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 and the ways you can customize tables to blend with your presentation's design. Obviously, including a table in every slide can be monotonous, but the judicious use of tables can enhance your presentation. For example, the bulleted lists in the “Before” example convey the information adequately but duplicate it in certain places. Using a table's column and row format, you can convey the same information without duplication and in a way that more clearly shows the data's relationships. The “After” example eliminates these redundancies, and by using fill colors and custom borders, it looks nicer, too.
