Conseiller Child Theme for Divi
Conseiller is designed for freelance writers and consultants, giving you a way to present your work experience and portfolio with a bold graphic style.
The Home Page – an Overview of Your Services
Animated Particle Background
Add visual interest to your header with an animated particle background. I have chosen a bubble effect, and this will be in place “out of the box” for your site. However, you can also design your very own particle background by visiting http://vincentgarreau.com/particles.js/ and using the interactive tool to build your own background. Instructions are included with the theme on how to replace the theme particle background with your own.
Links to your most recent case studies gives people the opportunity to dive deeper into your skills and understand how you can potentially help them with similar projects.
Bold Full Page Intro
Draw people into your site with a bold full page intro screen with call to action. Use a brief headline and description to reach visitors with the key benefit your services can have for them, followed by a call to action button leading them to your contact page.
Slide In Service Bars
Provide an overview of your services with these slide in bars with unique hover effect. The icons are included with the theme for your use – and their greyscale colouration will adapt to any colour scheme. Get Started link makes it easy for people to contact you when your service description connects with them.
Many people who offer corporate communication services may not be able to show samples of work they have done for their coporate clients, as the work may be proprietary to the client. So a blog is a great way to showcase your writing style and talent. Lkewise, as a consultant, writing about the subject you consult in allows you to establish and demonstrate your authority in the field.
The About Page – Your Online Resume
Photo and Bio
People do business with people. Including your photo and bio allows them to get to know you better, and see how your skills and strengths match their needs.
The unique animated timeline allows you to include your resume and highlights of your career.
The About page is a great place to add some testimonials. As people are reading about your skills and experience, they will also be interested in seeing what clients (or former employers) have to say about your work for them.
The typewriter icon is included with the child theme – and its greyscale colour will blend if you choose to change the colour scheme of your site.
The Case Study layout gives you the opportunity to present some of your previous projects.Typical portfolio layouts are designed for visual projects (e.g. for photographers, graphic or web designers) and tend to showcase a lot of images. Consulting or writing projects are not so visual, and this layout presents a portfolio item in a more traditional case study format. The opening paragraph can include an “executive summary” overview of the project. Space is allowed for an image to represent the project. For a website related project, it could be a screenshot from the website, a print communication project could include a thumbnail image of the product. If no specific image is available, you could use a stock image that represents the type of project it is. Optionally, you can include a link to the product, e.g. the website or pdf copy of a brochure. In many cases, corporate communication projects do not result in publicly available documents – your work may be proprietary to the company, in which case you can just remove the text module that would contain the link. The number counter modules can show results achieved from the project in a visual way.
The Challenges section allows you to describe the scope of the project – what were the problems the organization had with their previous solution, or what were the opportunities with a new venture?
The Solution section can describe how you solved the problems and/or capitalized on the opportunities.
If your case study has resonated with the viewer, and they can see that you can help them with a similar project, the Call to Action section at the bottom makes it easy for them to access your contact page to get in touch with you.
