  • Elegant: The elegant variation includes earthy brown tones and a white page background, which is perfect for a country or bluegrass band. The elegant variation is calm, inviting, and classic.

  • Neutral: The neutral variation features contrasting black and white colors throughout your page elements, with sans-serif fonts which is great for text-heavy content. This variation would be perfect for an ambient or classical musician.

  • Sombre: The sombre variation uses serif fonts for a contemporary look. Featuring a black page background, bold white titles, and blue accents, this variation is great for a cover band or rock and roll project.

'Nosi' template tips:

  • Try setting an opaque menu bar background color and toggle off the separate navigation so your menu will float over your header image.
  • Adjust your header image height to 10% so a small strip of your image appears behind your site title. Then, choose a complementary page background image.
  • Decrease your page width so your page background image becomes a major focus of your website. This works especially well if you add upcoming album artwork as your page background image.
