PowerFrameworks was the first online library of downloadable conceptual graphics and came into being as a means of sharing the production graphics used by Kathy Villella as she supported her freelance clients. We are dedicated to providing value for value – and the value PowerFrameworks delivers continues to grow, as categories, series, and frameworks are added every month.
In 2010, PowerFrameworks developed the Presenter Program as a means for subscribers to "purchase" subscriptions for their favorite nonprofit/charity organization(s). With the purchase of each subscription, PowerFrameworks will activate a subscription for the same duration as the purchased subscription for an individual working at a nonprofit/charity organization. Nonprofits/charities have been particularly hard hit by the faltering worldwide economy, so we are partnering with our subscribers to provide the valuable resources at PowerFrameworks to help nonprofits/charities develop effective, visually enhanced fund-raising, education, and outreach presentations.
PowerFrameworks is committed to providing high-quality, value-added resources to its subscribers and registered users. We are also committed to sharing our knowledge about presentation strategies, development processes, layout and formatting best practices, etc., with anyone who wishes to visit the PowerFrameworks site and dive into the material.
"We are not here merely to make a living. We are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. We are here to enrich the world, and we impoverish ourselves if we forget the errand."
