  • Have no more than six lines of text per slide and not more than six words per line.
  • Replace words with images wherever possible.
  • Graphics are easier to read than tables of information.
  • Use light type and graphics on a dark background.
  • Don’t use borders or frame lines in your projected image.
  • Your company logo may be inserted only on the Introduction page of the presentation.
