Rethinking the Design of Presentation Slides: A Case for Sentence Headlines and Visual Evidence
For every slide, but the title slide, use a sentence headline that states the slide’s main assertion; left justify the headline in the slide’s upper left corner.
In the body of each slide, present supporting evidence in a visual way—with images, graphs, or visual arrangements of text (such as a table or text blocks connected by arrows).
Avoid bulleted lists because such lists do not show the connections among the listed items.
Limit the number of slides so that at least 1 minute can be spent on each slide (preferably more time in a longer presentation such as an hour seminar).
Use a sans serif typeface such as Arial (in rooms that seat more than 20 people, boldface that text).
On a typical slide, use 28 point type for the headline and 18–24 point type for the body text (larger type is appropriate for the title on the title slide).
Avoid setting text in all capital letters.
Keep blocks of text, including headlines, to one or two lines.
Keep lists to two, three, or four items.
Be generous with white space, but give preference to internal white space between text blocks and graphic elements within the slide, as opposed to border white space on the slide’s edges (when projected, the white space on the border is often not as noticeable).
On the title slide, include an image that orients the audience to the talk’s subject or purpose.
On the mapping slide, include images that serve as mnemonics for the talk’s sections.
End with the conclusion slide because that slide is the most important slide of the presentation.
Compared with the traditional design for slides, the alternative design offers three main advantages at presenting technical information.

How to Create an Assertion- Evidence Presentation
Technical professionals—engineers, scientists, researchers—are regularly called upon to give presentations that will help a company sell a new product to a client, get to approval for a project from upper management, or obtain grant money to fund research. To do this effectively, the presentation must be engaging and clearly state the presenter’s goals while providing clear evidence to support it.

Assertion-Evidence presentations aim to do just that. Assertion-Evidence is a style of presentation in which a sentence headline states the main message of the slide—this is the “assertion” part. The assertion is then supported with visual evidence—a photograph, chart, diagram, or video clip. Bulleted lists have no place in this style of presentation. An example of this style is shown below in Figure 1.
