Design Tip of the Day

Standard

Don’t be a Comic Sans Criminal!  Instead of using a boring font in your slideshow that everyone has seen a million times, try a font that is more visual and matches the theme of your presentation.

DaFont.com is my favorite font website.  Please watch my brief Jing tutorial on how to find a font you want, how to save it onto your computer, and how to put that font into your Keynote presentation.

Now that you know about DaFont.com, please take the Comic Sans Pledge today!  A great rule of thumb for beginning presentation designers: if your audience knows the name of your font, it’s not necessarily a good thing.  Fonts to avoid are Times New Roman, Arial, Helvetica, Gill Sans (Keynote’s standard font), and Comic Sans unless they are appropriate for your presentation.  Put thought into your font, and always think like a designer.

PowerPoint users: email me!  I can talk you through the steps.
