PowerPoint Design Trend – White Text on Full Bleed Image

In PowerPoint Design Trend on June 18, 2014 at 5:10 pm

I often look to web graphic design trends for inspiration in presentation design.

One trend we’re experiencing in the wide world of the web is the use of white text over a full bleed image. This approach can give any presentation a simple, yet sophisticated look. And, creating a PowerPoint template to support consistent use of font types and text and image positioning is pretty easy.

A word of caution to lovers of this design: make sure the white text is sufficiently contrasted against the image for a projection environment. If there isn’t a strong contrast, you’ll need to use built-in PowerPoint tools to subtly enhance the contrast without compromising the elegant look.

To ensure sufficient contrast between text and the background image, add a subtle drop shadow to the text.

Even though we've added a subtle drop shadow to the text on this slide to bump up the contrast, this image may NOT be the best candidate for this type of slide design.
