We provide access to a great modern catalog, with flat designs and wide screen layouts (16:9). It is a subscription based model, where subscribers easily download several templates to create custom, highly attractive PowerPoint presentations. Our PowerPoint Slides are entirely created from PowerPoint shapes (vector graphics). Users can edit every property (size, color, effects, etc.) and graphics will not lose quality.

Such presentations require less storage space for easy sharing. Graphics can be ported to users’ corporate identity templates or adapted to their marketing branding requirements. Editing our templates with proprietary content is easy and straightforward — users will fill in the blanks with their message, saving time, and achieving really outstanding results. Our full time designers and content authoring team is generating constant trending templates, keeping our users up to date in the most engaging designs. We make it easy to move from PowerPoint standard (and repeated) SmartArt + Clipart, to a new breed of smartly designed templates & diagrams focused on professional content. Users will benefit themselves on the appropriate use of presenting best just with the transcription of their message into our designs.
