It’s always fun to go through my stock illustration archives just to see if there is anything I can do to resurrect some of my oldest and long-forgotten 3d renderings. The image I used for for this Keynote template just happens to be one of the first I created way back in 2006. Still looks somewhat modern, right? The gears around the globe could use some more detail, but remember that it was created when I was still pretty much a 3d modeling newb. Not bad for an amateur!
The cover slide of this presentation template is definitely the most interesting. It features a glossy transparent globe surrounded by orbiting gears, which makes it generic enough to use for any presentation relating to global business or industry.
The interior slides are all white, and I made sure to use some of the colors from the title page as much as I could in the accent areas. There’s lot’s of orange and gray in this one, which just so happens to be one of my favorite color combinations.
Other than that, I’m having fun in Keynote so far. It’s so much better than PowerPoint in terms of placing objects and getting things lined up and looking good. This is primarily because you can move things pixel by pixel in Keynote, and there are handy guidelines that appear automatically to show you when things have lined up perfectly. PowerPoint is the more powerful presentation tool by far, but it’s the little details such as these that make all the difference in the world.
