Man, bad slide design is a plague upon the church. Ever since ministers discovered powerpoint and its more sophisticated cousins (Keynote!), we’ve jumped into the technology headlong, mostly without taking the time to learn what it means to really use presentation software well.
I’ve inflicted bad designs on the church many a time, but I’m trying to repent of those errors. I try to have some simple graphic work that frames or appropriately places focus on an area for a small amount of large font text. I think the images here make pretty decent slide backgrounds for that type of usage, whether it’s powerpoint, keynote, sliderocket, or some other software running the show.
