Tutorial for Forces 008 – Interlocking Boxes – Multi

Using Forces 008

These frameworks can be used as an alternative to the more traditional horizontal flows and also to show multidirectional flows and interactive flows.

Customizing the Flows

Adjust size

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.

Color variations

Select color from your document's color palette or a complimentary color for the fill so that the PowerFramework will reflect the color scheme of the rest of your document. If all of the segments are the same color, apply a line color slightly darker than the full color. You want it to be just enough to provide distinction.

3D variations

Because of the interlocking features of these frameworks, 3D doesn't work that well because of the layering. Use other design effects.


Shadows don't work well for the same reasons that 3D doesn't work.

Gradients, patterns, and pictures

Gradients work the best for adding interest and "depth to these frameworks.


Animate these frameworks as a reveal or fade: something that supports your message.
