Design Corner: Improving Information Design Through the Use of Tables

By now, you've learned of the value of using tables to present information in PowerPoint as well as the many ways you can customize tables to blend with the overall design of your presentation. Obviously, including a table in every slide can be monotonous, but the judicious use of tables can definitely enhance your presentation. For example, the bullet lists in the “Before” example convey the information adequately but duplicate it in certain places. Using the column and row format of a table, you can convey the same information without duplication and in a way that's easier for your audience to see the relationship between the table data. The “After” example eliminates these redundancies, and through the use of merged cells and fill colors, provides a more aesthetically appealing look as well.
