We learn best by examples. And the better the example, the better the results.
That’s why its a pleasure to point you to a new group of PowerPoint examples that are stunning, inventive, evocative… simply beautiful. Nice enough if it stops there, but each and every one of these examples includes very detailed instructions on how you can reconstruct the design, and learn how to apply the technique to your own work. Animation for graphics and text, static text effects, photographic effects, new background techniques, Smart Art and transition effects… this is a holiday present come early for PowerPoint users.
And they’re free! Get them here.
Here’s a small sample, which of course does not include the amazing animated designs.
And in case you’re wondering, this is the work of PowerPoint MVP Julie Terberg of Terberg Design. Julie has done some amazing work for all you PowerPoint customers to benefit from and enjoy. Do let us know what you think!
Note: Effects and styles used in these examples do require Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 for editing.

Wow! That's all I can say. They are amazing. And the complete instructions! I don't think anything of this quality has ever been released with instructions. I am in awe.
The only way you can download these seems to be if you install IE on your computer. Won't work with newest versions of Chrome or FF or Safari. :(
These are awesome... Downloading was a royal pain though. Would have been nice to have one simple file to download rather than:
- Having it fail to download in Firefox, which required opening IE and re-navigating to the webpage.
- Having to install an Office-specific ActiveX control then run it to see whether my Office install was genuine.
- Having to download each of the 8 files individually. Seriously?
Yes, Laura and Wayne, as far as I know IE is required to work with the Office Online content. Office ownership is required to access this content and an ActiveX control is downloaded to manage that confirmation and handle the download. Unfortunately Firefox and Chrome don't support ActiveX so they can't be used in this process. I'll send the feedback to the responsible parties about getting the whole thing in one download though. That sounds like a no-brainer to me. Thanks. And a shout out and finger point at Wayne who is an ex-PPT developer and author of "Advanced Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007." An article, interview, and links to the book is at: talk.presentationsroundtable.com/.../advanced-authors-write-advanced-books.aspx Cheers,
i definately agree with you, many times, picture can explain better than what words able to.. thanks ric !
The IETab Firefox plug in can help alleviate this issue. I configure it to default to IE for rendering any download or template URL at MS
