 LAYOUT

  • Be consistent in layout from slide to slide.
  • Position content (especially titles) at top of slide.
  • Leave a margin all around.

 COLOR

  • Use color to add emphasis, isolate specific data or to differentiate among multiple plots on a graph.
  • Background color can be used to group slides with a common theme.

USING THE PROJECTOR
