Course description

The most important step when beginning a project in Articulate Storyline is to assign your branding to backgrounds, text, buttons, captions, shapes and all the other amazing objects provided by Storyline for use in your presentations. Understanding how to assign theme colors will enable you to build your courses with elements automatically colored to your brand from the start.

Once you have created your color pallet, it is time to build a solid foundation of master slides complete with all the layouts you need designed to your brand specifications.

This course will take you through the following objectives:

  • Creating theme colors to assign throughout your entire presentation
  • Choosing a font family for headers and body text
  • Designing master slides and layout slides with placeholders for content
  • Setting default style preferences for slide objects
  • Assign the theme colors to the story player
