We need a PowerPoint (PPTX) template, which will be used for eLearning and some in-person content delivery. There will be various slide types required (as noted below) in two color varieties.
SIMPLICITY. We are seeking a fresh, modern design, which should be minimalistic but professional. It should be suitable for an academic/professional setting.
THEME. Our education topics to be delivered by PowerPoint are on 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 education theme.
FLEXIBILITY. We will use the template to create HTML5-compatible eLearning content, which will be viewed both on computers and mobile devices (including iPad). We also would like to use the template for in-person trainings in addition to eLearning courses. Some of the same content will be used in both settings, so the design should look good on-screen and 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.
COLOR. Preferred colors include blue and green (as in the logo). We would like two color-palette versions of the template, perhaps one primarily blue and one primarily green. Since the PPT will be viewed primarily on computer screen, a light background is desirable.
NAVIGATION. Each slide should have navigation buttons for forward, back, home, and help.
PROGRESS. There should be a progress indicator, which is customizable with major topic headings. These headings could be modified (by color, perhaps) to show which topics have been covered at that point in the presentation. These headings should also be able to be setup as links to the appropriate slide in the presentation.
LOGO. Our logo is included, and has both graphic and text. The graphic/text version will be one of two logos on the title slide. The other slides will only have our logo. It is okay if it is small or stylized on some slides, but we do want it on all slides. A graphic-only version of the logo is included as well for optional design purposes.
CUSTOMIZATION. The template must be fully customizable for us to modify as needed in the future.
