I chose to make my slide have a blue background, with yellow font. The blue and yellow created a good contrast, similarly to the IKEA sign. I also thought the way the background design bled off the edge looked good. II also kept the slide very balanced by having text on each side. I also put the text next to the same color of the edge design on both sides. I wanted to keep it simple, and not make a super complex background, because although it might catch the eye, it would take away from the message. Also, my slide still has bright colors and is easy to read, which will make people want to view it.
