Let’s Get Started!
Change Divider Colors in Illustrator
Open Illustrator File in Downloaded Folder
In the first part of this tutorial, we’re going to prepare the module dividers we need. In the download folder, you can find the module dividers for one specific color palette. However, if you want to use another color palette, you’ll need to create the module dividers you need using the illustrator file that you can find in the download folder.
Choose Module Divider Style, Unlock Layer & Enable Visibility
Once you open the illustrator file, go ahead and select the divider of your choice in the layers tab. Unlock the layer and enable the visibility option so you can get started right away.
Click on Module Divider & Change Color
Now, depending on how many modules you want to create a divider for, the number of module dividers you need can differ. To recreate the example we’ve shown you at the beginning of the post, for instance, we’ll need the module divider in four different colors. Start off with the first one by changing the divider color into white.
- Divider Color: #ffffff
Export PNG Module Divider for Web
Once you’ve changed the color, you can continue by saving the image module as a PNG image file for web.
Repeat Steps for Each Color Needed (x4)
As mentioned before, you’ll need various module dividers. Repeat the previous steps for each one of the colors.
- Color 1: #ffffff
- Color 2: #2759f6
- Color 3: #97adf4
- Color 4: #b2ceff
Create Divi Design
Once you’ve saved all the module dividers, it’s time to switch over to Divi! The end result we’re creating will look like this on the backend:
Add New Section
Add a new page or open an existing one and add a regular section to it.
Add New Row
Continue by adding a new row using the following column structure:
Without adding any modules yet, open the row settings and make some changes to the sizing settings.
- Make This Row Fullwidth: Yes
- Use Custom Gutter Width: Yes
- Gutter Width: 1
Add Image Module to Column 1
Upload White Module Divider
The first module we’ll need, in column 1, is an Image Module. Upload the first module divider that you can find in the download folder or pick the one you’ve modified to your own color palette.
Then, add a background color to the Image Module. This color needs to match the background color of any module comes next.
- Background Color: #2759f6
Then, go to the sizing settings and enable the ‘Force Fullwidth’ option.
- Force Fullwidth: Yes
Add Blurb Module to Column 2
The second module we need in column 1 is a Blurb Module. Start by adding some content of choice.
Then, select an icon of choice.
Continue by adding the same background color you’ve used for the module divider Image Module.
- Background Color: #2759f6
Next, go to the icon settings and make some changes.
- Icon Color: #ffffff
- Image/Icon Placement: Top
- Use Icon Font Size: Yes
- Icon Font Size: 50px
Modify the text settings as well.
- Text Orientation: Center
- Text Color: Light
Title Text Settings
Change the appearance of the title text too.
- Title Font Weight: Ultra Bold
- Title Font Style: Uppercase
And create some space for the module by using custom padding.
- Top Padding: 50px
- Bottom Padding: 50px
- Left Padding: 50px
- Right Padding: 50px
Clone Image Module 3 Times & Blurb Module Twice
Once you’re done modifying the first Image Module (containing the module divider) and the Blurb Module, you can go ahead and clone the Image Module three times and the Blurb Module twice. This will give the following result in the backend:
Place Duplicates in Right Order
Change the order of the duplicates to make sure you start with an Image Module that is followed up by a Blurb Module, as shown below:
Change Blurb Module Duplicates’ Background Colors
Then, change the background colors of the Blurb Modules.
- Blurb Module #2: #97adf4
- Blurb Module #3: #b2ceff
Change Module Divider in Image Module
Open the first duplicate Image Module and upload the second module divider you’ve created (or choose one that you can find in the download folder).
Change Module Divider Image Module Background Color (Match with Next Blurb Module’s Background Color)
After you’ve uploaded the new module divider, you’ll need to change the background color of that Image Module as well. Make sure you match this color with the background color of the Blurb Module that comes next.
- Module Divider #2: #2759f6
Repeat Steps for Two Remaining Divider Modules
Repeat the previous steps for the two remaining module dividers in the column and you’re done!
- Module Divider #3 Background Color: #97adf4
- Module Divider #4 Background Color: #b2ceff
