Quote Holder

These variations of quote holders can set the quotes off in your slides and make them appear consistently throughout your presentation. It's easy to customize them by applying fill and line colors from your company's color palette, import photographs of person being quoted, and other types of formatting (gradients, drop shadows, etc.).

There are quote holders in the download for one, two, three, and four quotes from different people. You can also use these as a starting point for creating your own custom layouts.

Refer to the tutorial for information about usage and formatting.

Customizing the quote holders

Adjust size

Group the set and rescale by holding the shift key down as you resize (do not just resize or the quotation marks and circle will skew). Another way you can resize the quote holder is to just resize to boundary box (rounded-edge rectangle). Then reposition the text, circle, quotation marks, etc.

Color variations

Apply the colors you wish from your company template color palette. Just make sure that there is enough contrast between the background box and quotation marks and the overlaying text.

3D variations

No 3D with these please.


The background box and circle containing photograph can have drop shadows. Do not add shadows to the quotes.

Gradients, patterns, and pictures

The background box has a subtle gradient already applied. You can change the colors of the existing gradient if you wish. To learn how to import photographs into other objects, refer to the FAQ aFAQ entitled, "How do I create photographs in different shapes from rectangular photographs?"
