Presentation Slide Guidelines

  • Don't make the lettering too small

Rule of thumb: 18 point is about as small as you want to go. 44 point is good for titles and 28 point is good for the main text.

  • Don't put too much on one slide

Rule of thumb: Six words per line and six lines per slide is a good guideline.

  • Restrict the number of fonts that you use

Rule of thumb: Restricting yourself to two, proportionately-spaced fonts plus careful use of bold and italics will cover most of your needs. Underlining is rarely necessary and the OHPs usually look better without it. A good combination is a sans-serif font (e.g. Arial, Univers, Verdana) for the titles and a serif font (e.g. Times New Roman, Century Schoolbook) for the text.

  • Restrict the number of colours that you use

Rule of thumb: Two colours will cover most of your needs.
