A quick squint around the internet and you can pretty soon find loads of Prezi templates to buy or download – including a lot of free ones from Prezi themselves. In fact the Prezi website is clogged up with businesses churning out templates by the dozen. Some of the templates are useful, some look good, and just a few will actually help the presenter make his or her point.
As we’ve argued before, the drive for all of this template thinking could well have been a desire to make Prezi more like Powerpoint, and more user-friendly, in terms of penetrating the wider corporate world quicker than Prezi might otherwise be managing. We like Prezi, and we like templates as a way of helping use Prezi to its greatest strength.
The interesting presentation of engaging and attractive images, and the reduction of all that vomit inducing spinning and pointless rotation, panning and zooming.
We even wrote a mini book about the danger for Prezi right now- Prezi the second wave– with a plea to the millions of enthusiastic Prezi users to start to use it differently.
We have to confess that we do encourage delegates on our Prezi training courses to use templates when starting out, if only to get over the ‘Big Picture’ hurdle which, let’s face it, is so often the first and most fundamental stumbling block when faced with the massive blank canvas that is Prezi. We know that it isn’t easy and so, to that end, our designers created a whole range of Graphic Packs to help you get started. We’ve decided to stop selling them, because there’s so much to choose from, so we’ve left our best for you to have for nothing.
In our hearts we know that a template won’t necessarily make a great prezi. And you won’t stand out from the crowd by using the same old cliche as everyone else.
But they will help you get started.
Our Graphics Packs are not fixed templates. They are designed to be highly flexible. All the images in the packs are separate files so you can use them whenever and wherever you want to, even adding them to your online Prezi collection for use in you future presentations. They will save you lots of time on design and creation, and…
Best of all, they’re free!
That’s right – we’re giving them away!
We’re adding to the range all the time so keep checking and if you have any ideas for templates or graphics packs that you’d like us to help you create just let us know – we’d love to hear from you.
