1. Find Suitable Templates Easily With New Interface and Powerful Search
We have redesigned the whole interface from scratch. This modern, beautiful interface is built with React.js, it’s lightning-fast, and it is a delight to use.
As you already know, we offer hundreds of templates to choose from.
All of these templates are designed by professionals to be high-converting and pixel-perfect on all devices.
And now with new features in Starter Templates 3.0, these hundreds of templates create millions of possibilities for you to create the perfect website.
Finding the right template to start building your website is important. Starter Templates give you multiple options to find the perfect design.
The quickest way to find a template is by searching for it. We’ve made dramatic improvements to the search feature, significantly improving the search logic. Now you will see real-time results as you type.
Apart from search, the most popular categories are listed prominently, so you can quickly filter templates. You also have the other filtering and sorting options to go through all the templates.
2. Visualize Your Website Branding Before Importing Templates: Try Logo, Color Palettes and Typography Presets On The Go
Good branding is important to increase the value of your business and your website is a primary source to represent that brand.
Starter Templates 3.0 brings powerful options where you can add your logo, choose from different color palettes, and select typography before starting building your website.
This allows you to see how your chosen branding will look with the template before spending time importing and customizing.
This way you can have personalized and unique template designs while retaining control to edit anytime you want.
Adding Your Logo
Once you’ve selected a template, it’s time to unleash the power of Starter Templates to personalize your website.
The first step will let you visualize your website with your logo. Just click the highlighted area, upload your logo, and you’ll instantly see how it will appear on your website.
If you don’t have a logo just yet, you can skip this step by clicking the skip option and upload your logo anytime later.
Choosing the Right Color Palette
One of the biggest challenges people face while building their website is choosing the right color palette. As you can probably understand, it can easily make your website look great or amateurish.
Let’s see how Starter Templates 3.0 solves that problem.
Starter Templates give you a choice of different color palettes to choose from.
Not just that! You can instantly preview how your website will look with selected colors by just clicking on any of the color palettes.
Choosing the right colors is just one piece of the puzzle. Customizing your website with these colors is another. This alone can take dozens of hours, even for professionals.
Starter Templates are smart. If you decide to make changes to your website’s colors later, you just have to make the change in a single location, and your entire website will reflect those new colors, instantly.
This single feature will save time and help you create that perfect website much faster.
If you don’t want to make the choice now, just choose the default palette and go to the next step. You can always customize your colors later.
Choosing the Right Typography
After choosing colors, the next big hurdle people face when building a website is choosing great-looking fonts. Starter Templates help you with that as well.
It will recommend different font combinations for your website. Just like the colors, you can instantly preview these fonts by clicking any of the available combinations. Once again, Starter Templates 3.0 makes things simple for you and saves time.
You still have the option to choose fonts later.
3. Robust Website Builder for Quick and Easy Importing
We invested a lot of time and effort in optimizing the importer. Now it is more intuitive and faster.
By chance, due to server limitations, if the import fails, it would intuitively prompt with suggestions to resolve it.
Saving you time and effort.
Continuous and never-ending improvement is a core part of our cultural DNA!
Starter Templates 3.0 is just a first step in making your website design workflow easy and fast.
