Presentation Design Services

Presentation Guidelines

Brand consistency is important across all touchpoints & your slides are no exception. When it comes to presentation design, the brand guidelines don’t cut it. They’re not precise & as stringent as presentation guidelines.

If you’re looking for a solution that helps you design great and consistent slides every time, building your own presentation guidelines or PowerPoint template system is the right solution for you.

Presentation Template System

Most companies use templates that have nothing more than backgrounds & layouts to use. They’re not as comprehensive and rarely have a drag & drop feature. Our template system is comprehensive and makes presentation design a little easy for your team.*

Deliverables: PowerPoint slide & slide master layouts, custom-made icons & illustrations library, custom-made infographics library, brand-specific imagery.

Presentation Guidelines

This solution is right for companies with in-house designers or those that outsource presentation design to an agency like us. This isn’t a DIY solution, only a trained presentation designer can work with such stringent guidelines.*

Deliverables: 40-page comprehensive presentation design guidelines.

    We provide 1 free revision with every presentation design service. If more revisions are required, we charge 25% of the whole presentation design amount. For example, if we’re working the visual enhancement project & the 10 slides cost is $550, we will provide 1 free revision & will charge $137.5 for additional revisions.

  • What’s the turnaround time with different presentation design services?
    The delivery time depends on the design complexity & revisions. Generally, it takes 10-13 business days for visual enhancement & 17-20 business days for visual enhancement + presentation messaging, for a 10 slides deck.
  • What’s the difference between the $50 presentation template & the presentation template you deliver?
    We know there are many presentation templates available in the market. They’re good with design layouts, color & style. But they’re rarely of any use practically. Plain & simple layouts don’t serve the presentation design purpose as they don’t save any time and don’t contain any usable resources. Moreover, almost every member of your team uses a different template which fails to give consistency to your brand’s presentations. The template we deliver is a Presentation Template System, it’s tailor-made as per your brand colors, brand creative assets, layouts, photoshopped custom imagery & branded infographics. It’s comprehensive, easy to design & saves your team’s time. That’s why it’s priced higher!
  • How should I choose between Presentation Template & Presentation Guidelines?
    Presentation Template Presentation Template is a system for DIY presentation design at your organization. We create custom-made libraries of icons, illustrations, infographics, edited imagery & layouts to make sure your presentation design is seamless every day. Though it may not produce slides as well as a professional presentation design agency, they do create decent, on-brand & consistent-looking slides. Presentation Guidelines Presentation guidelines aren’t for DIY designers. They would benefit you only if your organization has in-house presentation designers. It takes a trained designer to create slides using the presentation guidelines as they are quite strict & detail oriented. This solution also works if you’re outsourcing your presentation design to an agency.
  • Are the presentation guidelines complimentary if we outsource the presentation design to Ink Narrates?
    On outsourcing the presentation design to Ink Narrates for at least a 6-month retainer, the presentation guidelines design are not complimentary but heavily discounted. For outsourcing inquiries, please drop us an email at
  • What asset libraries are delivered in Presentation Template & Presentation Guidelines?
    We develop tailor-made & on-brand asset libraries for icons, illustrations, imagery, infographics, slide master layouts, editable text formats, etc. These presentation solutions are quite comprehensive & a permanent solution for your PowerPoint presentations.
  • When should I choose an animated presentation design service?
    Complex product/service Is your product/service complicated to explain? Does it involve showcasing a working model? If yes, then developing an animated PowerPoint presentation is the right solution for you. High-stake presentation Animated presentations are also used to dazzle the audiences with your presentation design. For example, if you’re presenting at a big event or pitching for a very big deal, using animated presentations can give your brand image an extra edge. Animated presentations are useful in navigating your audience’s emotions, especially when you wish to create curiosity & anticipation in their mind.
  • What’s the difference between animated presentations & animated motion graphics videos?
    Software used Animated Presentations are made using Microsoft PowerPoint while motion graphics/explainer videos are made using sophisticated animation software like Adobe Aftereffects. Usage When you’re speaking at an event/pitch, you’d like to have control of the pace & timing of the presentation which a video can’t do. For videos, you’ll have to stop & play to get hold of the pace. On the other hand, PowerPoint presentations could be timed accordingly and are easy to handle with your speech. The chances of mishaps like background visuals running out of hand are near to zero with animated presentations.
  • How much time does it take to develop an animated presentation?
    It takes 8-10 business days to develop & deliver an animated PowerPoint presentation. The process involves slide content creation, approval of brand’s creative assets, storyboarding & animations.
  • Can you develop animated presentations if I provide content?
    No, we can’t (A bummer isn’t it!) For animated presentations, the slide content development process involves storyboarding which requires a certain creative expertise. We can do this with other presentation design services but not animated presentations. Unless, the request is for e-learning module development where instructional design is expected of Ink Narrates.
  • What if we have more animation development than 10-20 slides, does the price reduce?
    Yes, we do provide volume discount for outsourcing and large size projects. For example, if you have e-learning or big production inquiry, the price reduces significantly. To request a quote, drop us an email at
  • What exactly is a sales deck?
    A sales deck is a presentation that’s tailor-made for a company’s sales pitch/product demo. It could be categorized into strategic narrative, only with slides. It’s presentation messaging is carefully crafted to communicate your company’s unique value proposition & to make your prospects see you as the best solution to their problems. A sales deck is also one of the best tools to paint a before/after picture into the buyers imagination & persuade them to buy from you.
  • Should I choose sales deck design or sales deck creation?
    If you already have your sales deck written & ready that just needs a good design, you can choose the sales deck design service. In sales deck design, we design/redesign your existing sales presentation. If you’d like our presentation consultants to work with you on the sales deck’s strategic narrative, you can choose the sales deck creation service. In sales deck creation we write the sales presentation as well as design it.
  • How long does it take to create my sales deck with Ink Narrates?
    For a sales presentation design, it takes 4-5 business days to deliver. For sales deck creation, we would need to work with you over an engagement of 12-15 business days.
  • What’s your opinion on ditching the sales deck completely?
    No, we don’t think it’s a good idea to ditch the sales deck completely. A sales deck is developed keeping a group of people in mind that is your team. Not everybody has the ability to hold the audience with just the tone of their voice. A sales presentation supports the speaker with visuals, gives them talking cues and something to drive their story. Also, what if few prospects ask you to send sales deck before meeting? We’re aware that everybody in the business world is talking about “Sales Presentations & Death by PowerPoint”. A PowerPoint can only be boring with too much text & too many slides. If you avoid that, you’re fine. Your presentation will actually interest people.
  • What are the benefits of a sales deck?
    On an average 6.8 people are involved in a b2b deal. It’s next to impossible to build a personal relationship with every buyer involved. Some of buyer side elements are passive and depend on the information the insider support champions provide to them. Under such circumstances, you need a sales presentation that does the talking on your behalf. Additionally, you may have come across situations where the prospects ask for your sales deck before even taking a meeting with you. Now imagine that presentation with a strategically crafted narrative that communicates value proposition clearly. Not to mention it supports your story with great visuals when you speak.
  • What’s the monthly slides volume needed to outsource presentation design to Ink Narrates?
    You need a minimum of 100 slides/month to outsource PowerPoint presentation design to us.
  • What's a good idea? Outsourcing presentation design to Ink Narrates or our regular creative agency?
    Your go-to creative agency might be an easy option to outsource. However, it may cost you more. Our smallest presentation outsourcing package costs $2000/month, costing $20/slide (even lower with more volume). We know for a fact that creative agencies charge way more. If cost isn’t your only deciding factor, then let’s address other things as well. Creative agencies don’t have niche expertise in presentations. As per our industry knowledge, they format slides in large quantities across the deck. That too in Adobe software. We work on PowerPoint which makes the files easily editable & usable for you. Also, creative agencies don’t have any dedicated helpdesk, but we do.
  • Should we have our own design guidelines to outsource presentation design to Ink Narrates?
    If you have, it’s great. But if you don’t, we can always create custom guidelines for your brand.

  • What are the benefits of making a pitch deck? What if I completely ditch the idea?
    A pitch deck is a document which is widely accepted as a form of submission by most venture capital firms. Even if you have your network & know the investors personally, they will ask you for a pitch deck to review your idea. A pitch deck is the first thing VC firms ask before they even meet you. Hence, it’s vital to the process of fundraising. A well designed pitch deck with to the point messaging helps you get through the door. Most importantly, it significantly reduces the risk of being eliminated.
  • Which pitch deck service should I choose? Pitch Deck Design or Pitch Deck Creation?
