In this extension, you will transform the appearance of your slides to match the tone of your presentation’s intended audience by experimenting with various themes, fonts, and colors. The ability to adapt the style of your presentation is essential, whether you’re aiming for a formal look for professional meetings or a more relaxed, casual feel for less formal occasions, such as applying for a fun summer job. To start crafting a formal version, sign in to your Google account and revisit your original project. Make a copy of this project and give it a new name, as you’ll be making modifications to this version while comparing it to the original. A professional theme offers a polished backdrop, ideal for job settings or situations requiring a sophisticated impression. Switching to a more formal font, like Times New Roman, typically used in official documents, can enhance this effect. Adjust the text formatting for clarity and impact. Repeat these steps for all text elements and consider altering the background color of your deck’s theme to complement the professional aesthetic.

Next, shift your focus to creating a more casual version of your presentation, suitable for situations like interviewing for a volunteer role at a summer children’s camp. Return to your original project, create another copy, and rename it. Follow the same steps you took for the formal version, but this time, infuse more creativity and fun into the design. Select a lively theme and an engaging background to convey a more relaxed and approachable atmosphere. Choose a casual font that is both distinct and readable, and apply these formatting choices to the text on all slides. By completing these steps, you will have successfully created two distinct versions of the same project, each tailored to different audiences while conveying the same information. Now, it’s your turn: modify the theme, text formatting, and colors to craft both a formal and a casual version of your project, ensuring each one aligns with its respective audience’s expectations.
