Texture & Sophistication.
The Lyon system's understated textures bring a subtle, tactile feel to any topic, drawing your audience in without becoming overbearing. Lyon Rousse (v1.1) adopts an earthy, alternate leather/ cardstock combination.

Our latest City-Series destination - Lyon - was inspired by its namesake's blend of classic antiquity and contemporary cool, the fusion of romanesque flourish and post-modern minimalism that come together to form the city's one-of-a-kind character.

We designed Lyon for Keynote in the same spirit, embracing a classical, print-design heritage while pushing the boundaries with modern grid, type & texture relationships. We began with a finely-detailed Linen paper base, seating a modern editorial-style foundation that effortlessly grids everything from simple photo narratives to dense, analytic content. Black Leather and textured Turquoise Cardstock dividers provide two additional layers of depth and variety to the core Lyon theme – complemented by an earthy Red Leather & Neutral Cardstock combination in the Lyon : Rousse variation (v1.1). A classic blend of Palatino & Avenir tie it all together with an elegant, sophisticated flair that's always en vogue.

The included layouts – from traditional text-oriented content slides to photo-driven editorial layout styles – feature crisp, modern type set in an intuitive, multi-tier hierarchy that's designed to maximize clarity & minimize distraction. The accompanying chart styles include a set of Spectrum / Mono textured color-based palettes, along with a tonal Neutral option perfect for making callout/contrast charts. Supplemental Materials are built directly into the theme file, making it a snap to reference color or style information at any time during the authoring process. And the entire Lyon 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 your presentation to your individual taste with absolute consistency.

The Slides

The core Lyon themes include 54 core master slides — a mix of traditional, editorial & image-driven layouts in the signature Lyon style. Along with the basic content and photo layouts present in any Keynote 8.x-9.x theme, Lyon also includes an expanded selection of general-purpose content-oriented masters, including Percentage Compare & Contrast, Comparison Matrices, Quotations, Bio and Agenda slides, along with multiple styles of image layouts offering you tremendous flexibility from the start. Supplemental Materials are integrated directly into the theme, making it a snap to reference color chips and formatting tips at any time during the authoring process, whether you're on desktop or mobile. And the accompanying chart fills pop with a crisp, colorful style - including two complete Spectrum / Mono textured palettes, along with a tonal Greyscale style perfect for Callout/Contrast charts.
