Presentations Q&A: Using Clipart – Yes or No?

Question: Should clipart be used in modern presentations?

Answer: Clipart is still quite prevalent in slide presentations but a lot of it is perceived as cartoonish and unprofessional.

Many presentation experts believe that clipart should be banned from slides but you need to decide for yourself.

Ask yourself these three questions:

  • Will clipart look professional to your audience?
  • Is there a clipart image that sums up your idea perfectly?
  • Or is there an image or photograph that would work better?
