9 PowerPoint templates that pack a punch

Designing a PowerPoint template isn’t what it used to be. Gone are the days of word art and drop shadows (thank goodness!). Today, these presentations are a sophisticated blend of photography, illustration, typography and Adobe suite integration designed to wow their targeted audience.

Whether boasting the benefits of a company, showing off a new app or talking to investors about revenue potential, PowerPoint templates are cleaning up their act with slick color schemes, innovative graphs and much more.
