How To Deliver a TED Talk: Secrets of the World’s Most Inspiring Presentations

How to Create Visuals That Inspire

  • Consider using no slides at all. Many successful TED Talks have none. Drawing a simple picture can be a good alternative to slides. You don’t need to be a great artist to pull this off. Remember that slides are for your audience. They are not gigantic crib notes for you. Don’t use clip art, builds, animation, or videos as they will detract from you. If you use a photo, there are many royalty-free images you can purchase from vendors Jeremey recommends. If you must use words, keep them big and few in number. Bullets are frowned upon. If you use a graphic design, include lots of white space, use the fewest elements possible, and limit your color palette to five or less. Use slides as places to take off and land, nothing more. Jeremey also provides specifics for fonts, resolution, placement, colors, and file types.
