The Design Qualities Make sure to utilize the principles to construct and organize the elements on each slide of your presentation. Work toward a unified flow with your presentation by repeating type fonts, colors and formats. Variety is good, yet a lack of continuity makes a presentation appear disjointed. Keep it clean. Avoid too many bells and whistles available in PowerPoint. Avoid using decorative type fonts for the body of your text. Decorative fonts work best for headlines exclusively or to highlight a small amount of information. Also, avoid light colors on a light back ground for information. Make sure the text and headlines are legible. Black and white is the best contrast for a large body of text.
Be Creative Every assignment is an opportunity to be creative and express your personal voice.
