Geometric PowerPoint Backgrounds. Well, what would you have called this collection. We started off with “different level cubes” and thought that in some ways it said too little, and in others it didn’t say enough. Then we moved onto “abstract backgrounds”, but if we went down that road we’d be calling everything abstract.
So, we settled on “Geometric PowerPoint Backgrounds”. Precise enough to describe the current crop of backgrounds, but generic enough to use again on something very different!
Naming convention aside, these really are high quality PowerPoint backgrounds. We went mad trying to vary the different elements, so there are:
different levels of reflectivity
surfaces that are darker (absorb less light) than others
a variety of colours, but not too many. Don’t want people getting dizzy.
different things being reflected
changing camera perspectives
If these backgrounds don’t make you happy, then you’re just a curmudgeon.
Yes, it’s that time of the week again: Fractal Friday. We have another 10 gorgeous fractal PowerPoint backgrounds for you to download and use how you wish (barring their republication on other websites, and their sale).
If you caught our earlier fractal background post, no doubt you’ve been waiting tirelessly by your computer for the past week, ready for the next instalment – and here it is!
We’ve had quite a few people asking how our designers are creating these fractals. I have to be honest and admit that we use expensive but old school software to get some fantastic results. And, while I’m in control of budgets, my designers will think themselves lucky that I forked out for this extravagant software. Not every designer is blessed with such a generous and thoughtful boss.
Stay tuned for more fractal backgrounds next Friday!
We’ve been thinking for a while about bringing in a new thing: Fractal Friday. Each Friday we will post a plethora of fractal backgrounds, all free for you to download. If we were a lazy bunch of ne’er do wells, I’d be tempted to question why we didn’t think of Fractal Friday before now. But the truth is that we have a long list of requested backgrounds that we are steadily working through (we’re always working, and we never sleep!), and we haven’t had time to even entertain the idea of fractals.
Until now, that is.
So, our proposed timetable is to publish backgrounds with a fractal bias every Friday. And they will be good, damn good. Just look at this instalment. How sexy are these backgrounds?
Because it’s possible that you might like to use them for other purposes than PowerPoint presentations, we’ve uploaded the images themselves. Usually we embed them in templates for you, but we couldn’t be bothered this time. Being artistic geniuses can be very tiring.
Here are 10 fractal backgrounds, and stay tuned foranother 10 next Friday. They look pretty dark in the thumbnails, but the larger images are a little lighter. Just click on an image to see what I mean. Right click and save the large image. You are not allowed to republish them on another website, however, or sell them.
You asked for it (well, some of you did), so here it is. The next set of Olympics related PowerPoint templates: Olympics Shooting PowerPoint Templates. We searched high and low (mostly low) for an example of an Olympic shooter, and eventually we found one. We then shoved it into the machine (our designers’ inbox) and cranked the handle. Out popped the templates you see above.
Get them while they’re hot!
Click on an image to open up the corresponding template in PowerPoint. You should then save it to your computer where you can amend it for your own presentations. What the heck – download them all. We don’t mind. There are only a measly six templates instead of our usual 12 or more, because there’s only so much you can do with a pink Olympics shooter.
As we promised in our previous abstract background post, here are some backgrounds that have gentle swirls and curves and that use gradual colour transitions. These are much more organic in shape, and just a little dark and brooding. Open them up in PowerPoint by clicking on their images and then save them to your computer. You can use them as templates on which to base your new presentations – which you can deliver with pizazz!
There are 7 backgrounds – freely downloadable – which should keep you going until our next backgrounds are out.
Here are four abstract PowerPoint backgrounds to get you started on the abstract track. You can open each template up in PowerPoint by clicking on the images above. Once opened, you can save it to your computer and amend it to your needs. Alternatively, right click on an image and select “save link as”, or “save target as” (depending on what browser you are using). If you add new slides to your presentation they will use the same background, too.
These backgrounds are characterised by sharp, straight lines that thrust the contrast of colours into the faces of your audience! We also have other abstract backgrounds in the pipeline, that use gentle swirls and curves and that use colour transitions that aren’t so… jarring, shall we say! So stay tuned for those. We should be able to get those out to you some time this week.
