SLIDE VARIATIONS: 5 Examples

Slide Variations

Subtle changes to your slide designs can make a huge difference to the way your audience process your on-screen content and the extent to which your slide show complements your verbal presentation

Can You Spot The Differences?

As the old saying goes, “Large oaks from small acorns grow.”  In the same way that a tiny spark can cause a mighty flame, it’s possible that minor changes to your slide designs can make a significant difference to the way your slides are perceived by your audience.

As you look through the following examples, take a moment to examine each slide in order to identify the variations in design.  Whether it’s the color, size, shape or placement that changes, see if you can spot the differences, some being more subtle than others.

Variations can be used to draw attention towards or away from elements, emphasize key content, create a color scheme, create greater or lesser contrast, add interest to your slides or change the overall look and feel.

The best time to make changes to your slides is when you kick back and critique the draft slide show you’ve created.  As a general guide, the key question is, “How could this slide be better?”  When the answers come, that’s your cue to take action and make the changes.

You might be asking yourself, “Is it worth the extra effort?”  Well, if it can make a positive difference to the outcome of your presentation, improve the viewing experience and help your audience to recall key information after the slide show, then absolutely, yes it is.
