What’s Hot

Content as Imagery and Graphics

Using content as imagery creates an eye-catching display of information without clutter.  With this trend, keep the background simple and use a striking font.

Full Slide Imagery 

Full slide imagery can provoke emotion. Use high-quality images that relate to your content. And don’t be afraid to add some type, but don’t overdo it.

What’s Not

Ribbons

A ribbon design in a presentation is unoriginal and overused. Try to avoid this trend with any design project.

Content Overload 

With too much text and content, the presenter will lose the audience’s attention. They’ll be too busy trying to understand the slides, that they’ll lose touch to what the presenter is saying.
