If you’ve been paying attention, you have probably noticed that my design style is a bit masculine and heavy. I use a lot of dark colors, cold materials (metals, plastics, etc) and it’s pretty rare for me to do anything with an organic theme. I thought it might be a good time to give it a try.
I had already created some stylized vector plant leaves from a project a few years back, so in the interest of time I thought that it would be nice to incorporate those into this Keynote template. It saved a lot of time, but when I was finished, I couldn’t help but laugh. “I did it again”, I thought. Even though this presentation template was supposed to be green and nature-oriented, I somehow turned it into something dark and manly. I don’t know – I guess that’s just my way of doing things!
The cover slide is where all the design is. The leaf illustrations are the primary element, and they have a bit of transparency added to them so that you can see through to the green gradient background. While this cover slide is visually rich, I purposefully left the interior slides clean and white (perhaps because I felt guilty about making the cover so dark).
One final note about this one – you’ll need Keynote 6.0 (or higher) to open and edit it.
