Framework: CN003 – cn003_v04b
v04b: This version is in PNG format and not editable. The lock and
key come in with white fill and black lines. PNGs are simple to work
with and they can be animated. v04a of the lock and key is completely
PowerPoint. All of the individual fields are available for applying
fill and line colors, which means that there are a lot of formatting
Be sure you understand which format would best suit your purpose before downloading.
Notice that this version has a background (shown in blue). This is necessary because the keys extend beyond the lock, which you don't want. So bear this in mind when doing your layering. The background is actually in two fields. When you download it, look to see how it is constructed and be sure that your finished lock and key retain this background format (using different colors, of course, or maybe a wood finish).
Part of series: CN003 Concept 003 – Locks and Keys
Series Keywords: key, lock, unlock, open, access, unlocking the future, key to success, correct choices, problems and solutions, entry and barriers to entry, selective
Keys and locks can illustrate a multitude of concepts: unlocking the future (as in the example), key to success, correct choices, problems and solutions, entry and barriers to entry, selective access, and so on. Although this concept works well with just the key and the lock, being able to insert the key into the lock makes a stronger statement. A big part of this framework concept is the ability to animate the key going into the lock. Be sure to look at the downloadable animation example to see how this can be done effectively. Also, be sure to review the tutorial before beginning to format this series. You will need an understanding of how to work with the groups and fields within the groups that make up the keys and locks if you want to avoid unnecessary frustration and confusion. The tutorial breaks everything down into understandable pieces for you.
Important: v01a, v02a, v03a, and v04a are editable; and v01b, v02b, v03b, and v04b are in PNG format and not editable. Be sure you select the correct version to download.
