I offered to do a quick slide polish on a deck of a long-standing client who gave the SlideMagic template store a go for a business plan. My objective was to learn how the slide templates are used “in the wild”. The results were encouraging, here are a few examples where I had to step in:
Set the exact accent color that matches the company logo
Put the occasional rogue bullet chart into a proper 3, 4, 5, or 6 box slide template
Move slide content a bit so they fit exactly in the same frame on each page
Reduce font sizes a bit here and there to give text a bit more space to breathe in busy tables
These were slides in a business plan, not a TED talk, and exactly the sort of every day presentation they were intended for.
