10 Beautiful Keynote Templates for Everyone

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 awesome templates out there that can make working with Keynote a pleasure, and will help you engage your audience even more. Granted, these templates will cost you a couple of bucks, but I’d dare to say that a meager $15 is more than adequate for a well-designed presentation. You get the looks, you get the animations … and that enables you to focus completely on your content.

Here’s our fresh list of creative Keynote templates, including designs for every taste, business, and style. All of the following themes are ones creative designers are selling on GraphicRiver, another project from our parent company, Envato, but we think they’re nice enough to be interesting for our readers, too.

1. Interactive Menu

Usually, you need to keep your presentations simple along the lines of less is more. But if you have a lot to show and a complex structure for your content, this is the template to go for. It comes with some interactive elements, such as a slider for the images on the overview-page and menu that slides out if needed, that make the content appear less heavy. Also, the interactivity captures your audience and holds their attention much better than any average text only slides.

2. E-Commerce Infographic

Got a lot of numbers? Don’t put them into tables. No one ever reads them without falling asleep and the folks at the back of the room will squint at the tiny font. Instead, turn your numbers into interesting graphs. Everyone will be able to grasp the meaning instantly, and you can explain the intricacies verbally instead of forcing your audience to read them line by line.

3. Infographic Survey

If your numbers are not about commerce but you’re in the market for statistics, this template is right for you. Interest your customer with the results of surveys or studies – and head off arguments caused by misunderstandings by displaying your data in a compelling visual way. Remember: you audience doesn’t want to read your slides (that’s what leaflets or reports are for), they want to be entertained and enlightened.

4. Market Bees

So, your company needs a compelling presentation ASAP? And you’ve got no time to design something yourself? Well, Market Bees has you covered. It’s got all the templates  and styles you need for a company presentation: welcome slides, overviews, service displays and much more. Of course, it may not conform to your CI, but just change the colors and add your own logos. It’s still a lot faster than starting from scratch. And if your task is to create a template for future presentations, this is as good a base to start from as you will get for this price.

5. Karbon

I’ve mentioned it earlier: with presentations, less is often more. You need to talk to your audience, not force them to read. Also, you need to focus on what’s important. If you don’t need fancy graphics or images, Karbon is made for you. It boils your content down to what really matters – and if you do have a photo you want to show, it comes with an awesome full-page template for that as well.

6. ReWork

Need to be bold? ReWork will bring your message across. It comes in two themes, dark and light, and an interesting contrasting color-scheme. Of course it’s adaptable to your own color scheme, as are all the other templates introduced here. Also, ReWork will look great on both 16:9 and 4:3 screens and, thanks to the included layered PSD files, you can easily change the look and feel without having to start from zero.

7. Course

Course relies quite heavily on icons and graphics to present your content. Which is great, because your audience will grasp the meaning of an image much faster than getting your message from reading a text. The template includes different pages for different kinds of content and it stands out through its bright colors, which are still in harmony.

8. Minimalist

If you want to go as minimalistic as possible, give this theme a try. It’s all about icons and images. It won’t be suited for every type of content nor will it be suited for every presenter: you need to know your stuff and spin a compelling story to help your audience follow you. If you think you can pull it off, Minimalist is the perfect template to support your presentation rather than carry it on its own.

9. Vintage Photo Album

This is a special theme geared towards photographers. Instead of just slapping your photo onto a blank canvas, why not go for this template? There are different styles to choose from and a lot of templates for multiple photos or single presentations. You can add captions and text. While it will give your slideshow a very professional look, why not also use it for a private photo show? Digg out those old images of your parents and grandparents and surprise them with some vintage feeling. Or show your kids and grandkids stuff they only know from history books.

10. Retro Slides

Our last template is also a specialty one. As you can see, it’s retro all over. Again, probably not suited for most business uses, but why not use it for restaurants, museum, or historical sites? Those need to show off stuff as well. And who knows, a well-designed presentation like this might go down a lot better with sponsors than your average black and white slides. At this price, you’ve got nothing to loose.

    Most of them are very impractical, although very pretty. The font size in most of the examples is not large enough to put a projector. It looks attractive but your audience will suffer from severe miopia.

    You have a bad link for GraphicRiver. It is http://graphicriver.net/ not http://graphicsriver.net/ – no “s”.

      Thanks for the heads-up!

  • Blair

    Slick templates. If I was using Keynote on a regular biases, I would for sure make use of some of these.

    Just a heads up, the GraphicRiver link in the second paragraph, goes to a dead page to http://www.graphicsriver.net, with an (s) added in the middle.

    Is $15+ really worth it to use a template once? otherwise they look good.
