The Basset PowerPoint template
This template by SlidesCarnival is very simple and elegant, yet cheerful. On top of that it allows for a range of types of content.
Overall the template stays professional yet casual, by incorporating sleek architectural images and elements, as well as bold colors and fun icons.
How to best use the Basset template:
The Basset template is best used for live seminars or webinar presentations, delivered by one or two people. Alternatively, it could be used as a training booklet for new customers or employees.
Keep in mind that to change the background images inside this template, you’ll need to change the background on the Slide Master and/or format the background individually on each slide.
When you do so, make sure to use a light picture, or create white space around the side of the picture, so that you can read the text placed on top (otherwise it might be illegible).
While this is a free PowerPoint template, if you are creating a template for your team or company, I recommend investing in a more robust (and properly built) template like one from Envato or SlideCow.
That’s because those templates will be properly built on the slide master, making it easier for you and your team to work with and edit.
