Standing in front of a group of people can be intimidating enough. The last thing you need is to be overdosed on caffeine and suffering from lack of sleep because you had to pretty-up your presentation until the last minute. Fortunately, there are some great folks out there, who are very good at what they do and willing to share their outstanding design work with others. One of them is interaction designer Andrew Haskin. He was pretty excited about Google’s debut of Material Design, especially the video they made to promote it. Andrew took it on as a challenge to recreate it using Keynote. Why Keynote? Here is how Andrew explains why did he decided to built this great material design template in Keynote :
For those of you who don’t know, I’m a huge advocate of using Keynote in my work. In my work, there’s constant discussion about which is the best and hottest new design tool to use. I’ve tried many of them, but in the end I still keep coming back to Keynote. It’s easy to learn and use, swapping assets is a breeze (using media placeholder), and most complex animations can be tested with Magic Move (the secret sauce to it all). Producing animations can span a range of fidelities; I can produce all the assets in Keynote, or I can copy out of Illustrator or drag and drop from Sketch (how seamless this works puts a smile on my face every time). As an interaction or visual designer, if you’re not using Keynote to test and bring your work to life, then I think you should start now! At least I hope this little experiment inspires you to try.
Are you looking to create some great Material Design presentations without spending an arm and a leg on a theme or template? If yes, then you should definitely check out this awesome material design Keynote template!
