How do I attract people’s (or canines’) focus?
The next article is a PowerPoint tutorial that shows how to design stunning cover slides by with simple guidelines that are simple to follow.
A Best PowerPoint presentation design starts with the cover slide you choose to use. If you’re looking to amaze and delight viewers, the process all starts at this point. If you’re planning to create an PowerPoint presentation that’s a success it is essential to ensure that it begins with that slide. The cover slide is what sets the tone for your whole presentation and will allow you to make your presentation credible.
Packaging is the process utilized to cover, advertise and distinguish a particular product. It’s your PowerPoint presentations are the products, and your cover slide acts as the packaging. Its function is to cover, promote and differentiate your presentation. Keep in mind that PowerPoint presentations’ design begins with the cover slide. Your cover slide should be able to stand out in the crowd to grab the attention of viewers.
Capture your audience attention.
Designing a stunning cover and then displaying it when you introduce you or your topic will allow you to catch your audience’s attention. The good news is that this slide will demonstrate to your audience that have invested some effort into the appearance. If this slide is fantastic it will be expected to see even more amazing slides to come up in the near future.
According to me I see two options to make slides for cover: with photography and without. Let’s look at the first option first. We’ll cover the rest later. Before beginning the PowerPoint tutorial, ensure that you’ve got your slide sized to 12x 7.5.
First , you must find an image that represents the argument you want to prove.
PPT design begins with the following question What’s your presentation’s topic? What is it related to? Answer these questions, and then search for a beautiful illustration, picture or sketch that is related to the subject. You could be a salesperson or engineer, a musician or an spaceman, but it does not matter. Remember our SUCCESS rules? Make it clear and simple.
Keywords to search for. Use your mind. You can utilize Google, Bing or Yahoo! Images databases to search for stunning images. There are blogs to browse on your topic. You can also use this fantastic Flickr Search tool. Make sure you select quality photos that have a good resolution. Otherwise, the photo will look unprofessional and cheap. What’s the reason you should obtain an (good) photo? Because , once the audience have seen it and then their attention will turn immediately back to you since you have the information. If you include a lot of text on your slide, they’ll be reading the slide instead of listening. This is something you don’t want to happen.
It was Google images and entered “engineering drawing”. I selected one of the amazing options available
The second step is to add your presentation’s title.
You’ve inserted your image. It’s great, now ensure that you expand your images to cover the entire slide (just ensure that the image does not deform too the extent that it is). Let’s return at this “engineering drawing” picture I recently selected. I’ll have write down what this PPT presentation is about , don’t you think? I would not recommend putting the text directly on the image.
Although it’s accessible, it’s not simple to comprehend. It might even be the worst. Consider your audience Make him feel comfortable. If your information is clear and easy to access, your audience will feel confident in your PowerPoint presentation and will pay attention to what you say. Your PowerPoint title color may be selected in accordance with the photos (you’ll notice the fact that “power supply stuff” is brown, and is a component of the background image). Create a the line with a keyword. You can alter the the font size and style more easily. On this slide, you’ll find two boxes of text: “Engineering Topics” and “Power Supply Stuff”.
To add your presentation’s title There are two ways to do it:
The Skinny Bar
Skinny Bar is my favorite style since I concentrate on the background of my photography. Your photography should be noticeable in this style. Absolutely nothing else. The thin bar width is around 1/3 of PPT height. In terms of the design, you can choose between a rectangle or a round rectangle. Regarding the bar’s location in your cover slide I recommend asymmetry because it’s more interesting.
The Fat Bar
It’s not as important to focus on the photo, and more about whether your bar is transparent or not. It’s surprising that the fat bar is a bit fat and occupies about 50% of the PowerPoint size (from two thirds to half). I would recommend using the fat bar if you’ve got more text that you would like to put to the cover slide. For example, title of presentation or Business Unit Date, name, date etc.
