Here’s a conundrum that consultants doing a presentation on the Middle East or one specific to Islam are bound to have faced – How do I give some cultural context to my PPT?
If you’re like most PowerPoint users who are pressed for time, you are sure to reach for the built-in themes and templates in the software and use one of the first to appeal to you to use in your presentation. Since Islam is associated with the color green, you’re most likely to choose a green theme for your template. And you’ll probably google for a picture of a minaret or a mosque and add it to your Slide Master.
Well, you can break that habit now that 24point0 has created a set of graphics and icons inspired by Islamic tradition and culture. These editable vector icons can be customized for scale and colors and will give your PPT a distinctive Middle Eastern flavor.
The deck includes icons inspired by Muslim festivals, places of pilgrimage, Arabic calligraphy and Mughal motifs:
As with all of 24point0’s vector graphics for PPT presentations, these too are easily editable in terms of color and scale and won’t lose clarity when modified. To change the color of any of the elements, simply select the required part of the graphic and choose the color you want from the PPT palette:
