Un-aligned text can create interest
A few weeks back I discussed the value of using text alignment to build a sense of organization and structure in your slides. But too much organization is repetitious and boring.
The technique I like to use is to build order first using alignment and consistency. Then, I intentionally break the pattern using one element that is obviously not part of the structure of the document or slide. The resulting break-out adds interest and excitement.
Try it. You’ll like it.
