How to Make Awesome PPT Slide Designs Quickly

You've seen our attractive PPT templates. Using good PowerPoint templates helps you make amazing slide designs quickly. To illustrate, we’ll work through a few quick steps to completely customize a PowerPoint layout. 

Let’s use the Aura – Awesome and Cool PowerPoint Themes that we featured above. It's one of the great PowerPoint templates that includes a ton of layouts. 

Great PowerPoint TemplatesGreat PowerPoint TemplatesGreat PowerPoint Templates
One of the many great PowerPoint templates available from Envato Elements.

Shown here is slide #36 from the PPT Design. As you can see, it’s set up as a Contact Us slide. At first glance, you might think this slide has a narrow use that might not work for you.

But premium PowerPoint layouts make customizing every slide a breeze. Start with a PowerPoint layout and customize it to find the balance between fast and professional. Let’s walk through three quick steps to completely reimagine this one.

Step 1. Remove Unnecessary Content

Remember that just because a content placeholder is there, doesn’t mean you've got to use it. It's easy to remove elements from PowerPoint layouts. In this case, we’ll delete the three blocks for addresses, phone numbers, and emails. 

To do this, hold down Control on Windows, or Command on Mac. Click to multi-select the text boxes and icons. Then press Delete.

Remove unneeded placeholders from PowerPoint layouts.

The unneeded placeholders will disappear, freeing up space on the slide. 

Step 2. Add Custom Text

Next up comes adding custom text. Edit existing text boxes, filling in your own words. We’ll begin here with changing the “Contact Us” line, then expand the paragraph placeholder below.

Good PowerPoint templates can be modified by adding custom text.

Remember, you can always change out font sizes, designs, and colors in the Font menu on PowerPoint’s ribbon. In seconds, we’ve added our own text.

Step 3. Insert an Image

Last up comes adding an image. PPT designs like this have a built-in image placeholder already included. To add an image, we’ll click on the blue icon in the center of the placeholder.

Then, we can browse to an image stored on our computer and click to insert it. PowerPoint will drop it onto the slide!

As you can see, making awesome PPT designs is easy when you use a pre-built professional theme from Envato!

5 PPT Design Tips for More Awesome + Interesting Presentations (In 2021)

A few quick tips can make all the difference when you're designing your next awesome PowerPoint presentation. In this section, I'll share five tips that'll change the way you approach slide designs. I'll also include a link to a tip or tutorial with each tip that shows you how to use the technique. 

1. Start With a PPT Template (And Customize It)

Above all, you should save yourself the time (and work) of creating slide designs from scratch. Don't spend hours drawing elements and objects on a blank slide. Instead, use a pre-built slide template with many of the starter elements you need for perfect slide designs. Using a template gives you PowerPoint design ideas that spark inspiration!

Some of the best cool PowerPoint templates can save you many hours of design. It helps to know how to use the slide master view so that you can customize them. Check out the screencast below to do that:

2. Use the Built-in PPT Layout Guides

As you move objects around on a slide, you'll see guides and lines that help ensure everything is aligned. Making sure you follow those layout guides will give your PPT slides a clean visual look.

Use the alignment screencast below to learn more about how to build awesome PowerPoint presentations:

3. Use the Built-in PowerPoint Layouts

The best cool PPT templates have a variety of layouts that you can choose from and use. Think of a layout as the blueprint for a slide with the built-in elements and objects that are ready for you to drop your own content into. Each of these slide layouts is PPT design ideas that can help you arrange your content.

Learn to change those layouts as needed in the screencast below:

4. Add Backing Audio to Your PPT Slides

Beyond the visual appeal of a slide, you can add audio to your PPT designs. This could be a sound effect or background music that sets the tone for your presentation.

One PowerPoint design idea is to use audio to create a mood or atmosphere in your presentation. If you're sending the presentation to others, audio will create a nice background for PowerPoint viewers.

5. Add Animations to PowerPoint Chart Elements

Animation doesn't have to overwhelm a slide. You don't want too many elements flying off and on your PPT template, but a few key animations will bring your data to life.

Are you still on the fence about using a PPT template to jump ahead in the presentation design process? You might wonder about the value of outsourcing the design work. 

Here are five reasons that you should use a great PPT template for your next presentation in 2021:

  1. You save time. When you use one of the best PowerPoint presentation templates, you start with much of the work and content already built. Drop your own details into the placeholders. 
  2. The finished slide deck is the best possible presentation. Design is best left to the professionals. The best PowerPoint presentation PPT templates end up with a better-finished product.
  3. Ideas are built into the slides. If you don't know what to include in your presentation, start with a template. A good PPT template is chock full of ideas for the content that every presentation should include.
  4. You don't give up customization. Just because you start with a good PPT template doesn't mean that you can't totally customize it. Even the best attractive PPT templates can still be modified and adjusted to include your personalized details.
  5. The slides stand out. Most presentations will use the Microsoft built-in presentation templates. Professionally-designed attractive PowerPoint templates are sure to stand out because it's unlikely that your peers will use custom PPT designs.

Common PowerPoint Questions Answered (FAQ)

The best cool PowerPoint templates help you solve the challenges of building a presentation. But you may have questions about whether PowerPoint is the right choice for your next presentation.

Let's look at five common questions presenters ask when they start building a PowerPoint presentation:

1. Is PowerPoint Better Than Apple Keynote?

The two most popular presentation apps are Microsoft PowerPoint and Apple Keynote. It's hard to compare the two. 

Many times, rookies favor Apple Keynote for its ease-of-use and easier learning curve. PowerPoint is more widely used in traditional workplaces. In reality, there's no single best choice. 

Check out the article below for some key considerations:

2. Can You Use PowerPoint for Any Purpose?

PowerPoint is often pigeonholed as only for traditional presentations. But with the help of the best PowerPoint presentation templates, you've got flexible options for what to build.

Increasingly, I find myself using PowerPoint as a "lean" design tool for diagramming ideas and concepts. It's so easy to drag-and-drop and rapidly iterate while designing ideas. 

Use the best cool PowerPoint templates like the ones in the article below to create a poster, for example:

3. Is PowerPoint Free?

The answer is that certain versions of PowerPoint are free, such as PowerPoint online. And many times, that online version is more than enough for most users. It supports the top amazing PowerPoint templates you saw in this tutorial.

Check out the tutorial below to see what's available (and what's missing) in PowerPoint Online:

4. Does PowerPoint Connect to Other Apps?

For many corporate professionals, their life looks like this: do analysis and research in some apps. Then show those findings in presentations. It helps if you've got tips that reduce the time to prepare visuals.

That's why the connection between Excel and PowerPoint is so powerful. In my own work, I've got PowerPoint presentations hooked to financial models built in Excel. As each month's results come in, the charts automatically update. They're ready-to-share with my business partners.

Working effectively between Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Excel is an incredible skill. Create attractive presentations with the help of these tips:

5. Can You Import Files In PowerPoint?

Don't worry. If you've got a PDF that you need to edit, you don't have to re-create it from scratch.

Use the guide below to take flat PDF documents and convert them into editable presentations in PowerPoint:
