Shadow & Light.
The Umbra system's understated styling brings a crisp, energetic feel to any topic – with colorful accents framing a modern, multi-tier editorial grid and contemporary slide archetypes. Umbra - Light (v1.1) adds a print-friendly white variant for even more flexibility.

Our new Umbra theme system was designed to be an understated workhorse – a modernist blend of crisp, bold type and color contrasts that exudes cool without drawing undue attention away from the subject matter. An eye-catching pop of color accents modernist titles and an adaptive, hierarchal editorial sub-grid that's designed to maximize clarity with a stylish, timeless flair. The balance of color & clean, modern type thrust your photos and narrative content to center stage while maintaining unity, order, and cohesiveness throughout your entire presentation. Photo-layout masters feature the signature layered style, along with a mix of bleed and inset-image layouts, giving you a wide range of options for media placement that can blend with - or stand apart from - the surrounding content.

The included layouts – from traditional text-oriented content slides to photo-driven editorial layout styles – are set on an adaptive, multi-tier hierarchal grid that's designed to maximize clarity & minimize distraction. The accompanying chart styles include a pair of Mono / Dark mono-step 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 Umbra 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.

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 a pair of Mono / Dark Spectrum palettes, along with a tonal Greyscale style perfect for Callout/Contrast charts.

The Big Picture: Umbra HD

Umbra HD, available in the Pro Edition, expands the style into HD format with aspect-optimized widescreen versions of the Umbra themes, so you can take advantage of the clean simplicity of an iMac, a Mac-driven Cinema Display, or an HD Monitor or Projector as target presentation platforms without the "dead space" 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 Umbra aesthetic to the larger footprint of HD.
