Making ppt templates with logos of performance car logos is fun for me (I am a car guy after all), but I realize that the number of people who have a need for these kinds of themes is quite small. However, I know that there are business people out there who can use them – as a matter of fact, I am aware of several exotic car dealerships who are already using my Lamborghini ppt theme for their internal sales and marketing presentations. Small audiences no doubt, but I’m happy nonetheless that my templates are useful to people in niches of all types. Anyway, here are two more automotive and performance car templates with a very BMW-ish design language.
BMW M logo slide deck – one of my favorite ppt templates yet!
The first of my two BMW ppt templates for this post is based around the iconic BMW M logo, which I modeled in 3d not too long ago for some other projects. The rendering on the cover slide is one of the “junk” illustrations that I wasn’t too happy with, but I did think it could have some use as part of a presentation slide deck. So I gave it a shot and this is what I came up with.
Although the M logo is the predominant element in this ppt template, it’s well-suited for any kind of automotive performance business. Especially businesses who have ties to BMW in any shape or form. And even if it is a bit too heavily branded with BMW for your needs, you can delete the logo from the master slides to tone things down a bit.
3D BMW logo ppt template
I’ve been trying to find uses for the 3d BMW logos that I modeled and rendered a few years ago, and I finally decided to see if I could incorporate them into some ppt templates for a BMW theme. The slide deck you see below is a result of that experiment. It turned out ok, but once I finished it I realized that I probably should have included the BMW logo on the interior slides as well. After all, the image on the cover is very 3d and rich, while the rest of the slides are quite flat and simple. Having some 3d graphics on every slide would tie everything together much better IMHO.
Anyway, the cover slide is pretty much exactly what I imagined in my mind before starting this PowerPoint template, with lots of shiny metal with dark gray accents. I like metallic textures! I realize that’s not everyone’s cup of tea, so when I do this again I’m probably going to tone it down a bit so that everything isn’t so overpowering. BMW design is all about simplicity and clarity, so more white (with blue and gray as subtle accent colors) will probably look pretty good.
As mentioned above, the interior slides are pretty basic, and don’t contain any of the metallic textures from the cover slide. One slide features a simple dark gray block ideal for placing images or quotes, and the last slide contains a table with that same dark gray fill color with BMW blue as an accent. If you are in need of more complex diagrams and charts, check out the basic widescreen template I uploaded a few days ago. There are some circle graphs in that one which would work well in this template (as well as many of my other ppt templates).
Anyway, being in the business of ppt template creation can be fun at times, and this is a perfect example. Combining my hobbies (design + cars) keeps me motivated, even if I know that this particular design won’t be all that popular. Trust me – some days it’s difficult to muster the strength to build another generic slide decks, but mixing in some of my own interests is what keeps trashedgraphics.com alive.
