Limited Design: Using Only Fonts and Icons

Here’s an example of a presentation I gave last Fall to colleagues within my library, updating them on various service and resource policy changes in effect for the semester. In place of images, I used various font sizes, colors and placements to add some visual interest to the primarily textual content I needed to present.

Feel free to adopt any of these techniques for your own presentations. One caveat – if you will be presenting on an unfamiliar computer, it is best to save your presentation as a PDF file. Fonts are not universal from computer to computer–exporting the presentation as a PDF preserves the original fonts. Adobe Acrobat also includes basic presentation show settings and controls and works great in most any presentation situation. Another advantage is that nearly all computers have some program that can view and display PDF files.

Enjoy!
