THOUGHTFUL DESIGN Principals of Design Only 5/6 lines per slide Short sentences Be careful how you use the design tools sometimes less is more!

21 Reading online Current research indicates that most people scan the page in an F pattern Is this true for you? "Understanding the F-Layout in Web Design - Tuts Web Design Article. "Web Design Tuts. Web. 27

Oct. 2015. 22 Reading Readers start at the top left of the page. Then they scan the top of the site (navigation, subscription, search, etc.)

Next they move down, reading the next full row of content... all the way to the sidebar. Last, surfers enter a "scanning pattern" once they hit the bulk of the site content. 23 How the eyes track

"Understanding the F-Layout in Web Design - Tuts Web Design Article. Web Design Tuts. Web. 27 Oct. 2015. 24 Reading online contd We still read right to left, top to bottom just as if we were reading a book, however our

attention drops off as we near the bottom of the page. Plan your design accordingly! 25 Implications for design Key point at the top of the page!

The rest of the page should be supporting points or the information can be in your notes. 26 Common slide In early summer of 1789, bread and other foods were scarce all over Paris.

Talk of revolution filled the air. At Versailles, representatives of all classes had been meeting since May to find solutions to the economic problems that troubled France. But in Paris, many poor citizens focused their anger toward the government on the Bastille, where they believed hundreds of French citizens had been unjustly imprisoned. To the common people of Paris, the Bastille symbolized the tyranny of the Absolute Monarchy in France. The Bastille was a huge prison fortress in Paris. Armed with axes, the crowd ran to the prison cells and freed the astonished inmates. The mob found only

seven prisoners in the entire fortress. July 14, 1789 marks the date of the storming of the Bastille and the beginning of the French Revolution. Great reading, you must have very good tracking skills. 27 Bread is scarce Revolution is the

solution Less talk more action! 28 JULY 14, 1789

29 Design tips 1. Create a Focal Point that leads the viewers eyes to the critical information. Pictures or graphics should lead to the text, not detract from it.

2. Use unified design elements for a professional look. Repeat colours and shapes, but use them sparingly 30 Fonts 1. Choose fonts appropriate for the details of

your presentation. 2. Fonts with lines at the end of the letters (Serif Fonts) are easier to read in a printed format than on a screen. (Like this) 3. Just because you like it, doesnt mean it will work for everyone. 31

Why you shouldnt.. Underline text. Its harder to read Wheres the hyperlink? Use all caps. Is it a title or are you yelling?

Overdue italics and bold. Whats really important? 32 33 34

Dont . Leave a sentence with just one word on the next line. Leave 2 spaces after punctuation, the extra space is distracting to the reader. Use a small font, size 24 is probably the smallest that can be easily read. 35

Transitions and Animations Transitions are from slide to slide Animations are within each slide Dont overdo them! Practice Colour

These slides have a theme that was downloaded from an external site Make sure there is sufficient contrast between the background colour and the text colour. Great advice on colour combinations can be found at this site

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE ALTERNATIVE PRESENTATION TOOLS 39 What is the focus of your presentation? Consider a presentation to be the multimedia version of your essay.

Knowing your thesis statement (purpose) will help you decide which tool is the most appropriate. 40 The Importance of Visuals You also need to have some idea of the proportions of your presentation that will

be visual (image or video) text, and/or audio as this will impact your decision. Haiku deck visual with some text Word text with some visual Serious or Not? The technology you use will contribute to the tone of your presentation. Make sure

its the appropriate contribution. Serious - PowerPoint Lighthearted - Powtoon Who is the Audience? A presentation for your peers might include different graphics or audio than one for your teachers.

Introduction and Conclusion The technology you choose should allow you up to 30 seconds for an introduction as well as up to 30 seconds for a conclusion. Presentation vs Publication

A presentation is designed to be shared with an audience one slide/screen/cartoon/ visual at a time. You control the flow of information. A publication is a single page/poster that gives the viewer all the information at the same time. The viewer controls the flow of information.
