Slide design: Design your slides with legible fonts and strong contrast to make your message clear
The font, colours and contrast you pick make your slides easier, or harder, to read.
Backgrounds: Dark backgrounds with light writing makes it easier to read in a darker room. Dark writing with a light background makes it easier to read in a light room. It makes the writing pop.
Fonts: San serif (Arial) is easier to read on a presentation, while serif (times new roman etc) is easier to read in books.
Colours: Make sure there is sufficient contrast between the background and the text. the more contrast the better.
Remember: less is more. Always think Billboard when designing slides, don’t think document!
