This image that I saw on Twitter has composition problems that you often see in presentation slides:

  • The text in the box does not have enough breathing space,
  • The quotation marks disturb the balance and alignment of the text box
  • The line breaks are not placed carefully enough, breaking apart words that belong together.

I tried to come up with an alternative design in SlideMagic (which does not support the giant quotation marks [yet]). You clone these two slides to your own SlideMagic account here and use them in your presentations if you want. Image taken from WikiPedia.
