So now we have an Hexagon to add the image we want, now we need to add another hexagon to give design to this cover and this is pretty easier: Go to “Insert” now go to “Shapes” and select Hexagon.

Add this shape in the middle of the slide as big as the previous one, go to the arrow that appears above the hexagon, then turn 45° to the right or left.

Stand again in “Slide Master” and go to the third slide. Right there you are going to make six placeholder to insert pictures.

In case you are asking how I create the second, and third and next rectangle without going to “Insert Placeholder” again. I just use “Ctrl C + Ctrl V”. Nothing special, it’s not magic :(.

To add Title and text in this slide, click on the title’s box and insert a placeholder for text. Then arrange them so that they don’t remain above the images.

As you can see the previous pic, it’s exactly the same. But in this case, we are going to add just three placeholder for pics (one in rectangle and the other two as a square). One title, two placeholder for text and one rectangle with color.

While you are putting the placeholder, i’m going to show you the next part.

5.2.1. How to put the rectangle with color.

Go “Insert” > “Shaspes” select Rectangle and draw between the two placeholder pics that you have already made.

Change rectangle color going to Home > “Shape Fill” and select the color you like the most. For this template we select a custom color.

Now Insert Title and placeholder text, you will have to change to white color the text that goes over the rectangle, going to “Home”, selecting the text and choosing white in the font color option.

When the picture is on the slide, rotate it 45° to the right,
and from the ends, make it smaller and move to the center.

With the phone in the middle, you will only have to add three placeholder for pics as we saw it before. 2 behind the phone and the other one in the phone’s screen.

After that, press Ctrl+ X to the phone pic… But why if I just put it on there? because if you let it on the “Slide Master” you will not be able to edit it later, anyway you will paste later. Let’s see!
