  • PPT principles introduced on this screen Colour Palette The PPT uses the bolder yellow colour as its foundation colour. This reflects that PPTs by their very nature should be distracting and attention-grabbing. It also acknowlededges that PPT will be regularly used in situations where Oxford Journals are tsslking to prospect audiences Where the logo is shown on yellow it should be presented in white. Front page 1 This is an optional page that acts to brand the document heavily when required. It is most useful in printed versions of the PPT or where a screen is required as a holding page whilst the presentation audience get settled.
