Titles, subtitles & paragraphs

Brief and concise titles titles attract attention — they help your visitors find the information they're looking for. Dividing text into smaller sections using titles, subtitles, and paragraphs render your website substantially cleaner.

Titles, subtitles, or paragraps can be added to any columns using the button.

TIP

Within a single seciton, use titles and paragraphs of similar lengths — visually balanced content is easier to read.

Alignment, width & text layout

It is easier to read left-aligned text, since every line starts in the same place and thus the reader immediatelly knows where to look.

Editing your website by clicking

Center- (left-) aligned text is best used only for short blocks of text — lone titles and brief paragraphs.

Identically aligned text is immediatelly recognized as a group. Align paragraphs and their titles identically — it isn't recommended to use mixed alignment within a single column.

Wide sections of text are difficult to read. Optimally, a line should be 50—70 characters long. This makes continuing onto the correct line (and not skipping one) easier for the reader.

Afterwards, apply the color palette to your text.

Use the secondary color for your text if you're using a primary colored background (and vice versa).

For paragraphs on bright (dark) backgrounds, use a lighter (darker) shade of your title color.

Use your accent color for emphasised parts of text, for hyperlinks, and for buttons.

Consider readability! Your text will be difficult to read if its contrast with the background is too low.

Text style

A unified text style not only appears elegant, but also makes your website cleaner. For your titles (subtitles, paragraphs), try to use a single

All templates come with predefineds tyle — you don't have to worry about them.

Decoration

Your titles and subtitles can be further decorated. Nevertheless, it still holds that less is sometimes more — visual emphasis only really works when it's used sparingly.

TIP

Don't overfill your website with text! People prefer reading brief paragraphs to tedious pages of text.
