Google Docs Templates Directory

Google released a layout templates directory for Google Docs*, the application suite consisting of Google Documents, Spreadsheets and Presentations (Google’s kind of web-based light-weight Word, Excel and PowerPoint).

*You can also reach the directory via by clicking New -> “From template”.
