PowerPoint is a proven communication tool used successfully by presenters in almost all industries. And while images are a great way to make your PowerPoint presentations memorable, you can rarely do without type altogether. So good type design is an essential element for presentation success. We give you 7 tips to make your text passages better.
This makes the type design the most important visual element in your entire presentation. The way you present your writing can determine the success or failure of your entire presentation. This includes, for example, the choice of fonts, colors and point sizes. With this in mind, here are 7 ways you can improve the typography of your PowerPoint presentation.
Do they make your writing big or better do not write
There are a few things that your Audience should not do during your presentation: talk, sleep or play with the cell phone. There will be some slides that your audience will need to read carefully, so make it easy for them. Never use a font size smaller than 12, and ideally use a font size between 16 and 18. If your audience doesn’t have to laboriously read your text, they’ll be better able to pay attention and fully absorb your message.
Headlines are designed to grab attention. But they can hardly do that if are hardly distinguishable from the rest of the text. While your body text should be 16-18 point (14 if you really have space issues), your headings should be 20-24 point.

Readability: pay attention to contrasts in the font design
Bullet points – tried and tested, but rather hackneyed
Bullet points serve their purpose. But in the meantime, this kind of presentation has also become a bit boring. Try to get a little more creative to give viewers a change of pace:
Why not color the bullet points in a different color than the text? This is a good way to draw the audience’s attention to the important text.
You could also make each bullet line a different color. This works especially well when bullet points are strategically distributed throughout the slides.
PowerPoint also offers a variety of preloaded icons and even imported graphics, so you can use different shapes for your bullets!
Use a consistent font design
For a successful PowerPoint presentation, many aspects must be considered. One of them is the font design. Even seemingly minor issues, such as font size or typeface, will determine whether you will be successful with your presentation.
