Everyone’s looking for that extra oomph that can spice up their Keynote presentations. (And if you’re not, you probably should be.) Keynote Theme Park, which specializes in a variety of Keynote oomph, has released two new sets of elements for enhancing presentations.
The first set, 360º Elements, is a series of stylized videos of letter and number transitions. They make it easy to add some style to things like slide introductions and key points, as they feature complex animations. All have transparent backgrounds to fit into any slide or theme.
The other major release, Nation Elements, contains a series of objects and clipart for representing regions and nationalities around the world. Keynote Theme Park completed its nation series with the addition of a set for Africa and a free Oceania set that offers a sample of what is available across the other collections in the series.
Each Nation Elements set (Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa) includes national flags, a spherical version of the flag, location maps, national border shapes that can accept Keynote fills, strokes, and shadows, coats of arms, and other national icons. More than 30 slides of tips and examples are included with each collection to get you headed in the right direction.
Keynote Theme Park offers these two packages in a variety of collections and prices. 360º Elements can be purchased in individual sets of specific transitions and either white or black for $6; all transitions can be had in either color for $15. Nation Elements sets cost $40 each, or you can buy all four for $100. Both of these packages require Keynote ’09.
