The Best Pitch Deck Tip Ever
Consumed => “10 tips on how to make slides that really communicate your idea” on TED Blog.
If you’re not a visual person (i.e., designer, design savvy, etc.) then the best rule of thumb is KISS. People who are not designers tend to over-think / over-design. If that’s you then be mindful of too many fonts, too many colors, trying to be “creative”, etc. Short, sweet and simple is your friend.
The pitch desk is your background vocalists. You don’t want it to outshine you. You don’t want it to distract from you. It should be there when you need it. But, in a way, forgettable.
Let me put it this way, if they remember your pitch deck – either good or bad – and not you and your presentation, then clearly you’ve done something wrong.
Repeat after me: Keep it simple stupid.
