Beautiful Type for Presentation Design

Thursday, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Good typography can make or break any design effort, including presentation design. Successful presentations rely on great type to help convey information to an audience.

It is possible to take control over type in PowerPoint. In this session you’ll learn how to go beyond the default settings—and beyond boring Arial or Calibri fonts—to create beautiful type in your presentations. We’ll cover:

  • What fonts work best for presentations? What fonts should you avoid?
  • How to set up new Theme fonts and how to embed fonts for sharing files
  • Guidance for presentation text, including sizes, styles, capitalization, numerals, etc.
  • Tips for custom formatting (yes, you can do things like kerning and leading in PowerPoint)
