3. Use Light and Dark Slides

Most premium templates come with a light and dark background option. Both themes have their benefits, and you don't have to pick one over the other.

A dark theme is great for large screen presentations as it minimizes glare and is more readable. A light theme is a better option for printing your slides as handouts. You can save ink with a lighter background. 

4. Use Animations and Transitions Wisely

Add simple movements to your slides with animation and transitions. Keep it at a minimum, as too much of it can get distracting. 

Check out these tutorials to learn more about animation and transitions for PPT: 

5. Use Cartoon Illustrations
