Scrapshot: The Sketchbook Bio

Another example of how presentation apps like Keynote and PowerPoint can be used to create beautiful family history projects. This “sketchbook bio” of my uncle is part photo album, part scrapbook and part biography. The completed project can be shared as a presentation, a PDF document, a video and even as individual images. The landscape layout displays beautifully on most tablets.

This simple sketchbook was created using Keynote – the presentation app included on new Macs and iPads – and the standard Letterpress theme. The body text font used is Monaco. The font used in the title is Enview.
