1 Choosing your Colours
There are three key colours to choose:
The Main colour: this is the main identity of your website, so add your main brand colour.
The Page Title colour, which needs to provide a good contrast with your background images.
The Highlight colour: this is the colour for any links within your website, so you want to make sure it is distinctive from the rest of the content.
The Body colour: this is the most neutral colour for larger areas of text. Avoid pure black, and aim for a dark tone of your brand colours.
2 Choosing your Typefaces
There are three categories where you can choose your font:
The Site Title: this shows wherever you choose to have a Site Title – on the Hero Image, and/or in the Navigation Bar. This can be the most eye-catching choice.
The Headings: this shows in all your headings, which will be in your Main Colour.
The Body: this is for your larger areas of text, which will be in your Body Text Colour.
To select your colours, go to “Customizer/Typography”.
Tip: choose a serif and a sans-serif option to contrast between the Headings and the Body.
