Click on the Design tab. Then click Create a new theme (or select it in the dropdown).
Customize the look and feel of your slides, including typefaces and colors. (Feel free to repeat brand colors if you want to use a more constrained color palette).
Upload a logo if you'd like it to appear on every slide.
Only .jpeg, .png, and .gif file types are supported. Use a file converter if you need.
Make sure your logo's background is transparent (or matches the slide background color) and that there is minimal whitespace around the logo itself.
Click Create theme to save your theme.

Click Save theme when you're done making edits.
