Vertical Lines and Masked AreasTemplate

This is a template developed for a recent project. It is a very visual template with rich, dark color scheme and great contrast of the vertical lines background to the horizontal lines of content. The same vertical line background is used on all master layouts. The primary design element used is adding masks of varying opacity and color over sections of the vertical line background to allow the content to stand out and be legible.

Another presentation template in the series of talks on Medication in today’s environment was this visually fun template. The template goals were lots of content area, clean lines and visually conveying the concept of growth of the overwhelming number of medication options. The final template featured all of the formatting master layouts and formatting options preset with trees to represent continuous growth and raining medication on the title slide.

Thinking About Medication PowerPoint Template

This PowerPoint template outline was for a presentation with a core message of the complexity of medication. The template featured a simple color scheme and central focus on the head filled with medication image. The same image was used on all other meeting materials to visually depict the message.

Is that a Liver? PowerPoint Template

As this client proves, medical slides do not need to be the standard boring blue background white and yellow text. The topic is Hepatitis liver function and the challenges in treatment. And we were free to explore visual cues in developing the PowerPoint template. The final approved template used a rock climber facing a challenge, a cliff that is actually the human liver, a hiking ridge made of viruses, a blood red title and a vast open mountainscape for the background.
Here is the theme graphic, title slide and general content master layouts.

Toy Story Template – and Lots of Master Layouts!

For Toy Story, I had lots of great character art to work with! The request for a white background and lots of character options made good use of the multiple master layouts in PowerPoint! I invested a full day in storyboarding the character combinations and slide combinations. The final template has 22 unique Master Layouts. Many of the layouts use the same placeholders and formatting, but different character art. The goal was to make it very easy to design a slide and reassign the Master Layout at any time to different characters without changing any of the slide content formatting.

TLC PPT w/ Video Slide Used By Microsoft

Seeing your work displayed to the world is always pretty great. In this case, it has also brought in hundreds of comments on a recent Facebook post by Microsoft.

From a recent project for Microsoft, here is one of the video “templates” I created to demonstrate the video capabilities of PPT 2010.

The Facebook post is here.

In reading the comments, I was surprised at the number of people requesting content-over-video be added as a feature. Maybe some additional advertising and market awareness campaigns are needed. Content-over-video is available in PPT 2010, works great, and the video being commented on was developed in PPT 2010.
