Building Design Team Approved Presentations

Throughout the last month I’ve been working on creating an updated presentation template for the Fedora community to use. With Flock coming up quickly, there’s no better time to give these new templates a shot as a vehicle to present your talks!

I’ve made these templates available on three different platforms; LibreOffice Impress, reveal.js/slides.redhat, and GoogleSlides. While any of these three ways to build your slides are perfectly usable, I want to point out a few differences between the three.

  1. LibreOffice slides have SVG graphic elements, so all of the visuals will look very clear, crisp, and professional during a presentation! The only *very minor* limitation is that in using SVGs, the subtle dark blue to light blue gradient that I designed (and that is present in the other two forms) is not present here. My option with LibreOffice was to either keep the gradients but have the visuals be PNG (which resulted in a blurry appearance when enlarged) or to sacrifice the gradient but keep the quality at the high level provided with an SVG. I opted for quality over gradient use πŸ™‚
  2. GoogleSlides… User friendly and accessible…. and apparently not accepting of SVG graphics. So this is in fact an option, but I would probably suggest one of the other formats before this one. It’s a sad day when a graphic designer’s vector art gets bimapped!
  3. reveal.js/slides.redhat is the template that I think will produce the best product for presentations, with clean SVG backgrounds AND gradients *happy dances*. I’ve embedded the reveal template below.

It doesn’t seem that I’m able to attach the actual documents here, so if you’re interested in using any of the mentioned templates feel free to check out the Design Team ticket that they all *should* be available on. The most updated files are in the last comment of the thread. If you have any issues accessing them through the ticket, feel free to reach out to me and I will manually email them to you too πŸ™‚

Happy presenting!
