A presentation layout needs to communicate information and captivate the viewer. However, that isn’t always easy to do. Especially if you don’t want anyone in your audience to suffer a “death by Powerpoint.”

As you know, visuals are a huge part of a successful presentation. The right layout is the uniting factor between your information and the visuals.

Finding the perfect presentation layout template can take a long time. That’s why we’ve put together a selection of the best presentation layout templates of 2020, all available in Visme and ready to customize for your brand or project.


Create a Presentation Layout Using the Slide Library

The Visme Slide Library is readily available in the Presentations dashboard.  The slide library is separated into themes. All the slides inside a theme have a similar look and feel. 

When you choose one of the style themes, you're offered a large selection of slides in 20 different categories. 

Each category then opens up to show at least 14 unique designs in the style of your chosen theme. This way, you can mix and match the slides however you want and create a well balanced presentation.
