This plugin adds tons of design elements to Google Slides

How this new software lets you beautifully design your next slides presentation without being an artist, but will make you look like one.

Premast Plus for Google Slides on iMac.

For small business owners and entrepreneurs, slides decks are a big part of business, and if you are still dropping black text on a white background it’s time to throw some color into your life.

If your first objection to that line above is “but I don’t have time,” users of Premast Plus — which just dropped its Google Slides plugin — say they’re saving time while taking their slides to the next level.

Similar to a favorite of non-designer designers, Canva, Premast “enables you to design stunning presentations in a snap” without design experience.

So why is it so special and different from regular ol’ Google Slides? Premast comes loaded with design elements you can just drag and drop that include hundreds of slide templates, different style icons, illustrations,  thousands of stock images, and gifs.

You could spend time manually sourcing images, looking up icons, and placing a gif off-centered…again, or pay a professional to do it for you, but if you’re like me and don’t like wasting time or spending a lot of money Premast let me do it for free.

If you want to go above and beyond, there’s a paid version that comes out to $6 a month with access to premium templates and 2GB storage to save your beautiful new designs. The free version only comes with 100MB.

The real pièce de résistance for me, however, is Premast’s Brand Kit function. When you’re a small business keeping a uniform brand grows credibility and customer loyalty, and when I notice a brand that is all over the place it is normally enough to turn me off. With that function, whenever you finalize brand assets you can save them to quickly apply to other designs later, and if your team is growing you can share your brand kit with others to maintain branding across the board.

Premast also integrates with Microsoft Powerpoint and only takes about a minute to make a free account and add it to your software of choice.

So, please, I am begging…before you walk into your next meeting with a slide deck in hand make it pop, who knows maybe you’ll impress and land a new deal.

PreMast Plus for PowerPoint Slides

With nearly a decade of writing experience Dewey can’t stay away from the addictive quality of words, an addiction that rivals his constant need to share his opinion (he’s a Gemini). When he’s not working, writing or doom scrolling Twitter, you can find him on one of Austin’s many beautiful hiking trails or tucked away in a dimly-lit speakeasy. Oh, yeah, and he hates the Oxford comma.
