Now that we've covered all the best premium and free templates available, let's go over some presentation designing tips that can help you take your presentations to the next level.

5 Quick Tips For Better Presentation Slide and Background Designs in 2022

While using a premium or free template to start your presentation is sure to help you create a more appealing presentation, you still need to know how to use the templates. To make the best presentation you can make, edit the templates further. 

Below are five tips that can help you get the most of any type of any presentation template you download:

1. Align All Your Objects

Having all your objects in line with each other on your slides makes your overall presentation look well put together. This will help give your audience a clearer picture of what you're trying to present. Select all the objects on a slide and choose the Alignment Type option in the Arrange options bar to align all your objects.

2. Keep the Slides Simple

While the premium and free templates have high-quality stunning designs with lots of graphics, images, graphs, and text, it's often best to keep your slides simple. Each slide should be easily digestible by your audience. Avoid overcrowding your slides. When adding elements to your slides make sure they're absolutely necessary.

Norrow, a premium template from Envato Elements, features a very simple design on its slides.

3. Limit Text and Bullet Points

Having line after line of text and bullet point after bullet point will undoubtedly bore your audience. To give more detail per each slide, create a separate document and give this to your audience during the presentation. The slides should just contain short and concise notes to trigger different talking points.

The premium WinWard presentation features a modern and clean design with minimal text and bullet points

4. Limit the Fonts Used

Often templates contain slides that have a variety of fonts used. Keep your presentations to three fonts max, one main font and two sub fonts. Including too many fonts will make your presentation seem inconsistent. 

Also, use fonts that can easily be read. If your audience can't read the text on your slides, then your presentation is doomed from the start.

5. Use High-Quality Photos and Graphics

Nothing looks more amateur than having low-quality visuals. Only include images and graphics with quality to enhance your presentation. Using high-quality visuals has a subconscious effect on your audience and makes them take your presentation more seriously.
