Windows Phone 7 Metro UI theme for PowerPoint

A few days ago, I held a 7-hour presentation and training considering Windows Phone 7. The training took place in Microsoft Innovation Center, Athens. A shorter version was also presented to an academic event in Athens University of Economics and Business. Preparing my slides, I came up with the idea of using a Metro UI theme throughout the presentation!

So, here is the final result: You can either download the .pptx file (in order to view the transition animations properly) or view the presentation directly on SlideShare:

Note: In order to build your own Metro UI PowerPoint slides, I suggest using Office 2010 to achieve the proper transitions. Furthermore, you need to install Segoe UI (pre-installed in Windows) and Segoe WP fonts. I have used Segoe UI Light for the titles and Segoe WP Semilight for the rest of the text.

This is another attempt to prove that Metro UI is everywhere. It has been adopted by both desktop and web applications, while recently became the default look-and-feel for Windows Phone 7. To be honest, I really love Metro UI's feeling: It's simple; it's different; it's a new sense. And, more important, it can be applied to many different occasions (like the Windows Phone 7 business card template I recently designed). So, what do you think about it?

    Great idea, thank you.

    It inspired me to create my own .pptx template in Metro UI style.

    SlideShare doesn't provide presentation downloads except as PDF now. Could you put the PPTX elsewhere and update the link to it?

    SlideShare doesn't share the PPTX, only PDF. There's no way we could "download the .pptx file (in order to view the transition animations properly)". Thanks for nothing.
