Making Better Slide Designs for Block Quotes and Pull Quotes

3 Apr

I’ve run across two pretty decent articles on making better pull quotes which I will recommend:
1) Block Quotes and Pull Quotes Best Practices at Smashing Magazine.
2) Pullquote Design Showcase at Smily Cat Design.

Note: the intent is not to read these articles word for word, but scan for a design you like.

Short Classroom Activity: Pick your favorite 2 or 3 pull quote examples from the each article.

Optional Classroom Activity: Which quote example do you like best from Slide:ology (p. 109, p.140, p, 190, p. 224-225, p.242) Unfortunately, none of them use a script based font.

Also remember to check out color, typography, font size, and background as methods to improve your slide design.
