The space allocated to the slide title in a PowerPoint template is constantly under threat:
- Corporate graphics eating up valuable screen real estate (earlier post)
- Huge and bold fonts (earlier post)
Please give the title some space:
- It is virtually impossible to win the battle against dense bullet point charts in big corporates. However, giving people some space to write the conclusion in the title of the chart might be one of the easiest ways to overcome this problem: read the title, ignore the chart content. A similar effect to how Twitter is educating people to write more concise email subject lines.
- I find a title that runs on 2 lines hard to read: if you do not give people space they will simply add a line, and maybe even another one.
