style guide that use Miami colors and the logos of Miami and the FSB. The templates contain
layouts for title slides, bulleted content, graphics, side by side comparisons, and other common
slide formats. By using the templates, you can ensure your PowerPoint presentations will follow
the basic design principles of Consistency, Repetition, Alignment, and Proximity.
