After discussing the usage of fonts, let’s quickly discuss how to use colors properly, because that is also something I have been seeing as a problem in the future trainers.

Mistake: Combining colors badly.

Why is this a problem: Some of the information on your slides may not be easily seen or/and may be the slides just does not look good. You know… pink and yellow just don’t look right when used together…

Solution: If you are not a designer, go read a post we wrote about Adobe Color. This is the service you are looking for which will help you learn which colors you can use together.
