Variations

The Frontier template offers four style variations. Each one comes with a base palette of colors that work well together. With each variation you can use the existing colours and simply add content, or adjust the colors and design options as you’d like.

Playful: features teal and white tones and a simple font that makes for a modern look. Elegant: pared down completely with a white background, this one’s ready for lots of content. Sombre: Uses black and grey in the default section styles, and minimalist typography. Neutral: Showcases simple lines, plus white and charcoal colors in the sections.

Frontier template tips:

  • Widen your page in the content area to 100% to make your features fill the entire screen
  • To give your ‘news’ section a modern look, add a ‘Blog’ feature set to ‘Carousel view’ with 3 images per slide using a square ratio.
  • In the ‘Photo Gallery’ feature, choose the square option, and then set your column spacing to ‘0’. The images there will touch at the sides, giving your gallery a modern grid display.
