When you have a bunch of information to share with your visitors, and you want to make them see the bigger picture, using infographics is highly recommended. They make absorbing information a little easier because of their structure and interactivity. The first thing that pops into mind when needing an infographic is using Photoshop to create one and add it to an Image Module afterwards. However, this limits us. It, for instance, takes away the possibility for visitors to copy and paste a certain part of your infographic.
Luckily, you can do all kinds of things with the Divi Builder and creating a Blurb infographic is one of them. In this post, we’re going to show you how to create such an infographic in an easy and fast way.
Before diving into the tutorial, let’s take a closer look at the Blurb infographic we’ll show you how to recreate, step by step.
How to Create a Blurb Infographic with Divi
Download This Tutorial’s Free Illustration
To help you bring this tutorial to a good end, we’re going to provide you with the illustration that is being used in this tutorial for free. The illustration we’re providing you with is actually from our Design Agency Layout Pack. When you download the image resources below, you can unzip the folder and locate the image called writer-illustration_content-strategy.png to follow along.
Add a New Standard Section
Start by adding a new standard section to an existing page or a new page. Then, open the section settings and add the following gradient background:
- First Color: rgba(45,45,45,0.3)
- Second Color: rgba(45,0,11,0.81)
- Gradient Type: Radial
- Radial Direction: Center
- Start Position: 24%
- End Position: 23%
Switch over to the background image tab, add the illustration you’ve downloaded at the beginning of this post and use the following settings:
- Background Image Size: Actual Size
- Background Image Position: Center
- Background Image Repeat: No Repeat
- Background Image Blend: Hue
Lastly, disable the section on phone and tablet. Later on this post, we’ll create a section that matches tablets and mobiles as well.
Add 5 Standard Rows with Different Column Structures
We’ll be needing 5 different standard rows within the standard section. We’ll go over each one separately.
The first row you add needs one column only.
Within the Spacing subcategory of the row you’ve just created, make sure that all of the custom padding options are set to ‘0px’. This will make sure there’s no space between our rows.
The second row needs three equal columns. We’ll be only be using two columns further down this post.
Again, make sure to add ‘0px’ to all of the custom padding options.
The third row we’ll be adding needs three equal columns as well.
Unlike the second row, we’re going to enable the ‘Make This Row Fullwidth’ option within the Sizing subcategory.
This row needs ‘0px’ for all of the custom padding options as well.
The fourth row is the same as the second row and needs three equal columns.
Once again, make sure the top, right, bottom and left padding are set to ‘0px’.
Last but not least, we’ll be needing the same column structure as we did for the first row; one column.
And a custom padding of ‘0px’ for all the options.
Add Blurb Module
Choose an Icon
We’ll recreate the blurb module once and clone it afterwards. This saves you a bunch of time and allows you to make quick modifications. Start by adding a Blurb Module to the first row, enable the ‘Use Icon’ option within the Content tab and select an icon of choice.
Then, move on to the Design tab, select an Icon Color of choice and use the following settings along with it:
- Image/Icon Placement: Top
- Use Icon Font Size: Yes
- Icon Font Size: 27px
Next, open the Text subcategory, use a ‘Light’ Text Color and enable center Text Orientation.
Move on to the Title Text subcategory and make use of the following settings next:
- Title Font: Default
- Title Font Weight: Regular
- Title Text Alignment: Center
- Title Text Size: 18px
- Title Text Color: #FFFFFF
- Title Line Height: 1em
Scroll down the same subcategory and add some text shadow as well:
- Title Text Shadow Horizontal Length: 0em
- Title Text Shadow Vertical Length: 0em
- Title Text Shadow Blur Strength: 0.6em
- Title Text Shadow Blur Strength: rgba(255,255,255,0.94)
Then, open the Body Text subcategory and use the following settings for it:
- Body Font: Default
- Body Font Weight: Regular
- Body Text Size: 14px
- Body Text Color: #cccccc
- Body Line Height: 1.7em
Lastly, open the Sizing subcategory and apply a Content Width of ‘282px’.
Clone Blurb Module 7 Times
Place in Following Columns
Once you’re done modifying the Blurb Module, you can go ahead, clone it 7 times and place it in the columns marked in the print screen below.
Obviously, you’ll want to make each one of the Blurb Modules unique. Go ahead, change the content and choose another icon within the Content tab.
Change Icon Color
Change the Icon Color within the Design tab according to your needs for each one of the Blurb Modules as well.
Clone Section for Mobile & Tablet
Remove Gradient Background & Background Image
Your desktop version is finished. Now it’s time to start creating the tablet and phone version. Start by cloning the section you’ve created, open the section settings and remove the gradient background along with the background image.
Add Background Color
While you’re in the Background subcategory, add ‘rgba(45,0,11,0.81)’ as your background color.
Add Image Module
Next, you’ll need to add the illustration, which you’ve download at the beginning of this post, to an Image Module.
Last but not least, disable the section on desktop instead of on phone and tablet.
