Working With Templates

Editing

For each template, we’ve blocked out suggested slides to give your Haiku Deck structure, but we’ve also made it really easy to add, copy, delete, or rearrange your slides. We’ve also made sure that changing the layouts and formatting your slides will remain simple.

And if you’re more of a visual learner, we’ve created a helpful video that teaches you how to arrange your text, change the font and text color, and more, here.

Selecting a Theme

We’ve selected a theme to match the mood of that specific deck, but you can choose any theme you’d like to use. Learn more about selecting themes here.

If you’d like to see a preview, and samples, of all 20 themes, check out A Field Guide to Haiku Deck’s Free Themes.

Using Images

You are free to use the images that we’ve selected, but of course you can also search for other free Creative Commons images or import your own images.

If the deck uses a logo slide, you’ll want to add your own logo to the cover slide, and use your own brand colors. You can learn more about these two features here.

Finishing Touches

Once you’ve finished editing and the deck, you’re probably going to want to share your deck. We recommend doing this straight from Edit Mode so that you can put these finishing touches to your deck:

  • Retitle the deck to reflect your changes.
  • These decks will be PUBLIC by default. If you do not wish for your deck to be public, make sure you update your privacy settings.
  • Update the deck’s description. You can do this by clicking on the Settings gear at the top right corner in the editor (in the web app), or by tapping the Share button (on the iPad app).
  • Select a category for your deck.
  • Choose whether or not you would like others to be able to copy your deck, just like you did with the template. Learn more about that here.

Presentation Template Examples

We’ve created and collected all kinds of useful presentation templates to give you a head start on inspiration and creation. Whether you’re sharing an idea, creating a press release, collecting or adding a visual resume to your LinkedIn profile, we’ve got you covered.

Here are a few of our favorite templates — and, of course, you can browse all of our presentation templates here.

Haiku Deck Rock Star Series: Crafting the Perfect Pitch

More than two years ago, soon after we launched, this ingeniously simple and informative Haiku Deck caught my attention. “Startup Pitch Template” was created by Jeremy Caplan, Director of Education for the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism and an accomplished journalist himself.

How To Promote Your Business: Startup Pitch Template by Jeremy Caplan

Startup Pitch Template, by Jeremy Caplan

Startup Pitch Template has proven to be one of the most enduringly popular Haiku Decks of all time, continuing to draw significant organic traffic, thousands of views, and dozens of social shares each month, more than 2 years after its creation.

When you consider that in the context of Haiku Deck’s origin — a radical pivot, inspired by the pain of putting together a pitch deck for a completely different business idea  — it’s pretty clear that people are looking for a better way to pitch their business ideas.

Our co-founder and CEO Adam shared this backstory, and his best tips for a killer pitch, in this entertaining Haiku Deck:


Secrets Of A Killer Pitch #sicpitch #sic2013 – Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that inspires

If your agenda is to promote or pitch, Haiku Deck is your secret weapon — especially with recent release of new features like logo slides and custom color backgrounds.

“If your agenda is to promote or pitch, Haiku Deck is your secret weapon.”

When I relaunched my consulting business recently, I didn’t have time to create a website or even business cards, but I definitely had time to make a Haiku Deck! It was a fun, flexible way to experiment with messaging and imagery. (Compare that to the expense of creating videos, which can be expensive and nearly impossible to update.)

Rock Star Tips for Promoting Your Business

  • Use a paragraph slide to share a mini-manifesto highlighting what you believe and why, or to summarize your offering. Danielle Oteri does this beautifully in her Haiku Deck created to promote the Feast On Innovation (which sounds AMAZING, by the way).

A Field Guide to Haiku Deck Slide Types

Bar graph or pie chart? Text block or headline?

I love the flexibility of these simple, yet versatile, slide types. You can also get creative — stat charts can be a fun way to showcase words as well as numbers, for example. The multiline text layout is super useful for quotes, short paragraphs, or even haikus.

Formatting is also a snap —  I no longer get frustrated with having to manually resize each text box I create, and I no longer resort to the “trial and error” method for finding the perfect font size, since Haiku Deck takes care of that automatically.

Missing Vizify? How To Create an Attention-Grabbing Visual Resume

Our friends at Vizify announced recently that they have been acquired by Yahoo and will be shutting down the site. They were awesome enough to recommend Haiku Deck as an alternate service for creating standout visual resumes. (Hai-5, Team Vizify!)

Like Vizify, we believe there are many compelling reasons to present your story visually.

  • Images engage your audience’s emotions and make your story more memorable.
  • Presenting content visually helps you stand out from the crowd.
  • Visual content is easier to consume on mobile devices.

In an age of information overload, visual content is an increasingly powerful way to communicate, and we’re here to make that part simple and fun. To make your transition from Vizify — or your leap to visual storytelling —  as easy as possible, we’ve created two flexible Haiku Deck presentation templates you can use to whip out a visual resume in no time flat.
