Learn how to focus on design tools to bring attention to text and images to convey a message.
- [Instructor] My name is Jess Stratton,…and welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…We spent a lot of time teaching you…how to use technical aspects of PowerPoint,…such as where to find things on the ribbon,…but we also need to spend some time…focusing on design instruction.…This week, I wanted to talk about the two main items…that you can incorporate into your slides,…and how to bring focus to each of them.…Those are text and images.…The way you use the two together…should work well to convey your powerful message.…I do spend a lot of time telling you how to access…certain features of PowerPoint and what they do,…but this week, I want to show you the why.…
Why these tools are here in the first place,…and how you can use them to do better design.…Let's take a look at these two slides that I've created.…For the Landon Hotel, our fictional company,…this is a slide that we could use as an advertisement.…Now, the word relax is clear and easy to read here,…but this can be much improved.…Look at this slide.…Notice how your eye is instantly drawn to the word relax,…
