I’ve been creating royalty free stock illustrations for many years now, and I’m at the point now where I’ve found that it’s more fun to integrate my existing images into other projects rather than spend the time and make new content (such as I just did with my red SALE tag template). It keeps my mind fresh, and it breaks up the monotony of mindlessly creating new illustrations one after another.
I created a series of stock 3d renderings of simple wedding rings about eight years ago (gosh, has it really been that long?), and I thought that some of those images could work well as part of a presentation theme. My thinking is that the rings are a symbolic metaphor for weddings and marriage, which can be defined as a union of two individuals or entities.
This metaphor works pretty well in the business world, with companies merging and joining forces all the time – so I don’t really expect this to be a template for the traditional wedding industry only. Besides, I don’t think this image is delicate enough to be used in a traditional wedding sense. I’ve got a very masculine design style!
The silver metallic color scheme of this template gives it a pretty high-class feel, and it’s neutral enough that it won’t clash with any colorful graphics that you might import as part of your presentation content.
By the way, if you want to see an example of these metallic textures used with bright accent colors, do be sure to check out my Cloud Computing PPT.
If you are feeling adventurous, you could replace the white background on the interior slides with a light silver gradient – just to give it a little extra kick.
One last thing: I experimented with a bunch of different font styles with this template, and I found that ultra-light and thin fonts looked the best against the silver. I used Helvetica Nueue Ultra Light here, but you can use anything similar to achieve the same general look.
