It’s March and Spring is finally coming around the corner bringing fresh colors and Sonic, our latest website release. Sonic comes with a clean but vibrant style, that features gradients on text and UI elements as well as layered background styles. A new topic and seven custom layouts cover the needs of any event website – in this case for a conference.
This website features a minimalistic, yet colorful style. Gradients are the main player here. They decorate backgrounds, imagery, buttons, borders as well as a number of typographic details. This is combined with large but delicate headings, box shadows and some nice details, which makes for a unique style.
Sonic presents a new feature of Genesis Pro, that gives you a lot more flexibility for your background styles. Instead of choosing between a background color and an image, you can now apply both at once. This allows you to create a variable and open layout through multiple layers of backgrounds, fixed or scrolling images and “flying” elements – as we did with Sonic.
Layouts & Topic
The topic of this month’s website is all about events and conferences. Each of the seven layouts included was created to provide everything you need to draft an informative and beautiful event website.
The Home page provides an overview of the essential information, like speakers, schedule and tickets, and at the same time previews the content of other pages. The Speakers page introduces conference speakers in an alternating panel layout and features a “Call for papers” section. On the Schedule page you will find the event’s itinerary displayed in a nice timeline with basic information on the talk and the speaker. The Location page provides an introduction to the event’s venue and hosting city through images, maps and references to public transport and accommodation. A list of sponsors and partners as well as an invitation to become a sponsor is presented on the Sponsors page. Under Tickets a pricing table, general information and contact details can be found. A little hidden page presents previous events with images that link to YouTube videos.
Genesis Pro 1.4 is going to be released shortly and a lot of exciting stuff is coming with it. Some of the new features already found their way into this release. As mentioned above, you can now combine images with section backgrounds. In addition to that, there is a new background color option for headings, allowing us to place gradients on text elements for this style. These are just some of the new additions in Genesis Pro 1.4.
The new Genesis Pro release will also contain new translations. A lot of languages already have been translated and some are almost done. If you see that yours still needs work, please consider helping us out.
