The great thing about Google Slides presentation templates? They’ll work for everyone, as long as they have an internet connection—no matter the device, tech, OS, or region. The not-so-great thing? The web is flooded with those, and most of them look horrific.


You might spend hours trying to find a Google Slides template that offers enough versatility and the exact vibe you’ve been after. Or, you might stick around and see this hand-picked selection of the finest GSlides templates available online—curated for you, by me.

And just so you don’t get too confused over there, here are my picks for the best-looking ones.

Consulting proposal

Consulting Proposal

As the name implies, it’s best suited for business proposals. You’ll find a solid variety of slides for listing your business objectives, introducing the company and its projects, as well as adding quotes for mission statements and more.

project wireframes

Project Wireframes (by Balsamiq)

Co-created by Balsamiq Studios, a California-based mockup tool, this one is intended to present key ideas around your projects. A very versatile template that will allow you to beautifully illustrate your data on graphs and charts.

Your big idea

Your Big Idea (by Made to Stick)

Developed in cooperation with Chip Heath, and Dan Heath, the authors of the famous book, “Made to Stick.” A nice, dynamic, light-hearted Google Slide template for modern marketing.

pitch

Pitch (by GV)

Designed for product and project pitches and co-created with GV, “Pitch” is a very basic template that will go down well with corporate audiences. Best for those who enjoy simplicity more than fancy visuals.

Lookbook

Lookbook

The last one straight from your Google Drive, “Lookbook” is a solid pick for any presentation that requires a lot of pictures: obviously, everything fashion-related, but also general design, architecture, or even gastronomy!

 

Like the overall layout of slides in a given template but not too keen on design detail? Remember that even once you pick a template, you can still switch between themes.

 

How to personalize Google Slides templates?

 

In the navbar, select “Theme” (second from right), and you’ll get a drop-down menu of different themes. Make sure to check those out, especially if you’d like to make your Google Slides deck more vibrant and colorful.

All the templates above?

Yeah, they’re pretty. But Storydoc gives you much more than nice-looking presentations. 

We deliver real results. 

Transform your static presentation with Storydoc and close more deals, improve engagement metrics, and increase your customer base. Like these teams did:

 

Professional Google Slides templates

 

If you’re only looking for a personal-use template, or need one for a presentation your life doesn’t depend on, one of the free ones above will certainly do.


For the truly top-notch templates designers hours of work to deliver, you’ll likely need to pay a fair price. Scroll down to see a list of the best paid-for Google Slides templates available online today.

Simpelio

Simpelio

Brought to you by Visual Colonie design studio, “Simpelio,” will help add a boho-ish vibe to your presentation. A very professional, minimalist Google Slides template.

minimal

Minimal

Unsurprisingly, the “Minimal” Google Slides template created by Louis Twelve is very simple and clear. Will work great for business presentations, but also for teachers, students, and their academic projects.

corporate

Corporate

Nothing says corporate more loudly and clearly than a navy-blue background coupled with orange graphics, and a name like, well, “Corporate,” on top of it. On the verge of becoming a caricature of itself, this template will likely stick in typical large business environments.

Ossa

A bit more on the artsy side of the spectrum than the previous ones, “Ossa” by Pixasquare is a perfect template for highly visual presentations.

bord

Bord

Clean, uncluttered, and elegant, “Bord” is yet another minimalist Google Slides template on our list (almost as if it was a trend in today’s web design).

business strategy

Business Strategy

Suggestively called “Business Strategy,” designed by WhiteGraphic Studio, it’s a perfect template for internal presentations: objectives, roadmaps, pipelines can be aptly represented on the plethora of graphs available.

Simplicity

Simplicity

Powder-pink theme, tons of white space, nice color combinations make this one very eye-pleasing. Will work good for creative industries such as advertising or graphic design.

Martina

Martina

Named after my girlfriend and almost as cute as her, “Martina” is a Google Slides deck perfect for text-based presentations. The text fields are strategically placed around different kinds of slides to ensure the reader's eyes are guided to where you want them to go.

Lora

Yet another Google Slides template with a feminine name, “Lora” will be a perfect pick for portfolio presentations in fashion or design.

pestel

Pestel

Probably the quirkiest one on our list, “Pestel,” brought to you by Slidesmash, is fun to look at (probably more than to read from). User reviews say it’s great for posting presentations on social media.
