Additionally, shades or glossy effects on text may not be needed for some spaced out pixel pitch LED screen. This is because many rental LED video walls may contain fewer pixels than a computer screen, and these effects will not be detailed.

When you design the content, make letters large, at least a fourth of the screen and use a sans serif font.

(3) Confuse the primary with the secondary: if the visual order of the content do not make any sense, the viwers will have more difficulty to understand the message.

If you want your viewers can catch the important point at the first time, make it the most prolific element on the slide. You can change it color, bold it font, or put it at the forefront of what you show. These ways are all turned out to be beneficial.
