Professionally designed Word and PowerPoint templates are key to getting the most out of your branding. They mean all business documents are consistent and have the look and feel you want, every time.
But templates can be fiddly and time consuming to make and they aren’t always easy to use. That’s where Timplates comes in.
We’re experienced graphic designers who specialise in building creative, functional Word and PowerPoint templates that look great and are simple and intuitive to work with. We also build templates in Excel, Google Suite, Publisher, Keynote and Pages.
We can build templates from supplied artwork, we can design them from scratch or we can work with existing branding guidelines.
We understand clients’ needs and love finding ways to maximise functionality without compromising the design. We work closely with our clients to make sure we get it right first time, within your costs and budget.
We work with designers, brand managers and business owners who want their branding to remain consistent. We’ll ask you for some details, give you an overview of costs, get your design files if you have them and send you drafts for approval. After they’re delivered, we’re happy to make amendments to make sure the templates work in the way they’re supposed to.
Tell us what you need. We can design templates to match your brand guidelines, or we can use your supplied designs.
We’ll scope out the job and get back to you with a cost and a timeframe.
We can use your supplied artwork or design the templates for you. If we’re designing your templates, we’ll supply concepts of how they will look.
Once you approve the final artwork, we’ll build the templates, test the functionality and send them to you for approval
The job’s not done till you’re completely happy. We’ll wait for feedback to see how the templates work for the people who will be using them. Then we’ll make adjustments based on requirements.
As experienced graphic designers, we understand best practice in template design, we know what will and won’t work in Word or PowerPoint, and we can suggest what functionality might add value and efficiency. Check out our case studies to see how we’ve helped our clients ensure brand consistency, with easy-to-use templates built quickly and efficiently.
As designers with years of experience in the corporate design world, we tackle templates from a designer’s point of view. We understand the importance of good quality templates as part of any branding exercise.
The idea for Timplates started in the Melbourne corporate design world in the early 2000’s. We realised there was a need for designers with special expertise in building templates.
Timplates was born in 2012. Since then, we have designed and built literally thousands of templates in Word and PowerPoint. We know how to get the most out of these programs while remaining true to the original branding and design.
We work with a wide range of businesses, from corporates to SME’s, creating templates from scratch, reviewing and improving existing templates, or formatting large documents.
We also build templates for design studios as a third party supplier – making it easy to turn your designs into Word and PowerPoint templates that your clients will love.
Nothing is too hard for Timplates. Their responsiveness and attention to detail make them a pleasure to work with.
Outstanding! Great attention to detail and nothing is too much trouble. Professional right through to the end.
Timplates knew exactly what we needed and prepared our artwork, for the cost they quoted, in the time they estimated. Will definitely use them again.
I highly recommend Timplates. Their attention to detail, efficiency and professionalism is evident in the templates they've created for my clients.
We had a complex brief: 60+ page template to be built. Kylie and Tim were in constant communication via email and phone, and any amendments were made promptly. Very happy client. Thanks, Solterbeck.
Timplates were a pleasure to work with. Professional service and extremely efficient. We would highly recommend them.
Lovely design work, acute understanding of our brief, rapid turn-around and consummate professionalism. It has been a real pleasure working with you!
Timplates are extremely efficient, professional, flexible and willing. We were working on a branding project and needed a number of Powerpoint and Word templates in a very short timeframe and the team at Timplates did all they could to turn this around for us. I highly recommend them for anyone who is implementing branded template documents.
Traditionally, Word and Powerpoint are the enemy of the graphic designer. We can't design in them, we can't figure out the menus. Timplates take our static designs and turn them into Microsoft Office templates with the brand colours/fonts preset and macros built in, so our clients can easily create branded documents. We brief the job, from simple documents to advanced templates - they get back to us quickly with quotes, understand what we do, find a solution and deliver. Even when we have changes from the client they respond and get updated files back to us super quickly, so they fit in with our workflow. Our clients are always stoked, they're making us look good! Don't hesitate, these guys are the best.
Working with Timplates to develop the wide range of templates required for my organisation has been a wonderful experience. Their knowledge of Microsoft Office, and ability to translate our wide-ranging requirements into user friendly templates all within our set project timelines, has provided our organisation with exactly what we required for our brand refresh launch. Their ongoing support has also been fantastic, with no question too small. I highly recommend Timplates for any organisation large or small for their Office template requirements.
I've worked with Kylie and Tim on the development of two sets of corporate templates and they have been a pleasure to work with. We had a number of complex elements to build in and they were always responsive and communicative to work through multiple rounds of changes. Their knowledge of the MS Office suite is a godsend! Would certainly recommend them for jobs big or small, great value for money.
Thanks to Kylie and the Timplates team we now have an impressive and functional PowerPoint template which has attracted a lot of positive feedback. Kylie made sure we got exactly what we wanted and no request was too small. Overall a great experience.
Kylie and the designers delivered a great result for us! We had a set of templates made + laying out content on a PowerPoint for a company presentation that we often use. The Design Stage was great, we liked what they proposed (which can sometime be an interesting thing when it comes to creative projects!) Build Stage was great too, they helped us with a number of additional tweaks and changes to make sure we got the templates that we needed.
Dealing with Timplates was an absolute breeze, professional customer service, impeccable templates and no fuss billing. All our projects were completed on time and within budget. Their ability to seek out that extra bit of detail allowed us to plan better outcomes for our clients based on thorough industry knowledge. The thing that stands out the most is that when Timplates release a template it’s ready to go, it's been thoroughly tested and we never send them back for rework. I would have no issue recommending Timplates to any other business, they possess a high degree of professionalism with great technical knowledge and a can do attitude - an ideal partner of choice.
I had been looking for a creative template maker for years when I came across Timplates. I needed someone that would understand the creative and bespoke nature of our product offering and help us push traditional templates into a more dynamic space. Timplates were totally understanding of our needs, super fast and easy to work with. I have become very proud of our presentations now! Further to that, I love working with Timplates and the tools that they create.
After previously working with a small handful of other developers, I was so relieved to meet Kylie and Tim from Timplates. Right from the outset, their experience, flexibility and willingness to go above and beyond has meant that the work I’ve handed over and the relationships I’ve built with my clients has flourished. It’s great to work with a supplier who I can trust implicitly with quality of work and assurance of turn around.
We needed help on a branding project which included a complicated suite of Word and PowerPoint templates and we were referred to Timplates by an industry partner who had nothing but positive things to say. They were extremely efficient, professional and were able to give us detailed advice on technical limitations for us to be mindful of while designing. We highly recommend them for anyone who is implementing branded template documents.
Picturelab like working with nice people. Timplates are nice people! They happen to be damn good at what they do. Nothing is too hard for them, they never talk too much tech, and projects are all delivered as promised. It’s all easy. That's why we love working with them.
Over the past six months, our agency has undertaken several rebranding projects for a large corporate company. During this time, Timplates have been a wonderful resource, in creating a suite of various Word and Powerpoint templates, with easy to follow instructions for our client. In a fast-paced environment, they are professional, quick to respond and very thorough. Thanks to Tim & Kylie for keeping our designers sane during these busy times!
After being recommended Timplates to help us out with a quick turn around job, I was so impressed with their ability to cater to our needs while remaining flexible, cost effective and most importantly, lightning fast, that they are now a preferred supplier and trusted partner. I would recommend Timplates to anyone wanting to wow clients or partners, as their output is always professional, reliable, and to a very high standard.
he process of dealing with Timplates was very rewarding - the project was completed within the assigned time frame, to a very high standard and was reasonably priced. The team communication was outstanding and they responded quickly and accurately to our suggestions. I would recommend Timplates without hesitation to any business looking to develop stationery and report templates.
Timplates is based in the old Lonely Planet Building, which is at 90 Maribyrnong Street, Footscray, in Melbourne. It’s right on the Maribyrnong River.
