40+ Awesome Keynote and PowerPoint Templates and Resources

Keynote (part of Apple’s iWork office suite) and PowerPoint (part of Microsoft’s Office suite) are likely the two most commonly used presentation software programs out there. PowerPoint is more likely to be found in the corporate world, whereas Keynote may be more popular in creative fields (due to the proliferation of Macs in the design field). Creating presentations in either program is a similar process, though.

Finding good resources for creating presentations isn’t always easy. There’s a definite lack of quality free presentation templates for both PowerPoint and Keynote, though it’s definitely more pronounced with PowerPoint. The good news is that there’s plenty of premium templates available, many for very low cost. And creating your own templates is as easy as creating a slide (just save it as a template file instead of a regular presentation file).

First-Generation iPad: The Perfect Hack for Focus?

Think about it. We know that multitasking does not work (with the exception of a select group of “super-taskers”). It has been proven again and again and again. Still, we are addicted to it. As a result, much of the current writing on productivity focuses on ways to increase self-discipline (or trick ourselves) so that we can suppress the urge to multitask.

The first-generation iPad has the unique benefit of being a beautiful device that forces you to uni-task. A recent WIRED article touted the tablet as a great learning device, commenting: “On the iPad, any application you run takes over the full screen. So, when you launch your note-taking app for class it’s the ONLY thing you see. It improves focus and makes it more difficult for our easily-distractable students and employees to browse away to Facebook.”

Where to hold client meetings when you design from home

Being a freelance designer is a blast! You get to spend time working on your business and working in your business. You get to be the designer, the customer service representative, the accountant, the creative director, and more. One of the most enjoyable parts of being a freelance designer is meeting with clients, establishing solid relationships with them, and getting to know them and their company.
You meet with clients so you can better meet their needs, establish goals, or report on progress. But if you work from home, which many freelance designers do, it can be difficult to find a good place to meet with your clients. This article will offer a list of creative places to hold client meetings when you design from home. I’m sure there are a number of other places I haven’t even thought of, so please feel free to share your favorite places/ideas in the comments.

Principles of Great Design: Craftsmanship

I love beautiful things. There’s very little in the world that takes my breath away quite like an object that was lovingly crafted, built with care and passion, and presented with the sort of pride that befits a marvelously well-made item.

That which is beautiful is increasingly difficult to come by in a world where a premium is placed on speed, and things are made to be disposable. We often sacrifice real craftsmanship at the altar of expediency. While we are still capable of recognizing the value of something that has been expertly constructed, we often choose the cheap and easy option instead.

For years, I shaved my face with a disposable razor. It did the job just fine. It was straightforward and easy. It even looked flashy. And every few weeks I’d pop off the disposable end, throw it away, and replace it with a ridiculously expensive new cartridge. I blew hundreds of dollars on razor cartridges over the years. And I never got shaves that I felt were perfect.

¿Donde estaban las mujeres?

El gran problema fue que la cultura dominante ofrecía a las mujeres menos oportunidades de actuar sobre lo que advertían. Pero eso no les impidió advertir lo que estaba ocurriendo. Advirtieron que el estilo de management de apostar a ganador estaba vaciando valor de largo plazo; que el achicamiento se usaba para justificar los fabulosos contratos a ejecutivos basados en pago por desempeño. Notaron que los directorios con 85% de líderazgo masculino no se ocuparon de poner límites a ejecutivos adictos al riesgo que se premiaban con generosidad aun cuando las cosas no andaban bien. Veían que las feroces estrategias de crecimiento y las implacables adquisiciones a menudo eran un juego de números que se veía bien en los papeles pero nada hacía para mejorar productos, servicios o satisfacción de cliente. Y veían también estancadas sus propias carreras mientras otros ejecutivos de antecedentes dudosos parecían caer siempre parados.

Notaban que se deterioraba la calidad de la vida de todos mientras las organizaciones absorbían más riesgos y ponían más presión sobre su gente. Exigencias extremas creaban un lugar de trabajo tenso, desequilibrado e inclinado a perseguir siempre el éxito personal. Esos individuos se rodeaban de otros que, como ellos, sólo iban detrás de la recompensa financiera. Las personas talentosas que valoraban el equilibrio, la vida familiar o simplemente la posibilidad de tener tiempo para tomar decisiones sensatas eran consideradas blandas o perdedoras. En ese ambiente, no sorprende que muchas mujeres no pudieran avanzar.

No vamos a especular si más mujeres en posiciones de poder habrían impedido el desastre. Más bien, que la subrepresentación de las mujeres en posiciones de jerarquía fue a la vez consecuencia y síntoma de una cultura de liderazgo que se había vuelto cada vez más desequilibrada.

La incapacidad de las mujeres para sentirse profundamente comprometidas por esta cultura sebería haber dado una señal de advertencia de que se avecinaban problemas. Pero las empresas optaron por ver la retención de mujeres senior como un tema de género en lugar de una preocupación estratégica o de liderazgo.
