Our visual identity is classic and powerful. Using it in presentations helps set our brand apart from the crowd.
Our presentation templates are available for all college entities: CFAES, CFAES Wooster, OSU Extension, and Ohio 4-H. The ability to customize the files to reflect your own unit within each entity has been built into the design.
Each presentation has a number of layout options with preset formatting for the title, subheads, and body copy. The layouts include introductory slides, transition slides, and text-only slides. You are welcome to create your own slides within these presentations, as long as they are brand compliant. You are also welcome to create your own brand compliant presentations.
To add a new slide, click on the arrow in the New Slide button on the Home tab. All of the slide layout options will appear. Select the one you want to use. To type a headline, click on the headline text. To type slide text, click on the First Level text box.
Keep in mind that presentations are not meant to tell the entire story for you. They are meant to supplement your narrative. Keep text to a minimum and add extra content in the notes section.
Note: You must be logged in with your Ohio State credentials to access the files. If you have any trouble, please contact CFAES_BAT@osu.edu.
Make sure to:
Download the brand fonts and install them on your computer.
Use brand colors, art and imagery.
Keep slides simple. No more than six lines to a slide and six words to a line.
Use image slides and title slides for topic transitions and to create visual variation.
Make presentations accessible by following our accessibility guidelines.
