PowerPoint Conventions

In class, we discussed what a successful PowerPoint should look like. Here is what we came up with:

Engaging Visuals

  • transitions
  • relevant, varied, interesting
  • animation and dynamics
  • content is not overshadowed by effects


  • large, legible font
  • contrast against background color
  • font system (headings, subheadings)


  • clear audible voice
  • inflection, eye contact
  • work from script or outline
