Flying to Las Vegas today to coordinate the presentation graphics for a show. In the spirit of Vegas, here is a previous show’s template I developed that was in Las Vegas, with a visual Las Vegas Blvd/Strip theme.

From the top:
1. Content
2. Title
3. Full Frame Content (no logo or title area graphics)
4. Specialty slide for section dividers
5. Theme graphic (no text)

Trump Did Not Say “You’re Fired!” (Yeah)

One of the Trump University groups needed a new template to consolidate their presentations onto for a consistent and professional look. The entire project went great, although I kept hearing the famous ‘You’re Fired’ running through my head…

The final template that was approved focused on rich-elegant-professional look. Here is the Title and Content slide layouts from the template:

ThunderCats – The Template!

Always fun to work on projects that allow me to creative license to create something super dynamic. One such project was a PowerPoint template for the upcoming ThunderCats movie.

My first stop was lots of research to familiarize myself with this cartoon series I overlooked in the 80’s. I also watched the trailer for the upcoming movie and reviewed lots of the movie release info. From all this I identified the primary characters – logo – color pallet – and theme. Then I pulled in a number of images and started developing the basis for the template backgrounds in Photoshop. After a number of revisions and input from client the background art was imported into PowerPoint 2007 and all template options set. Here is the final result.

1. Opening Theme Graphic Slide
2. Title Slide
3. Content Slide

WWE Template

Sometimes a template just needs some high energy visuals. That was pretty much my direction for a project for the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) – “it needs to be great and full of energy!”

I took that direction, the official logo, some online research on (… have not followed professional wrestling a lot) and the final result was this template.

Mad Ad Live Template

Mad Ad Live is not the conventional advertising company and they required a PowerPoint template that visually conveyed their own style of sophisticated but ready to break the traditional rules.

Toy Story – The Template!

Sometimes work is just fun! Who could have a bad day when surrounded by Woody, Buzz, and the whole gang from Toy Story. Animated properties are great projects because they come with great visual assets that are all high quality and professionally developed. For this marketing presentation I developed the backgrounds from assets (Hint: the clouds are Andy’s wallpaper in his bedroom) and then had lots of fun playing with all the toys making them fit without hindering the content area.

The full template was developed with 4 master slides:
1. Theme graphic
2. Title slide
3. Content slide
4. Full Frame slide

Higher Education Presentation

This project was for a university program. They needed a template that integrated their school colors, but was lively-energetic-modern-cool. That was the direction provided and from there I was able to go in any direction. I developed 5 concepts and this was the one selected.

The template also used a custom font, which was installed on all presentation computers vs. embedding in the presentation. It featured 3 master slides:
1. Title slide
2. Content slide
3. Full Frame slide

The full frame layout is unique in that generally this style master slide removes the title bar to allow room for images/charts that need the full frame. In this template the title are is actually defined by the absence of the content area. So the Full Frame slide has the content area extended, creating a full canvas for content.

Of course there is a lot of competing visuals with a template like this. The background is full of contrasting, dominant shapes. It has a definite flow that draws the eye across the slide (from left-right). Lots of small text could easily become lost. And this would not be first choice for “standard” corporate template.

For this project I was provided the full (raw) presentation before any design work began and was able see the type of content. Because the content was large, minimal and to-the-point (eg. no inserted 200 cell excel charts or 20 bulleted lines) I was able to go with a more dominant and visual template design.

Here are few slides from the presentation:

Secret Saturdays Template

If you have boy, age 6-12, you a probably familiar with Secret Saturdays. This is a new cartoon series on Cartoon Network and with my 3 girls I was forced to enjoy some research watching several episodes to get in touch with my inner adventurous boy before developing this marketing template.

Working with entertainment properties, especially animated properties, is great. They have all the visual assets needed. And they are all high-res and layered (so no background).

For this project I assembled all of the characters into good and bad. Then selected the most vertical poses and went to work in Photoshop to create my layouts. The key characters (the good guys) are on the left, remain a constant throughout all master slides and positioned just far enough off the slides to not interfer with the content area. The background is a great line drawing the characters overlayed on the primary background color (pulled from the style sheet). And there are 4 master slides:
1. Theme (used at beginning and end of presentations)
2. Title slide
3. Content slide
4. Full Frame slide

Definitely not your standard corporate template – and I bet these presentations are more fun to sit through!

Another Template

Here is the title slide from a recent PowerPoint template project. This one was great, because after it was approved the same design was then applied to other departments/divisions each disquinshed by having their own color scheme (eg. blue, tan, yellow tinting vs. the green tinting in this one).

For the project I was supplied with some great Disney art elements such as the Disney logo and the stars which I turned into a star trail that framed the text area and added a feeling of motion.

Hansen Communication Template

This is a really great PR oriented company that I am very happy to work with as a part of their extended team. They recently needed a fresh look for a number of internally created presentations so I developed this PowerPoint template.

Note: The 3rd slide is what I call the “Full Frame” master slide. This is closely coordinated with the standard content master, but has no title bar area and is for slides that have large, full frame, images or charts.
