Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most popular Microsoft Office software. From school to business presentations, PowerPoint always helps you to put your ideas on slides. It's no wonder this is one of the most used software, it's very easy and simple to use, yet sometimes you might face some challenges, such as putting your logo on your presentation. A company logo in the corner of all PowerPoint slides in a presentation makes sure their viewers know which company this presentation comes from.
If you don't have a logo for your company or are about to rebrand, you can always try Logo Bot to create the best logo design. We also have included a free plan so you can try out and test it before you purchase your final logo design choice.
We'll guide you through how to get the best results for your Powerpoint Presentations below.
Why Brand the Presentation and How to Do That?
The strength of the brand is defined by its consistency, for example, customers must gain the same experience from communicating with the company at all points of contact. This is something to keep in mind when preparing a presentation for offline or online platforms: social media, exhibitions, webinars, and conferences.
The brand identity elements such as the logo, colours, and fonts will help you become recognized by the audience. Don’t be afraid of creating PowerPoint presentations with ready-made themes (templates). Just brand them to convey your unique message.
Attention to the details
Don't forget to use the company's logo design colours whenever it's possible (if it makes sense).
However, pay attention to the details we mention below:
Choose the background, text, and other colour shades on the slides (graphics, illustrations). They've got to be contrasting enough not to blend into a single spot.
The text should be fairly easy to read from far away. For instance, white font with a bright background is not a great combination since you won't be able to differentiate the text from the background.
Your task is not to distract the audience with the text, don't get too carried away with text since it's only there to pinpoint some information.
A lot of people feel annoyed that the texts in presentations are written in small font size. Focus mainly on the size of the screen and the room if the event takes place offline. The text should even be visible from really far away. One tip is to test it out from the back rows before you present.
There are three main types of fonts: serif, sans serif, and script.
For the digital sphere, sans serif fonts (Arial, Calibri, Helvetica, Lucida Sans, Tahoma, Verdana) are preferable as they are easily scaled and remain readable even in small resolution. Please, be cautious when using script fonts on your presentation as they can turn into scribbles very easily which don't make for the best readability.
