Launch your own self-customized Keynote presentation from Platform '09 - a theme designed from the ground up to be the fastest, easiest way to make a presentation entirely your own.
Quick Change Artist.
Every slide in Platform '09 can behave like a photo master, so changing the entire tone of your show is as simple as changing the background with color or photography. The Platform layouts let your style take over in classic simplicity.
Staying true to its roots, the new Platform '09 is designed with end-user customization in mind. We built upon years of customer feedback on the original Platform release, holding onto the core design values of easy, rapid design modification that the Platform approach enabled, while updating almost every aspect of the theme to take advantage of the newer iWork architecture, making it more flexible than ever before. What we ended up with is Platform '09 - a true chameleon of a Keynote theme that can stand on its own in its wholly-updated, contemporary palette, the familiar neutral grey of Platform Classic, or quickly adapt to its surroundings in the blink of an eye.
Every detail has been approached with ease-of-use in mind, resulting in a click-to-modify approach to theme customization. Every slide in Platform '09 can behave like a photo master, with inset layouts floating above a user-modifiable background, enabling you to change the entire tone of a slide simply by changing the background with color, photography, or even looping full-motion video. The paneled layouts, crisp type and subtle shadow all come together to build a classic uncluttered look all on its own, or provide you with the foundation to push it even further with your own personal touch.
A Clean Slate.
The Platform '09 theme features a classic inset panel design, allowing you to frame crisp type and layout in your corporate colors, favorite photos or even full motion video with unprecedented ease. Add a personal touch with Texture Overlay Objects or other special effects detailed in the Supplemental file.
The Platform '09 theme includes 30 master slides - a mix of photo and alternate text layouts designed with an eye toward neutrality, allowing for a wide range of colors and textures to be used with little need for further customization. Small Panel and Title Plate Masters provide an expanded view of your background palette or imagery, while Citation and Compare & Contrast masters offer compelling new ways to move your narrative beyond the bullet. The accompanying chart palette feature rich earth tones designed to both echo the chocolatey brown of our native '09 palette or the gunmetal grey of the Platform Classic themes, providing neutral-range contrast against a wide range of color used beneath the platform itself.
The Big Picture: Platform '09 HD.
Platform '09 HD, available exclusively in the Platform '09 Pro or Pro+Mobile Editions, expands the style into HD format with aspect-optimized 16:9 and 16:10 versions of the Platform design, so you can take advantage of the clean simplicity of a an iMac, a Mac-driven Cinema Display or HD Monitor, 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. Whether attached to an HD display or projecting to an HD-equipped room, your presentation will take full advantage of every inch, custom-tailored to intelligently adapt the Platform '09 aesthetic to the larger footprint of HD.
Take it on the Run.
