Does your PowerPoint presentation need a makeover?

PowerPoint gives you many opportunities to strengthen your brand and support your messages with visuals

 

At BGRAPHIC we make sure that it is easy for you to convey your messages in a visually pleasing way – even when you are on a tight deadline.

Here are our five best tips on how you get an appealing and well-functioning PowerPoint presentation:

1 : Have a PowerPoint template professionally designed

The best basis for effective PowerPoint presentations is a professionally designed template with the corporate visual identity, colour scheme and typography tailored to PowerPoint and included in all slides. It is possible to get very simple templates, where you fill in all content from presentation to presentation or you can have more complex templates with special slides designed to support important themes or messages in your communication.

It is important that your templates are well-functioning tools for your purposes. A good template is unique to your company and covers your needs for communicating with various target groups and stakeholders.

2 : Support your messages with infographics and professional images

A professionally designed infographic, illustration or a great photo can be a powerful tool when communicating your messages. It is even possible to design PowerPoint templates in ways that ensure that tables, diagrams and other information from Excel always is displayed with correct colours and typography.

For other types of infographics with complex messages, such as maps and descriptions of processes or services, it will be most beneficial for you to have these designed professionally, so your information and messages are presented in a visually striking way. Design and infographics must support your identity and brand and at the same time make it possible to use the illustrations across your platforms, programs, website and especially social media. An image library with professional and relevant photos will also be a great help in your daily work.

3 : Use animation and video for a more dynamic presentation

PowerPoint includes a range of opportunities for creating animations, which can help create a more dynamic presentation. From the simple, stepwise revealing of text on the same slide to more complex animations and small film sequences. These naturally require more preparation and often professional help. Video presentations of the company, products, processes etc. can be used by all employees in your company and act as a great ice-breaker in presentations, introducing the company or subject, while you get a sense of your audience.

4 : Break the rhythm

During long presentations it is a great idea to insert short breaks with full-slide photos, quotes or questions for the audience to reflect upon because they give the audience a more varied experience – and you have a break. Ideally, the PowerPoint template should include different types of breaker slides, making it easy for you to insert such breaks with relevant content.

5 : It is time to switch from 4:3 aspect ratio to 16:9

16:9 is the new standard size for PowerPoint presentations. The format fits large, wide-screen televisions and new projectors. If you still use PowerPoint presentation templates in 4:3, it is time to have a new template designed, because you cannot simply convert from one aspect ratio to the other without the content being jumbled around or stretched out of proportions.
