Timelines that are Different - 06

Many of you have been following our Timelines that are Different series, and it's now time to show you another fantastic timeline that you can use on your PowerPoint slides. The requirement to be featured in this series is not to be just useful and interesting, but the featured timeline also needs to be different and stand apart from usual timeline offerings.

Our sixth timeline slide is from infoDiagram, a template site based out of London, UK. My contact at infoDiagram was Peter Zvirinsky.

This particular timeline looks very simple indeed, and that in itself provides it with an amazingly, different attribute. The watercolor-stroke appearance of this timeline is uncomplicated and captivating at the same time. infoDiagram calls this diagram a Watercolor Timeline Arrow.

The limitation of this timeline is that you cannot add too many timeline stops. The sample shown above already has four stops, and you may be able to squeeze in an extra timeline stop at the most. Fortunately, this timeline slide is part of many other similarly styled Watercolor slides, and you may use elements from other slides to create more coordinated slides!

As part of our very popular series on timelines that are "different", let us now explore our fifth, different timeline! In this series, we are not exploring the "best" timelines that you can add to your slides. And really speaking, it was a conscious decision to choose "different" rather than "best" for this series because we wanted to bring you timeline slides that are not seen too frequently; and thus, will stand apart from the commonplace.

Our fifth timeline slide is from PresentationLoad, a slide vendor based out of Nierstein, Germany. My contact was Frank Hodrea.

So how is this timeline different than the typical timeline slide? First of all, this timeline is so much more visual that most timelines. Also, it makes best use of the larger width of the widescreen aspect ratio to fit in so many pictures! PresentationLoad calls this a Company History Timeline.

Although all pictures are grouped, you can still change them individually because newer versions of PowerPoint let you change pictures, even if they are within a group. And if you don't want to change pictures, PresentationLoad seems to have carefully chosen neutral pictures that will work in most scenarios! All put together, this is a set of 28 slides, and 27 of them have editable timelines!
