As usual, a beautiful post.

Kuler is a great tool to find beautiful color schemes. But many presentations can already be improved greatly if people just stick to the corporate color schemes that are "a given".

Look at your corporate colors (if you are working at The Economist, there is no escaping to using red), pick the most neutral shades and tints to design your slides and use the most vibrant colors as a strong accent color.

You can make great presentations within the boundaries of your corporate color scheme. Pick the shades wisely, and use them consistently.

I don't think you emphasised enough how easy and intuitive it is to use. It actually took me longer to work out to pronounce it "color" than it took me to make my first schemes.

Kuler is great, but wouldn't it be even better to be able to import a color scheme from Kooler to PPT? Where do you place the 5 Kuler colors in PPT?

Dear Garr,

first of all thank you for your blog and for your amazing book (I'm waiting impatiently for the new "Presentation zen design"!).

I'm a non-designer and I'm desperately searching for a book on color theory. Can you point me a good one? In an old post you had mentioned "A Field Guide to Digital Color", but I think it's too advanced for me...

I ask you because I read several books you mentioned and I know that I can absolutely trust you!

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Vale.
