5 essentials to keep in mind while creating visuals

  • Simplify and do not complicate your designs. Remove unnecessary footnotes and chart sources.
  • Ensure your information presented on screen or in your presentation is legible to the people sitting furthest away from you.
  • Do not use colour for decorative purposes as it can distract the reader from your informative content. Use colour to draw attention to specific points.
  • Do not over do the special effects and animations as they can take away from the content. Instead let the information speak for itself.
  • Insert images, videos and graphics keeping in mind the time as sometimes videos can be time consuming and you have to finish presenting on time.
