Iconic Styling.
The Verge system blends modern type & an asymmetric editorial grid that lends a sense of movement to nearly any topic. Verge B adopts a Violet palette that provides a crisp, modern alternative to the signature Marigold.

Our new Verge themes were designed to be a flattering framework for almost any kind of content, built with adaptivity and easy customization in mind. The signature Marigold or alternate Violet accents lend a distinctive, modern feel while the externalized hierarchal accents and asymmetric grid adds variety and a pleasing sense of discordant movement. The entire system is set against a classically-informed editorial grid designed to maximize clarity and minimize distraction, bringing your photos and textual content to center stage while maintaining unity, order, and cohesiveness throughout your entire presentation. Photo-layout masters feature a range of layered, bleed & inset styles, 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 slides to single and multi-photo editorial layouts - feature clean, easy-to-read type set in an intuitive visual hierarchy designed to maximize clarity and minimize distraction. Two tiers of Running Headers are integrated throughout the theme, making it easy to add organizational cues to your narrative arcs. The accompanying chart styles include both expanded & narrow-spectrum color-based palettes, along with a tonal gray-scale option perfect for making callout/contrast charts. And the entire Verge 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 unique, individual taste.

Picture Perfect.
The Verge themes include a range of eye-catching, narrative-driven photo layouts and gallery spreads, including layered & full-edge bleed options along with traditional inset placements that allow you to showcase your concepts and ideas in context.


The Slides

The core Verge themes include 42 master slides - a mix of editorial & image-driven layouts in the signature Verge style. Along with the basic content and photo layouts present in any Keynote 7.x-9.x theme, Verge also includes an expanded selection of general-purpose content-oriented masters, including Percentage Compare & Contrast, Quotations, Speaker and Agenda slides, along with a tailored Welcome Message and multiple styles of narrative and Gallery-style image layouts offering you tremendous flexibility from the start. The accompanying chart fills pop with a crisp, solid-color style - including a pair of Narrow/Expanded Spectrum color palettes in each theme that allow you to pivot for contrast or mood, along with a tonal Grayscale style perfect for Callout/Contrast charts.

Verge Keynote Theme - HD Preview

The Big Picture: Verge HD

Verge HD, available in the Pro Edition, expands the style into HD format with an aspect-optimized widescreen version of the Verge 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 Verge aesthetic to the larger footprint of HD.
