Implied Motion.
The Elevation layouts shift the balance of foreground and background from slide to slide, creating a sense of motion that becomes even more pronounced when multiple slides are "bridged" with push or cube transitions.

The Elevation theme has been a consistent fan-favorite since its original release, appreciated for its aggressive, modern styling and forward-looking, contemporary edge. Elevation NXT - our latest next-generation release - builds on the tradition of those previous releases while adopting a wholly remastered framework, modernized grid and color specifications, and a host of architectural improvements to propel Elevation into the NXT era.

Elevation's high-tech appeal makes it especially well suited for architectural, scientific or high-impact corporate topics, with a range of detail-driven layouts and extras brought together in a design that's equally well-suited for a wide variety of general-purpose topics. The included layouts - from traditional text-oriented slides to inset and layered photo slides - feature clean, easy-to-read type and bullets on content "panels" that can stand alone or become one long stream of content when multiple slides are brought together in a push or cube transition. The accompanying chart palette subtly echoes the background texture, with a subdued gradient and ridge-texture pattern that reveals more detail as more of the fill is exposed, and slide numbers become a natural, secondary accent on nearly every slide in a style that doesn't divert eyes from your content. And the entire Elevation NXT framework is optimized for everything the modern Keynote architecture offers, including a a full suite of color, type and table styles that make it a snap to tailor each slide - or your entire presentation - to your unique, individual taste.

What's New? What's NXT.

The Elevation themes have been remastered from the ground up in the evolution from '09 to NXT, retaining the soul and style of the original theme while refining the architecture, grid, palettes and slide types to be more flexible than ever before. 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 versatility than ever before. The signature Panel Framework and textures have been modernized and refined, with a cleaner, more contemporary feel. And the Elevation NXT themes are fully optimized for the shape, Text and Chart Styles introduced in Keynote 6, so you can customize the principal color or type styles used throughout the entire theme to match your own corporate color or type standards in just a few short clicks.
