Applying Themes
and Styles
Chapter
8
Color is an important element in communication. Each color has an
inherent “personality” and can evoke emotion and action. Certain
colors also have been historically associated with certain products, industries,
and even messages. The colors you choose and the way you combine colors
can have an effect on your presentation and how your audience perceives it.
You want to ensure that your color choices are never arbitrary but, instead,
are well thought-out.
Fortunately, PowerPoint makes choosing and using color simple. If you’re not
particularly color or graphically savvy, you can rest assured that PowerPoint’s
predefined themes are well designed. If you’re feeling more creative, defining
your own colors is easy. And if you decide color isn’t enough, you also have
the ability to add textures and patterns to your background and graphic
elements. This chapter gives you the know-how to work with all three.
