Most presenters think they can design slides well because companies like Apple and Microsoft have made it super easy to make slides, but easy doesn’t mean audience members get it or enjoy it.
When have you ever enjoyed trying to read a slide while a speaker keeps talking? It’s just plain annoying.
No slide needs 50 words or 4 different things on it! If you’re presenting your presentation, rather than sending it, LESS IS MORE.
Your job is not to share as much content as is humanly possible in a certain amount of time. That’s no fun for the person trying to get help with their problem.
Here’s what you want to keep in mind as your foremost goal for your slides if you want to think like a graphic (or slide deck) designer.
P.S. If you’ve realized that you don’t have the skills to pull off a powerful slide deck, I can help you to simplify your message and your slides.
