Here we summarise factors that should be considers in the visual design of a multimedia presentation:
- A multimedia presentation should have a consistent theme/style, it should not be disjointed and cluttered with multiple themes.
- The choice of theme/style depends on the styles and emotions of your audience.
Some Possible Themes:
+: interesting / entertaining -: must be consistent with the character's personality
+: simple, often informative
-: not as interesting
+: attractive, easy to animate
