An integral part of your presentation is a single, static slide that you will display while presenting. Your slide will also be included in the Scholars Week Virtual Gallery.
Think about how your slide will support the central metaphor or story that you are sharing. Keep it simple; one impactful image could suffice. Avoid writing out findings or arguments from your thesis.
If your slide includes text, your font choice and combinations will impact the mood.
Create contrast by combining a serif font with a sans serif font.
Vary font size for headlines, subtitles, and body text to create visual hierarchy (so your audience knows where to look)
Use two to three colors at most.
High contrast: Complementary colors are on opposite sides of the color wheel.
Accent: Analogous colors are adjacent on the color wheel.
