LinkedIn PPT theme

A long time ago I created some 3d LinkedIn logo illustrations for my royalty-free stock image collection, and I was happy to see how people used some of them. I saw these illustrations on business cards, websites, presentation templates, – and even a t-shirt! Unfortunately, the presentation templates I saw were very simple and I always thought about making some of my own. This is the first one.

The cover slide features a slightly modified version of one of my most popular LinkedIn logo illustrations. It consists of a pile of 3d LinkedIn app icons arranged in no particular order, placed over top of a two-tone blue background. The right side of the slide is very image-heavy but the left is kept clean and open for your title text. Speaking of title text, I should mention that I know that I always seem to provide the same phrase over and over again for all my templates (“Your Cool Presentation Title Should Go in This Space”) so apologies if you are sick of that by now. I’ll try to change it up in the future… 😉

The rest of the template uses a color scheme that plays off the vivid blues in the LinkedIn logo, which makes the whole thing seem dark, but still vibrant and colorful. And if you feel that there is too much blue here, adding orange accents here and there will brighten up the template a lot while still staying true to the brand. I know that many of my templates are very monochromatic, and some people don’t like that – so feel free to experiment and make it your own!

I think there is a lot you could do with template, especially considering how hot social media topics are at the moment. Even though this template only features one brand, I believe it’s still fully relevant for any topic related to social networking in general. Like it? You can download it here.

I’ve already got a fairly large collection of Facebook logo renderings available, but for some reason I just can’t ever seem to “finish” the series. After each set, I always tell myself that I’m done and that there is really no point in making additional illustrations. However, social media is such a hot topic these days and new ideas relating to Facebook logo illustrations are popping into my head all the time. I just can’t stop!

The idea for this particular collection of illustrations was something that I have been tinkering with for a while, and I finally got around to wrapping it up. My thought was this: social media apps (such as Facebook and Twitter) are amazing tools, and  we use them as “containers” to neatly organize our personal lives. Never before in history have we had a platform to to express ourselves and pour our personal information out to the world for all to see – and I find it fascinating to see what society fills those “containers” with. I wanted to create a set of illustrations that captured that line of thinking.

Since I already had a basic screwed-together Facebook logo icon built, I decided to disassemble it and place the primary focus on the inside. The icon has been split in half, and the top portion has been set to the side to reveal the inside section – which just so happens to look like an injection-molded plastic piece. Some are more abstract than others, but it was fun to think about the logo as a container and placing objects inside of it to represent different conceptual ideas.
