Using different types of text and font can make all the difference in making your slides look amazing and engaging rather than dull and boring.

Take a look at these 10 tips to use text more creatively

Let us know what you think and share some examples of your excellent work :)

  • Love these techniques. I think as HR and L&D professionals, we should challenge and shake up the whole world of Powerpoint presentations in our organisations. The least we can do, I think, is for us all to lead the way in the presentations we create by having these types of creative approaches in our presentation material design. 

    Here's one I did in a presentation. A simple stock image, with some text overwritten in Powerpoint. Would love to see some more examples too.
