Breathe new life into the everyday presentation world with OM NXT for Keynote - a sophisticated general-purpose theme that will deliver your message with style and simplicity.
Reborn for the NXT era.
The OM themes have completely transformed in the transition to NXT, adopting more refined grid and type specifications along with new eye-catching palette options. New enhancements for Keynote 6 make OM NXT easier to customize than ever before.
The OM theme is among our most popular themes of all time, consistently charming audiences with it's straightforward, print-inspired approach. OM NXT - the first of our new next-generation Keynote themes - builds on the traditions of those previous releases while forging altogether new territory, adopting more refined grid and type specifications, eye-catching new palette options, and a host of architectural improvements to propel OM into the NXT era.
Designed with an eye toward simplicity, the overall OM style is light & soothing - creating a defined structure around the interplay of color, accent and negative space. Crisp contrasts of the signature colors - including updated palettes for the core theme and an all-new Celosia palette for the NXT Edition - break components of each layout into its principal parts. What results is a highly organized, fantastically stylish theme that is as easy to work with as it is on the eyes. The accompanying chart palettes - contrasting tonal blends, customized to each of the signature colors - are both understated and eye-catching. And thanks to the new Keynote 6-optimized architecture, you can now customize every aspect of your OM presentations more easily than ever before.
What's New? What's NXT.
The OM themes have been redesigned from the ground up in the evolution from '08 to NXT, retaining the soul of the original themes while adopting a refined, more elegant grid underneath along with updated - and expanded - color and type options on the surface. The entire master slide library has been overhauled with a less-is-more approach, eschewing dated or retired masters in favor of more focused, targeted variations around an expanded range of core content models - yielding a smaller library that manages to offer more flexibility than ever before. And the OM NXT themes are fully optimized for the new Shape and Text 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.
Slide level, the updated OM NXT grid and type specifications are far more elegant than prior generations, producing effortlessly beautiful slides that are better balanced against a wider range of projection and handheld presentation scenarios than their predecessors. The Olive tones of the original OM theme have been reborn in the NXT era with a contemporary Comfrey & Hemlock blend that provides better contrast and legibility for a wider range of text sizes and weights. The cool blues of OM Cerulean (formerly OhM) are now deeper and more vibrant than before. And the eye-catching OM Celosia is new to the NXT release, wrapping the updated framework in stunning hues of Celosia Orange set with Avenir type.
The OM layouts are designed to provide tremendous flexibility while maintaining an ordered, approachable look + feel. The signature Mosaic layouts include new captioning options, while updated photo-only slides are designed to make impromptu photo-driven narratives a snap.
The OM NXT themes include 36 master slides - a mix of content and image-driven layouts in the signature OM style. The core layouts encompass a full range of general-purpose styles, each striking a careful balance between color-contrast titles and content-driven layouts. Along with the basic text and photo layouts present in any Keynote 6 theme, OM NXT includes an expanded selection of content-oriented masters, including Percentage Compare & Contrast, Numbered Section Headers and multi-column slides, along with the signature Mosaic slide styles the OM theme is known for. 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 sophisticated feel to your data with a professional flair that translates well from screen to print.
The Big Picture.
Widescreen (HD) Themes, available in the OM NXT Pro Edition, expand the style into HD format with aspect-optimized widescreen versions of the OM 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 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 OM NXT aesthetic to the larger footprint of HD.
