> <br /> - move back number of feet from monitor <br /> - Use Slide Sorter view set to 60% <br />

  • GO to the back row of the auditorium and project your presentation <br />
  • Characters in serif fonts have little projections or &#x2018;tails&#x2019; (serif = tail in French) at the end of strokes and line widths that thin out on curves. The serifs guide a reader&#x2019;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. <br /> 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. <br /> Fonts for Presentations <br /> Sans-serif fonts are perhaps the best choice for presentation design because sans-serif fonts are more legible than serif fonts when projected. <br /> 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. <br /> 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. <br /> Cursive or decorative fonts easily distract the eye and make a presentation look unprofessional. Use such fonts sparingly in presentations. <br /> Avoid using more than two fonts in a presentation; too many fonts lead to inconsistency in visual design. <br /> <br />

  • Why is the text too small? <br /> They didn&#x2019;t SIMPLIFY! <br /> <br /> They are trying to say too much, too fast <br /> PROBLEM - You speak at 150WPM people read at 250WPM! <br />
  • <br />
  • <br />
  • TOO MUCH TO READ AT ONCE! <br /> <br /> Problem was they brought this all in at once &#x2013; it gives people too much to read. <br /> While you are trying to explain the 3rd thing they are disagreeing with 7 and 8! <br /> <br /> Bring lists in one item at a time&#x2026;keep them focused on what you are talking about&#x2026;.not what is coming up! <br />
  • Break down each main point then show the following slides <br />

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
