Rediscover the flavors of Sonoma for Keynote - a tremendously adaptable, print-inspired theme that invites you to create your own definition of variety.
Sonoma evolves for the NXT era.
The Sonoma themes have evolved in the transition to NXT, adopting a more focused grid, all-new color varietals, and enhancements for Keynote 6 that make it easier to customize than ever before.
The Sonoma theme is among our most popular themes of all time, consistently delighting audiences with it's straightforward, print-inspired approach. Sonoma NXT - our latest next-generation Keynote theme - builds on the traditions of those previous releases while adopting a more refined grid, color specifications, and a host of architectural improvements to propel Sonoma into the NXT era.
Sonoma blends classic print-inspired styling with a color-contrast framework, designed to propel imagery, color and type forward while maintaining a consistent, structured feel. The result is a theme that not only allows you to make your quick-change customizations via a palette change or placing a photo - the design actually encourages you to take that approach to another level, mixing shape-based solid color blocks or contrasting photographic palettes into a diverse array of color and texture. The included layouts - from single-panel, full-page designs to multi-photo or "module" oriented layouts - are all approached with an eye to balance, detail and style that will make your material look great with very little effort. And thanks to the new Keynote 6-optimized architecture, you can now customize every aspect of your Sonoma presentations more easily than ever before.
What's New? What's NXT.
The Sonoma themes have been wholly redesigned in the evolution from '08 to NXT, retaining the soul and style of the original theme while refining the grid, palettes and slide types to be more flexible than ever before. The skeuomorphic bordering of prior editions has been eschewed in favor of a simplified, more focused design that provides a more generous fit for content and even more diverse color combinations. The entire master slide library has been overhauled with a less-is-more approach, cutting dated or retired masters in favor of more refined, targeted variations around an expanded range of core content models - yielding a smaller library that manages to offer more versatility than ever before.
The blue hues of the classic Sonoma theme have been reborn in the more vibrant Sonoma Noir palette, joined by all-new Gris and Blanc varietals, echoing the grape-skin tones the namesake region is known for. And the Sonoma NXT themes are fully optimized for the new Shape, Text and Chart Styles introduced in Keynote 6, so you can customize the principal color and type styles used throughout the entire theme to match your own corporate color or type standards in just a few short clicks.
New Varietals, Endless Variety.
The Sonoma NXT themes features a range of commanding text + photo-oriented layouts in a crisp, ordered style that frames your content in a tight, print-inspired feel. The classic Sonoma Noir is joined by all-new Gris and Blanc palettes, giving you more variety than ever before.
The Sonoma NXT themes include 34 master slides - a mix of content and image-driven layouts in the signature Sonoma style. The core layouts encompass a full range of general-purpose styles, each striking a careful balance between color-contrast accents and content-driven layout regions. Along with the basic text and photo layouts present in any Keynote 6 theme, Sonoma NXT includes an expanded selection of content-oriented masters, including Percentage Compare & Contrast, Quotation, Numbered Section Header, multi-column and captioned layout/photo slides. The accompanying chart fills - including both a colorful, broad-spectrum primary palette along with a more subtle, mono/duotone blend in Keynote 6 - extend the clean, structured feel to your data with a professional flair that translates well from screen to print.
The Big Picture.
Widescreen (HD) Themes, available in the Sonoma NXT Pro Edition, expand the style into widescreen format with aspect-optimized HD versions of the Sonoma NXT design, so you can take advantage of the clean simplicity of a an iMac, Mac-driven HD Display or Monitor, or HD projection system as target presentation platforms without the letterboxing associated with running traditional 4:3 presentations on widescreen.
