Each of us at least once came across the fact that when viewing a presentation, we wanted to close the slideshow after the first two slides. Most of the presentations are boring and tiresome.
If you want to create a presentation of your idea, advertising offer, or technology, you need to figure out how to present the information so that the audience will be interested.
Not everyone can boast of the skill of creating an engaging and intriguing presentation. You don’t need to be a professional designer to get the result you want. The main thing is to study the main stages.
In this article, we’ll show you how to make the process easier and share tips for creating an immersive slideshow.
Insert quality images
If your goal is to introduce a new product or recommend your products to new customers, then you inevitably need to use high-quality photographs of your products. For example, you want to send out a presentation to potential clients about outdoor bar furniture Dubai. Owners of cafes and restaurants will become your clients. With the help of photographs, you can visually show your products so that customers do not have any doubts about the quality of the goods.
If you offer technology, use high-quality stock images to validate the information. Do not use images that are not credible.
Photos are better perceived and remembered than textual information. It’s better to show it once than to talk about the superiority of your products for 10 minutes. The quality of the images should be high. No one will find your presentation convincing if you show blurry, poor-quality images.
Choose a vibrant color palette
A good presentation is characterized by a discreet color palette. It is best for all slides to have a consistent color palette. This way, your slideshow will look like a high-quality product.
To achieve a good result, you should opt for two primary colors. One color will represent the background of the slide, and the other will focus on the text information. These two colors must contrast for the text to be clear and readable. Remember that the color should attract, not distract from the specified information.
Choose basic fonts
Choosing the right basic fonts will help your presentation look aesthetically pleasing and elegant. The main task that the selected font should perform is to make a text readable. It depends on the extent to which viewers can read the information and understand what you want to tell them.
When we talked about the color palette, we paid attention to the contrast. In the case of type, the main thing is to achieve uniformity. It is best to choose two types of font – one for headings and one for body text.
To emphasize the headline, you can use a serif font. This way, you will be able to divide the information into blocks so that the audience understands your concept. The main text font should be simple and versatile.
Application of icons
You can use a variety of icons to spice up your slides. In some cases, they can help eliminate text and save space. Thus, you get a more interesting and varied composition instead of dry text.
Icons serve to improve the perception of information. Their advantage is that they emphasize key points without words. You can use icons in the same style to make the project look consistent.
Do the same alignment
Viewers should experience positive emotions while watching the presentation. This can be difficult to achieve if each slide looks different. In this regard, you need to align the elements on each slide, make the same indents and make the size of the same type of elements the same.
Don’t try to do it yourself. For this task, there are special tools that can accurately align all the elements.
Making a presentation can be a fun experience. By following the aforementioned tips, you can create a stunning slideshow that will engage your target audience.
