  3. 3. Logotype on title slides  To make sure that your presentations communicate our brand efficiently, flag the Steria logotype and name in a clear and obvious manner, and especially from the start  First impressions matter most – take ownership of the presentation from the beginning, and feature a large Steria logo on the title slides 14/11/2013 3  www.steria.no
  4. 4. Logotype on content slides  www.steria.no  On subsequent slides, the main emphasis should be on the content. Therefore, a dominant Steria logo does not appear in the top ribbon  Instead, the Steria logotype is included in the bottom right corner of each slide following the natural eye flow (top left to bottom right) 14/11/2013 4

  6. 6. Typeface The typeface used for all Steria presentations is Arial  Arial is a system font available to everyone, including our employees and clients  Using this font means that our slides will look the same regardless of which computer is being used  Never use “Arial Unicode MS” in PowerPoint – when embedded it greatly increases file size  Arial Narrow may be used within charts and diagrams in cases where space is limited 14/11/2013 6  www.steria.no ABCDEFGHIJKLM NOPQRSTUVWXYZ Abcdefghijklm nopqrstuvwxyz 1234567890
  7. 7. Limit the number of type sizes and keep them big for easy reading Body copy: Arial 20pt Slide title: Arial 24pt 14/11/2013 7 Title slide Header: Arial 32pt  www.steria.no Sub header: Arial 20pt

  9. 9. The Steria colour palette  Rather than using a single corporate colour, our colour palette reflects the diversity in which we operate  There are five primary colours and two secondary colours, in addition to greys and white Primary colour palette Secondary colour palette 14/11/2013 9  www.steria.no
  10. 10. Choose between four different slide colours The Steria PowerPoint templates are available in seven different colours 14/11/2013 10  www.steria.no
  11. 11.  www.steria.no Colour theming  If you are pulling together a series of presentations for an event, you can use different colours to provide variation  See example below  Tip: Past in slides from a different presentation with a different colour theme using the Paste /Keep source formatting command Section change 14/11/2013 11
  12. 12. Use colours that complement each other  For best results use colours that complement each other, for example Blue, Teal and Green  Grey works well together with all the colours 14/11/2013 12  www.steria.no

  15. 15. Special considerations when using projectors  Avoid the colour yellow – it is problematic for some people and creates legibility issues  Have sufficient contrast between text and background  Avoid combinations such as  Yellow text on orange background  Yellow text on green background  Red text on blue background  Grey text on any dark colour background  www.steria.no A A A A 14/11/2013 15
  16. 16. The complete colour palette with RGB codes  www.steria.no These RGB codes has been specially selected for onscreen use.

  18. 18.  www.steria.no The basic slide types 1. Title slide (can be plain or with image) 4. Table slide 14/11/2013 18 2. Content slide 3. Two content slide 5. Chart slides 6. Small ribbon image slide
  19. 19. 1. Title slides  www.steria.no  Use the title slide to introduce the presentation – it should establish the theme of what is to follow  Ideally, keep the slide title and subheading to one line – never make them longer than two lines  Use a photo at the bottom only if it will enhance your message – otherwise use the plain option  Use the ‘Title Slide (Background image)’ to ensure your image fits perfectly 14/11/2013 19
  20. 20. 2. Content slides  Avoid running an agenda over more than one slide  Instead reduce the number of bullet points  When introducing a particular section, highlight the line in the agenda by changing it to bold and the slide colour, ie orange, blue, green or red 14/11/2013 20  www.steria.no
  21. 21. 3. Text slides  Text slides may have one or two columns of text  Do not use more than ten bullet points on a slide – the fewer bullet points the better  If a point is especially long, consider splitting it into two or more bullet points or a sub bullet 14/11/2013 21  www.steria.no
  22. 22. 3. Text slides (continued)  There are many ways of combining text slides with a photo, table or graph  Where information is complex, consider a table, diagram or image to simplify its presentation  Try to present only one big idea for each slide 14/11/2013 22  www.steria.no
  23. 23. 4. Table slides  www.steria.no  When you insert a table, the colours will match the slide colour theme.  There are many ways of making tables more memorable and interesting, i.e. combining tables, photos and charts 14/11/2013 23
  24. 24. 5. Chart slides  Make charts and diagrams as clear as possible to better convey the message  The fewer lines, text and figures the better  Avoid too many colours or excessive 3D effects  Use illustrative imagery to add interest 14/11/2013 24  www.steria.no
  25. 25. 6. Image slides  www.steria.no  Use images with care – they should be relevant to the content  The slide colour and image should complement each other  When placing text over an image, ensure that the text is legible – use a solid or semi-transparent box over the image if necessary 14/11/2013 25
  26. 26. Image tucked under the ribbon Use the following two options from the available slide layouts  For a title slide, select “Title slide Background Image”  For a standard slide, select “Small Ribbon full image”  In both cases, click on the icon in the middle of the slide and import the image as a file 14/11/2013 26  www.steria.no
  27. 27. The grid provides a flexible layout system If all your slide elements have been aligned using the layout grid, it gives the presentation a consistent and professional “look and feel” as you move from slide to slide. Make sure to turn on support lines and set them up as shown here  The key points to remember are:  Ensure that text blocks and graphical elements are not moved away from their default position in the master template  When using additional text boxes or graphics, always align them to gridlines 14/11/2013 27  www.steria.no

  29. 29. Use of partner/client logotype on title slides  When including client or partner logotypes it is important to ensure that visual ownership clearly remains Steria’s  Client or partner logotypes must never replace our logotype 14/11/2013 29  www.steria.no
  30. 30. Use of partner/client logotype on text slides Client/partner logos on text and content slides can be placed in the top right underneath the ribbon graphic HOW TO DO IT  In PowerPoint 2010 go to View > Slide Master  Select the content slide, paste the partner logo and position it top right as shown here  The logo can then be copied from this position and pasted onto the other coloured master content slides 14/11/2013 30  www.steria.no
  31. 31. Be sure to represent client logos correctly  When using corporate logos other than our own, be considerate of any special needs and graphic standards that the client or partner may require (colour, placement, spacing)  Copying logos from web pages of the company often results in poor graphic quality which is not appropriate – it does not demonstrate respect for your client 14/11/2013 31  www.steria.no

Simply double-clikk on the image and then select Remove Background from the Image toolbar. 14/11/2013 35
  36. 36. Optimise your file for e-mail transfers Please remember that adding multiple images and illustrations increases file size. This may slow e-mail transfers, make it difficult to distribute your presentation and has significant impact on Steria Group IT costs. 14/11/2013 36  www.steria.no
  37. 37.

  38. 38. How to reduce your file size: Option 2 An alternative way to reduce the size of your PowerPoint files is to export all image slides from PowerPoint as a JPG and then re-import them  This is especially useful, when your presentation contains a lot of flowcharts, screen dumps etc.  Under the “File” menu select “Save As” and under the prompt select:  Save as type: JPEG 14/11/2013 38  www.steria.no
