screenshot of page from beamer presentation

I am trying to identify what theme (if any) was used to create this beamer presentation. This is the entire file.

    Probably an own definition/own theme. What exactly do you want to imitate? – TeXnician Jun 15 '17 at 14:29
  • That was my suspicion... I'd like to get that same drop shadow effect, but I don't know an elegant way of doing it. (maybe colorbox can do something similar? ) – Mira G Jun 15 '17 at 14:33

    Have a look at tcolorbox. It has a great manual. Just search for "shadow". – TeXnician Jun 15 '17 at 14:35
  • Thanks, I might play around with that. I like the minimal look of this document though compared to most of what's common with tcolorbox – Mira G Jun 15 '17 at 14:53

    It looks like seminar slides with shadowbox-es (from fancybox) – Ignasi Jun 15 '17 at 15:16

As it seems that OP is only worried by the shadowbox, here there are two ways of doing them. What I think is the original shadowbox from fancybox package and a tcbox (from tcolorbox) trying to mimic them (both work with beamer):


    sharp corners,
    shadow={1.5mm}{-1.5mm}{0mm}{red, opacity=1},



\tshadowbox{\texttt{tcolorbox tshadowbox}}

{\color{red}\shadowbox{\texttt{fancybox shadowbox}}}

  • Thanks! Probably should have figured this out myself, but your solutions are very nice. – Mira G Jun 15 '17 at 17:17

Based on the pdf properties (https://i.stack.imgur.com/94t0C.png) I doubt that this was made with beamer, but you can easily do something similar with beamer:



\begin{tcolorbox}[halign=center, drop shadow=red,enhanced,colback=white,colframe=red, sharp corners=all]

\setbeamertemplate{itemize item}[circle]
\setbeamercolor{itemize item}{fg=black}
\setbeamerfont{title in head/foot}{size=\small}

\setbeamertemplate{headline}{\vskip0.7em\usebeamerfont{title in head/foot}\hspace*{1em}\insertshorttitle\hfill\insertshortauthor\hfill\insertframenumber\hspace*{1em}\vskip0.7em}



\item content
