Tutorial for Timing 003 – Clocks
This series works well as a graphic enhancement to an agenda. It can also be used as a tracker in the right circumstances.
Customizing the Clocks
If you want to change the size/shape of the PowerFramework, be sure to group it and resize the entire group. Once resized, ungroup to proceed with other customizations.
Select color from your document's color palette or a complimentary color so that the PowerFramework will reflect the color scheme of the rest of your document. Since these frameworks are conveying information, be sure that the numbers and the hands are the most prominent aspects of the framework.
3D should not be used with these frameworks.
Shadows should not be used with these frameworks.
Gradients, patterns, and pictures
Gradients should probably not be used with these frameworks, unless they are ultrasubtle.
Animations should be selected that will enhance the meaning of the message, not merely to add interest to the slide. Simple reveals are best with this type of framework.
