In this example, one of the styles in the 3-D category is applied, called Cartoon. It does even more to make the shapes seem slightly lifted off the slide. The main shapes have a bevel and highlight on either end. And the long shapes have a similar highlight all along the top and bottom. The dark color of the main shapes is uniform, suggesting a flatter, shinier finish, unlike the more gradient, or gradual, color in the first style.
You'll see the full range of styles in a layout when you do the practice session. But in brief, here are some things you'll find within styles:
- Color-shade variations that stick within the current color range.
- Different treatment of shape fills and borders.
- Varying dimensionality: shapes can look flat to rounded to fully dimensional (two-sided) to tilted.
- Visual effects such as reflection, shadows, and glows.
