Elegant Themes offers unprecedented flexibility and rapid wireframe web design with Divi

Divi 4 is coming October 14th, 2019, with amazing new features to customize WordPress site-wide! Read on to learn why Divi is already the only theme you need!

Beautiful WordPress websites grace us every day. 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? Moreover, how does Divi work with real-time wireframe mockups?

Firstly, 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.

Moreover, WordPress offers endless extensibility with plugins, themes, and the option for custom coding.

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

Similarly, the Elementor theme may imitate many of Divi’s concepts. However, it does not offer its execution, nor the genius Divi visual builder.

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

Yes, WordPress is becoming more like Divi, not the other way around.

What Is Divi?

Divi offers a better way to create WordPress websites. Importantly, it utilizes an intuitive visual builder, unlike its competitors!

Above all, the visual builder is easy to use for neophytes. Yet it’s powerful enough that professionals massively benefit from its meticulously crafted and revolutionary experience.

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 multiply and build 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. It negates the naysayers who believe Divi’s a “front-end” only technology.

A Huge Community of Support

An amazing product and experience are meaningless without the support of the company behind it, and the 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.

Moreover, they offer beautiful new layouts every week, along with a litany of helpful 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.
