« Simple & visual: Tales Of Mere Existence | Main | Business manga: presenting Daniel H. Pink's latest book »

I will give away my little secret here. When it comes to formatting text in a slide, I get ideas from movie posters. I go to the iTunes Theatrical Trailers section and I get inspired by all the movie posters. I mix large and small sizes to emphasise meaning, I colour words in orange or red (or what's appropriate), and I position words and lines so they emphasis a certain meaning. A sentence can consist of two lines, and I right justify them. The last words in each line has a different colour than the rest of the words. You can do a lot with this and play around to convey your message.
