Elegant Themes offers unsurpassed flexibility and rapid wireframe web design

Beautiful WordPress websites grace us every day, and the Divi Theme forms many of the clean, minimalistic, easy-to-use designs we see.

With many paths to web design, why is Divi the only WordPress theme you need? How does it also allow real-time wireframes and mockups?

WordPress Is Huge

Did you know WordPress is the most popular website software on Earth? It powers over 27% of the entire internet as of 2018!

Of all the commercial themes available for WordPress, Divi has emerged as one of the most popular, lauded, and imitated.

The Elementor theme imitates its concepts, but it does not offer its execution.

Even WordPress itself now incorporates basic “Divi-like” features, dubbed Gutenberg, starting with version 5.0 released at the end of 2018.

What Is Divi?

What’s it all about? It’s the newer way to create WordPress websites in a visual way!

It’s intuitive enough to use for neophytes, yet powerful enough that professionals massively benefit from its meticulously crafted and revolutionary interface.

The days of years learning basic coding to build simple sites have passed. Divi offers an experience that anyone can benefit from, regardless of level of experience.

Let me be sparkling clear, Divi is a cornerstone tool of creating websites by professional web designers like myself!

Having experience with CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, and PHP only multiplies and builds on the power of the Divi’s tools.

It’s an Outstanding Replacement for All Wireframe and Mockup Tools

It is now possible to create beautiful, mobile-first, WordPress mockups and wireframes without the traditional Photoshop approach of the past.

Last year Elegant Themes added a website wireframe design mode! The real time visual wireframe building experience is seamlessly integrated.

With this new way of working, it saves designers valuable time, money, and resources. Plus, it produces not equal, but superior design results than in the past.

Why would an organization spend time on static mockups when they can rapidly build working prototypes?

Nor can Photoshop and similar tools represent mobile and tablet views in real time.

In my opinion, using Photoshop to create mockups today is analogous to using a slide ruler for math.

Additionally, Elegant Themes, the maker of Divi, produces hundreds of professional templates to use in part or whole to fast track your designs.

These layouts range from complete websites to specialty pages for an enormous array of use cases.

This is why Divi has become the go to tool for many industry leaders. Truly, the only limit in the use of Divi is the imagination of the user!

Even if WordPress is not your final project destination, all the design and layout work can be achieved with ease using Divi.

Divi Is Easy-To-Use

If you have ever played with LEGO kits, you will feel immediately comfortable using the interface. It’s that straightforward.

Using a modular building approach, one can execute designs entirely in the visual builder.

Divi works with modules that allow you to add gorgeous functionality for almost any purpose or use case.

User-friendly visual design tools are the centerpiece of Elegant Themes’ ideology.

Built-in design elements include email opt-in forms, portfolios, social follows, sliders, headers, shops, number counters, testimonials, videos, timers, and much more!

All the tools required for creating the most complex web designs are on offer to design professionals like myself, saving tremendous time.

Because the theme runs on WordPress, it has the power to do everything that the content management platform achieves.

Developers can even tap into the tremendous power of the Divi API for endless programming uses. This negates the naysayers who believe Divi’s a “front-end” only technology.

A Huge Community of Support

An amazing product and experience is meaningless without the support of the company behind it, and community that uses it.

No theme offers more examples, layouts, tutorials, freely available code, Facebook groups, and videos.

Whatever the design goal is, someone has a tutorial to help you do it.

Elegant Themes alone offers an endless number of video and blog tutorials to help you build sublime websites that you’ll be proud to show off.

Plus, they offer beautiful new layouts every week along with a litany of videos.

What Have You Done Using Divi?

As a professional website designer and online marketer, I have switched to using it for almost all of my WordPress needs.

It even works tremendously well with WooCommerce, the primary WordPress e-commerce solution.

As a WordPress web designer and developer, Divi is always my first choice for any project.
