We need a PowerPoint (PPTX) template, which will be used for in-person education and outreach presentations.
SIMPLICITY. We are seeking a fresh, modern design, which should be minimalistic but professional. It should be suitable for an education/professional setting – not for sales.
THEME. Our education and outreach topics focus water resource and stormwater runoff issues, encouraging the user to adopt a new practice or behavior that will protect waterways. Water could be a useful thematic element in the design. Since we are seeking a simple, professional design, this may just take the form of a “fluid” aesthetic to the design. Please feel free to be creative with how to connect the design to our water outreach theme.
READABILITY. The primary purpose of the template is for in-person trainings and presentations, so the presentation should be clear and readable when projected.
SLIDES. We would like a title slide; an outline slide; section header slides; text and photo/graphic content slides with multiple sizes, column numbers, and shapes; and a closing slide. Content will include photos, so we have a preference to not utilize photos in the design of the presentation so as to avoid conflict.
FONTS. We would prefer the use of fonts that are available on modern Mac and Windows PC computers. We realize this limits the number of good fonts available, but this is important, since we often give presentations using others’ computers (and can't install fonts on them) .
ANIMATIONS. Animations should be simple (bullets or sections appearing) and easily modifiable.
LOGO. Our Carolina Clear logo is included, and has both graphic and text. It is okay if it is small or stylized on some slides, but we do want it on all slides. The Clemson Extension and Center for Watershed Excellence logos are also included and should be incorporated on the first and last slides.
COLORS. We suggest the use of colors from our Carolina Clear logo.
CUSTOMIZATION. The template must be fully customizable for us to modify as needed in the future
