    Sketch 40

    Latest version of the vector drawing tool

    Sketch is great because it is a lot faster to use than Adobe Illustrator for most things and is fairly powerful. Plus, you can just copy and paste into Keynote or Powerpoint. It's not perfect, but it satisfies my desire for more power than either of those two products.

  4. You might be thinking that this isn't quite what you were looking for but Keynote is incredible. A pitch deck should be simple and to the point. My most recent pitch was made using keynote and we kept everything to a minimum. Black text on a white background with each slide only having a title (and a subtitle on one slide). Play around and don't be afraid to ask around either on what looks good. I personally have always found the clean and simple slides most affective as that directs attention to you, the speaker. People invest not in ideas but in the people behind the ideas.

    Basically, what Tyler said. You need a tool that puts together great visuals and copy in a smart and straightforward way. It doesn't have a lot of features, bells, and whistles. But it does let you put together your visuals and data together in a no-nonsense way

    Keynote is still the most reliable and expressive tool for building presentations. It's a bit fiddly and has a relatively deep learning curve, but it's still what I rely on for my own presentations.

    This is an unconventional way to do this, but it is quite efficient and direct in communicating the point across. Check the medium post around this: https://medium.com/swlh/open-let...

    This might sound old school, but even with advancements in Sketch and Keynote, InDesign really is the best tool for typography and refined layouts. It's made for publishing so it's super easy to set up grids, master templates, set type and character styles, baseline grids etc. However, it's not as advanced with video embeds or motion. So I'll often layout all of my decks in InDesign and then export PDFs, drop them into Keynote and add animations, prototypes etc. Other layout tools aren't advanced enough for the level of finesse I'm looking for on the type and layout side of things.

    Genially

    The tool that brings content to life

    I use Genially. It is so easy to use, interactive slides without having to code make a great deck. Not only is it impressive but it made you look like you have really put a lot of efforts in. You can import most of your photos/ media etc or use genially one; they integrated with several sources like giphy unsplash, pixel, Behance, dribble or more; plus you can export your slides to HTML, they will provide you with HTML I-frame codes and honestly the works looks pretty damn impressive and really easy to use. Check out their templates preview, it is damn impressive and you can use it right away. Other than that, I recommend keynote, slidebeans, or past.
