Before we dive into the tutorial, let’s take a look at the result we’re aiming to achieve on different screen sizes:
Let’s Start Creating!
Add New Regular Section
Start by opening a new page, switching over to Visual Builder and adding your first section. Without adding any rows or modules yet, open the section settings and add some padding:
- Top Padding: 0px
- Bottom Padding: 0px
Add New Row
Continue by adding a row using the following column structure:
Open the row settings next and add a background color to your entire row:
- Background Color: #f9f9f9
Column 1 Gradient Background
Then, add a subtle gradient background to your first column. This will help create the overlap of section titles between columns.
- Color 1: #0031c4
- Color 2: #00aeff
- Column 1 Gradient Direction: 125deg
Change the spacing of your row as well to make sure it takes up the entire width of the screen.
- Make This Row Fullwidth: Yes
- Use Custom gutter Width: Yes
- Gutter Width: 1
- Equalize Column Heights: Yes
Lastly, change the Spacing settings according to the different screen sizes:
- Top Padding: 0px
- Bottom Padding: 0px
- Column 2 Top Padding: 200px
- Column 2 Bottom Padding: 200px
- Column 2 Left Padding: 350px (Desktop), 50px (Tablet & Phone)
- Column 2 Right Padding: 50px
Add Section Title Text Module to Column 1
H2 Text Settings
Now that all row settings are in place, we can start adding modules. We’ll start with the first column. Here, the only module we’ll need is a Text Module. After adding the H2 content in the Content box, go ahead and change the H2 text settings:
- Heading 2 Font Weight: Ultra Bold
- Heading 2 Font Style: Uppercase
- Heading 2 Text Alignment: Center
- Heading 2 Text Color: #ffffff
- Heading 2 Text Size: 150px
- Heading 2 Line Height: 1.25em
- Heading 2 Text Shadow Vertical Length: -0.55em
- Heading 2 Text Shadow Color: rgba(0,255,255,0.25)
The overlap between column is different on desktop, tablet and phone. To create the overlap, we’ll make some changes to the Spacing settings of our Text Module:
- Top Margin: 325px (Desktop), 150px (Tablet & Phone)
- Bottom Margin: 325px, -120px (Tablet), -110px (Phone)
- Right Margin: -100% (Desktop), 0px (Tablet & Phone)
Last but not least, we’ll use a blend mode to create the difference in color for the text that shows up.
- Blend Mode: Overlay
Add Title Text Module to Column 2
H3 Text Settings
Let’s move on to the second column. There, the first module we’ll need is a title Text Module. After adding your H3 content, change the H3 text settings:
- Heading 3 Font Weight: Semi Bold
- Heading 3 Text Color: #00aeff
- Heading 3 Text Size: 60px
- Heading 3 Letter Spacing: -3px
Create some space by adding bottom margin next:
- Bottom Margin: 50px
Add Divider Module to Column 2
The second module we’ll need is a Divider Module. Open the Color settings and change the color to match with the color palette of the design:
- Divider Color: #00ffff
Then, modify the Sizing settings:
- Height: 56px
- Width: 75%
Add Description Text Module to Column 2
Continue by adding a description Text Module using the following text settings:
- Text Size: 17px
- Text Line Height: 1.3em
- Text Orientation: Justify
Change the Sizing settings next:
- Sizing: 70% (Desktop), 100% (Tablet & Phone)
Add some space below this module using a bottom margin as well:
- Bottom Margin: 50px
The last module we’ll need in this column is a Button Module. After adding the CTA, change the button settings:
- Use Custom Styles for Button: Yes
- Button Text Size: 17px
- Button Text Color: #ffffff
- Button Background Color: #00aeff
- Button Border Width: 0px
- Button Border Radius: 100px
- Button Letter Spacing: -1px
- Font Weight: Ultra Bold
- Font Style: Uppercase
And to give the button a cleaner look and feel, we’ll add some padding as well:
- Top Padding: 10px
- Bottom Padding: 10px
- Left Padding: 30px
- Right Padding: 30px
Last but not least, we’ll use a subtle box shadow to add a bit of depth to our section:
- Box Shadow Blur Strength: 54px
- Box Shadow Spread Strength: -8px
- Shadow Color: rgba(0,0,0,0.3)
Change All Copy
To create the second section, we’re simply going to clone the one we’ve already created and then, change all the copy.
Change Row Background Color
For this new section, we’re going to use another color palette. Start by changing the background color of your row.
- Background Color: #efefef
Change Column 1 Gradient Background
Then, choose another gradient background as well.
- Color 1: #5f00a8
- Color 2: #9000ff
Change Section Title Shadow Color
We’re matching the Text Shadow Color with our new color palette too:
- Heading 2 Text Shadow Color: rgba(255,0,255,0.24)
Change Section Title Spacing Settings
Depending on the length of the copy you’re using, you’ll need to play around with the negative right margin.
- Right Margin: -110% (Desktop)
Change Title Text Module Text Color
Then, change the Text Color of the title Text Module in column 2.
- Heading 3 Text Color: #9000ff
Change Divider Color
Likewise, make the divider color match the design.
- Color: #ff00ff
Change Button Background Color
To finish off, you’ll need to change the background color of the Button Module.
- Button Background Color: #9000ff
Now that we’ve gone through all the steps, let’s take a final look at the end result on different screen sizes:
