  • This test pretty much proves why slide design should not be like billboards. Each one says a different thing without any interlinking story. After going through so many slides, most people may remember only 1 or 2 brands. Again as a presenter you dont want your audience to forget what was said. I think this article captures these points quite well http://www.presentation-process.com/powerpoint-slide-design-billboard.html
