Simple Powerpoint Templates White Background

I am a huge fan of simple, minimalistic Powerpoint templates with white background.

Why white background: Basically it is more convenient for printing (save ink), as well as it looks more elegant and professional.

However, most Powerpoint templates are too “flashy” or “colorful”.

On the other hand, the most basic template (just pure white background) is too dull and boring.

Simple Elegant Powerpoint templates

Actually the official Microsoft website has quite a few nice templates. The problem is that less than 5% of them satisfy the criteria of being simple, elegant, and white background.

Two that I found are:

  1. Echo design template
  2. Eclipse design template

If you know other good Powerpoint templates, please share in the comments below!

LaTeX Thesis Template

This site ( has a guide on how to create your own \LaTeX template for a thesis. Quite nice and simple, and easily customizable.

The actual Tex source code is found here:

I like it as the source code is neat and clean, you can easily edit it if you know some basic Latex. Some other templates out there are quite complex and convoluted, it is hard to customize it.
