Presentation Templates

I want to share a great source of presentation templates, Slides Carnival. The website provides free PowerPoint and Google Slides themes for your presentations. You can search the themes by color or by categories such as playful, inspirational, creative, or formal.

The templates are free to use with a Creative Commons License and created by Jimena, a designer living in Spain.

Some of my favorites templates so far include:

The website also has presentation design tips. If you need help finding images for your presentation, check out my previous finding images post.

It is always good to have a backup plan if you have technical difficulties with your presentation slides. In graduate school, I attended a training about what to do if technology doesn’t work. As luck would have it, the campus network was down during the presentation and the speaker didn’t have a backup plan. In contrast, I attended a recent presentation online at my campus’ professional activity days and when the speaker’s slides didn’t work, she didn’t miss a beat and worked through the problem by paraphrasing her slides and asking participants to respond to questions in the chat. It is always good to have a backup plan!
