In PowerPoint, Fonts Matter

August 29, 2017

In PowerPoint, Fonts Matter

Observe people creating PowerPoint decks, and you can easily divide them all into two distinct groups, based on their usage of fonts. First are those who never change fonts, and use whatever PowerPoint defaults to. The second group comprises those who change fonts all the time! People in the former group are those who just need to finish creating their slide decks, or those who have strict corporate guidelines that prevent them from changing fonts. Everyone else is part of the second group.

Did you know there are two types of font users as far as PowerPoint presentations go? Learning how they use fonts can be surprising.
