Available for PowerPoint and Keynote.

Available for Mac’s Keynote only.
As the name implies, this presentation template is, well, sharper than most. Tons of negative space will provide your audience with the much-needed breathing room and guide their eyes to what’s most important. A good pick for corporate presentations: doesn’t stand out more than what’s acceptable.
Available for .ppt and .key downloads.
A presentation template designed to facilitate telling stories—brought to you by Venngage. And, while there is a more effective approach to business storytelling than showing one slide after another, you can try to make this theme work. The icons are neat, fonts complement each other, and colors have a certain soothing quality to them.
The “Oricon” presentation template by RsmBoutique is a nice example of versatile content. Slide layouts are nicely varied so you can be sure to find a composition that works for you. On the flip side, customer reviews say it requires a fair bit of input. But if you don’t mind doing a little work on your end, the results shall be worth it.
Available for Google Slides.

Simplicity, they say, is the ultimate sophistication. This presentation template designed by InspireTemplate studio won’t let any gimmicks shine brighter than your core message. Perfect for creative industries such as advertising or graphic design.
A pack that comes with a .pptx file, plus custom fonts and vector icons..
A highly-customizable presentation template by Visme: comes with 300+ slide layouts, a few font packs, and various color combos. And it has a nice, youthful feel to it. Will work like a charm with product pitches. The main problem? You’ll need to do a lot of work yourself to make your presentation look as good as the mockups.
Proudly presented by ShapeShift Studio, the “Ravi” presentation theme practically screams Gen Z. It’s daring and hard-hitting, if slightly pretentious. A good pick for artistic portfolios, less so for standard business presentations.
Comes in multiple colors and with vector icons..
PixaSquare design studio engineered this presentation template to work for multiple purposes: not just presentations but brochures, catalogues, and lookbooks. We applaud the looks and the versatility. It’s just that… Jacks of all trades are usually masters of none—this seems to be exactly the case.
This minimalist presentation template for Google Slides is extremely user-friendly: even if you’re totally inexperienced in making presentations. This, in turn, means less customization options. Will work great if you’re pressed for time.
Available for Google Slides.
Free presentation templates

This free presentation theme from Slides Carnival is based on a subtle 3D background and very simple font pairings. Easy on the eyes, delicately dynamic. Won’t work great with images so use it for plain-text presentations.
Available for Google Slides.
The “Simple Black” presentation template designed by Jimena Catalina is elegant and stylish. Perhaps too simplistic for today’s standards but it surely won’t distract your audience from the main message you want to get across.
Developed with a clinical case study in mind, the “Tinnitus” presentation template will be a solid choice for any scientific industry. Subtle shading makes this one fairly eye-pleasing and the neural-network-inspired shapes in the background gently hint at some advanced technology going on.
Named “Startup Pitch Deck Template,” this theme brings an energetic, contemporary vibe to the table. Plenitude of icons, charts, and graphs will aid the visual side of your presentation. Minimal design will convince everyone you’re a startup bro, not some corporate desk jockey.
And that’s a wrap
Before you go, a few pointers to to keep in mind:
Always choose a presentation template based on your specific audience. It’s more about them than it is about you.
Pick a template that’s flexible enough for your needs; you’ll need different slides to present different kinds of information, make sure you can make tweaks to graphics, charts, and typography.
Tell a story. Long paragraphs and complex sets of data won’t thrill your prospects as much as storytelling will.
