Today I will introduce some points when creating materials 💻
I often use tables when creating materials in PowerPoint or Google Slides, but if I don't pay attention to them, it gets messy.
Tables are a convenient format for organizing a lot of information, but I think it's also easy to get overwhelmed with information and not know what you want to say.
I have put together some simple tips that you can quickly learn, so I hope you find them helpful.
Erase vertical lines in table
By simplifying information such as designs and decorations that are unrelated to the information you want to convey, you will eliminate unnecessary visual information and make it easier to convey what you really want to convey.
The boundaries between the boxes on the table are quite a nuisance, so I recommend leaving the horizontal lines just enough to distinguish them from the table, but erasing the unnecessary vertical lines.
Make the line color lighter
For the same reason as removing vertical lines, unnecessary information is faded in color in order to make the information you originally want to convey stand out. If it's text or illustrations, we recommend reducing the size.
Incorporate nonverbal information
It is recommended to include information that can be conveyed other than text non-verbally. Don't you feel like you can recognize Facebook faster by looking at the icon than by reading the text? In addition to company and service logos, try using symbols and other materials to move away from materials full of text.
Make columns the same width
It's a matter of appearance, but I think it looks better if the column widths are the same. You can easily adjust the width by right-clicking, so please try it out.
Center aligned inside the cell
Isn't it difficult to read sentences with too many spaces between letters? For the same reason, center-aligning the text in a cell creates gaps on the top, bottom, left and right, making it easier to read. Here are some tips that you can easily imitate right away. I hope this is of some reference.
