3 Easy Ideas to Improve Your PowerPoint Designs

Great PowerPoint designs are essential for presenters looking to get their message across. We’ve offered plenty of tips to help you improve your PowerPoint designs, and we have three more tips to share.

Try these ideas to enhance your PowerPoint slides:

1. The first slide needs to stand out

It’s the first slide of your PowerPoint that will lure your audience’s eyes to attention. You won’t make a good impression if the first thing they see is a cluttered slide with too many elements.

Instead, choose a clear title that perfectly expresses what your discussion is going to be about. Enhance with an image that is similarly cohesive to your content.

2. Use high-quality images

Speaking of images, don’t think you can just do a quick Google search and use the first thing you find. The images you use in your PowerPoint designs should be of great quality and look professional and polished.

Remember, your PowerPoint deck is representing your company and the products or services that you offer. Read up on how you can find great images online here.

3. Take the time to customize everything

PowerPoint is able to make designing slides easier with the help of standard templates and ready-to-use graphs and charts. But the problem with PowerPoint’s defaults is that they’ve been used to death.

Don’t worry—you don’t have to sacrifice the convenience of these one-click design tools. But you do have to take some time to customize the defaults you use.
