‘ black’ & ‘white’

1 ‘grey’

3 to 4 ‘blue’

1 ‘color’

Use same colors in entire presentation

black & white (or colors when printed in ‘grey’) type grey level No difference when printed type grey level

what’s the difference between these figures ? A A

… bad surprise when printed

fonts Fonts type Use ‘Georgia’, Arial’, ‘ Helvetica ’, ‘Veranda’ or ‘Calibri’ Use ‘Arial’ if lot of numbers Use ‘black’ as default & ‘ blue ’ for ‘level 1 titles’ Font size (standard) : max 20 & min 12 Try to avoid bold , italic & underline Bullets Avoid ‘black’ or ‘white’ bullets Different indentation levels = different bullets Be coherent ! Always use same approach for font colors, font size, bullets, etc. Always use same approach for Majuscules, i.e. Either Majuscule at beginning of list or no majuscule at beginning of list level 1 (size 18 / 20) level 2 (size 16 / 18) level 3 (size 14 / 16) level 4 (14) level 1 (size 18) level 2 (size 16) level 3 (size 14) level 1 (size 18) level 2 (size 16) level 3 (size 14) AVOID EXAMPLE

Use same line types in entire presentation

useful shapes text text text text     text text text text text text

how to resize a shape text text 1. Select shape 2. Resize shape with ‘yellow diamond’ 3. Find ‘right shape’

always align & ‘distribute’ shapes in a slide text text text text Not OK text text text text OK

pictures Using pictures is complex It’s difficult to find the ‘right’ picture Presentations with pictures take lot of time Pictures are only useful if you want to make a ‘show’ Most of the time, you just don’t need pictures for internal presentations but just in case… Don’t use pictures found on Internet (for professional use) Only use PowerPoint ‘Clip Arts’ (unless you can access specialized images database)

Using pictures is complex

It’s difficult to find the ‘right’ picture

Presentations with pictures take lot of time

Pictures are only useful if you want to make a ‘show’

Most of the time, you just don’t need pictures for internal presentations but just in case…

Don’t use pictures found on Internet (for professional use)

Only use PowerPoint ‘Clip Arts’ (unless you can access specialized images database)

But pictures are good for show !

If correctly chosen

Otherwise…

So think twice…

clip arts And just avoid ugly ‘Clip Arts’ !

why not to use animations ? Animations = lot of time unless good PowerPoint skills Animations = problems with mouse during presentation (Murphy’s law I) Animations = PC & mouse far from you during presentation (Murphy’s law II) Animations = ‘show’, not ‘facts’ Avoid animations when possible !

slide components Footer slide number Try to align ‘Title’ & ‘Body’ texts Always include ‘slide #’ & confidentiality level for internal ppt (exception : no slide # on ‘Title slides’)

respect ‘slide limits’ NO NO NO NO YES YES

avoid titles having more than 1 line because it’s difficult to read them & because it will break the ‘uniformity’ of your presentation

titles & sub-titles Sub-title = summary of slide in 1 sentence Only exception = titles + sub-titles (no majuscule for titles & Majuscule for sub-titles)

always use same font size & type for titles

slide title must reflect slide content ! Always check that slide title really reflects slide content !

make your ‘own’ body When you creare a new slide… Create your own ‘boby’ = ‘rectangle’ with following attibutes ‘ Colors & Lines‘ color = ‘NoFill’ line = ‘No line’ ‘ Text Box’ ‘ Text a nchor Point’ = Top ‘ Internal margins’ (left, right, top, bottom) = 0,1’ or 0,05’’ ‘ Word wrap text in Autoshape’ checked No other option ‘checked’ Adapt margins !
