PowerPoint designs and Keynote themes

Free downloadable PowerPoint templates and Keynote themes

At Presentation Helper Towers we’ve been busy working over the summer to create some new and hopefully different PowerPoint slides.

For the first time we’ve also included Apple Keynote themes along with the PowerPoint slides.

Some of these Keynote themes are slightly different to the PowerPoint slides due to differences in the software.

Feel free to download and use them as they are, or just take out the bits you need, or just get ideas from them.

Because all these templates are editable we’ll add some hints on how to modify them. Remember you can use your own images in these as a background or even have no image in the background by adding a solid fill and sending it to the back.

1. atoms PowerPoint template
This template has a horizontal transparent band on which to put your information, resize the height and background image to suit your needs.

Template download page

2. old house template
Featuring multi-colour transparent bands. Move them around to create interesting effects on your slides.

3. dirty grunge slide
Give your slides a dirty grunge look with this template. This features two dirt backgrounds to lay your presentation on.

4. the river
The river slide has blue bands on the right to list important page information. You can swap the river image for your own background if you wish.

5. silver stars
Similar to the above this has a grey band on the right, this of course could be moved to the left.

6. old boat
The old boat has transparent fills to highlight text and information areas.

7. vector hills
As well as a nice vector background we’ve included clickable buttons to move your presentation backward and forward.

8. coloured leaves
These contain blocks of transparent colour to give your images a worn-out faded look.

9. orange sky
Why not put a transparent fill over the background to create interesting colours in this slide?

  11. Thanks! These are especially great. Young, modern, and refreshing and a good change to the dull and overused templates found on the big major websites. If you do ever make more templates, please make them like these, these are just too cool to abandon!

  46. uhm, excuse me, i downloaded the old house template but what happened is that the design is different when i applied it to my powerpoint slides. the old house was there but the colors were not. how come it’s like that?

    aiyah 20 Jul at 2:09 am
  47. cool!!

    sonali 24 Jul at 9:49 am
  48. As is the case with much of what is available, the designer is a bit too much into his own work. They are so proud they have to make sure everyone SEES it! Many of these backgrounds have way too much contrast, a few are fine but some are terrible. A background should be subtle and not compete with content. Sure, you can edit the picture or put a translucent box over it, but you are giving these to people who don’t know any better and will use them as is. If you use Keynote you should go to KeynoteThemePark.com
    They are not free, but then, they don’t look free.

  54. I often forget to post on the pages with the templates that I use. However, I would like to thank you for every thing that you have made available. I use your work for presentations to be used during church sermons and what you have put together is clear and beautiful.
    Thanks for everything and as they say in my church, God bless 🙂
