New WordPress Design Course
We just published a brand new training course on designing sites in WordPress. It covers essential design theory and how to apply it to your own projects built with Toolset.
You can find the new WordPress Design Course in our documentation. Here’s what you’ll find in the course.
Introduction to site designing with Toolset
A great looking website design is made up of different parts, and these all work together to create your final look.
You can control some of these in the Customizer’s Site Identity tab and add:
- Site Title
- Favicon (Site Icon)
Last but not least, there’s also plenty of helpful tips about how you can create and design a custom Logo or Favicon yourself.
Website typography and colors
Design your site colors using a color palette, and style your textual content using proper typography to get your users’ attention and improve readability.
