These past few weeks in Clip Art, A Memoir—”we—™ve been mourning the passing of our favorite old 90s presentation staples.

While it—™s all good fun to laugh at this well-meaning office art stockpile, what is the point if we can—™t provide a solution to their present-day uselessness?

We searched inwardly: —œGhostRanch, how do we prove that we—™re better than clip art? How do we show that images like this are still relevant in sales decks?— After all, as a presentation design company, we pride ourselves on our own clever ability to help communicate important ideas through imagery.

So for each piece of clip art we—™ve buried in the RIP Clip Art graveyard, we—™re going to resurrect with the same idea, conveyed with a much more modern prowess. In short, we—™re giving clip art the GhostRanch treatment.

It will be an extreme makeover of the —œInsert > Image— syndrome! 

A —œBefore and After— for a shiny new sales deck! 

An —œEat This, Not That!— for PowerPoint!

You get the picture. Now, get excited!
