This part of Presentation Patterns and Antipatterns focuses on how to leverage slides to convey your presentation’s content effectively. Modern presentation tools come with a multitude of templates and wizards, useful as jumping-off points. But what’s easy is sometimes not what’s best. When we create patterns, we focus on effectiveness first, then reverse-engineer ways to use tools to produce the desired effect.
Slide Construction Patterns cover a host of antipatterns to help you avoid traps laid out by modern presentation tools. It also discusses a number of patterns (including hands-on techniques) to help you build better slides.
