Create WordArt on PowerPoint

WordArt is a tool developed by Microsoft that became very popular thanks to MS Word. Some of you are too young to remember this, but the best part of doing schoolwork in Word was making the title with WordArt.

Why have boring and monotonous text if you could give your headlines more visual presence and special effects?

Why settle for just Microsoft Word?

Yes, I’m not kidding.

Give your slides a retro look and leave boring old work presentations behind.
