Our newest City Series theme takes a decidedly classic bent, with a richly textured interpretation of the Arts & Crafts movement style.
Along with the more traditional slide layouts, Oak Park features a range of "Book Style" masters blending subtle, hand-detailed linework with crisp, classic type and texture.
Oak Park takes its moniker from the Chicago suburb that saw both the literal birth of Hemingway and the career birth of Wright - a town central to the expansion of the Arts & Crafts style and design sensibilities into America.
Our own interpretation of this spirit - Oak Park for Keynote '08 - pushes the Arts & Crafts approach into the digital age with a richly-textured, hand-crafted look and restrained, use-driven design. The included master slides - a range of standard, Caption Style and Book Style designs - blend classic layout with hand-detailed linework and accents to give your presentation a subtly organic, almost hand-drawn feel. The chart fills, including both earth-toned 2D fills and custom woodgrain 3D textures stained in finishes typical of Arts & Crafts era furnishings, carry the style to your charts and data with a subtle, professional feel. The look is rounded out with a sumptuous, textured leather cover and crisp geometric bullets, resulting in a theme uniquely suited to narrative-driven presentations on architecture, real estate and development, or any topic in need of a classic artisan feel.
Need to make it even more your own? The Oak Park Supplemental file includes a range of both linear and organic Accent Objects - Arts & Crafts era inspired glyphs and objects you can Copy & Paste into your presentation for quick personalization. And thanks to the new Keynote '08 architecture, you can change the Picture Frame stroke style on a single slide, or make the change permanent on the master slide, where you can also move, or remove, the internal linework in nearly every layout.
Choose Your Approach.
Oak Park features a range of photo-oriented slides - including alternate "inset style" frames for key masters - in a mix of standard, Caption and Book Style designs.
The Oak Park theme includes 36 master slides - a mix of photo-oriented and alternate text layouts in standard, Caption and "Book Style" designs. The layouts are designed with an eye to the classical, driven by an understated order imposed by the subtle hand-drawn feel of the bordering and linework elements. Caption style slides push your imagery front and center - with a simple eye-catching title and supporting text - while the Book Style slides allow for a more narrative-based approach, using photography as an accent to the story rather than the driving force. The accompanying chart fills - earth-toned "dyed linen" textures for 2D charts and custom Stained Wood 3D textures - extend the Arts & Crafts feel to your charts with a subtle, professional flair that looks right at home on the finely textured paper backgrounds.
The Big Picture: Oak Park HD.
Oak Park HD, available exclusively in the Oak Park Pro and Pro+Mobile Editions, expands the style into HD format with aspect-optimized 16:9 and 16:10 versions of the Oak Park design, so you can take advantage of the clean simplicity of the new iMac, a MacPro-driven Cinema Display, or a next-generation HD projection system as target presentation platforms without the "dead space" associated with running traditional 4:3 presentations on an HD display. Even run full screen on your new MacBook Pro to take full advantage of every inch of the remarkable display. Your presentation will look like it was custom-tailored for your machine.
Take it on the Run.
Oak Park goes mobile with the Oak Park EP Edition, included in the Oak Park Pro+Mobile Edition, built to take the Oak Park style to the iPhone/iPod Touch or classic-format video-capable iPod in a format optimized for small-screen viewing.
