Top 10 Divi Child Themes
As Divi designers, we all pay attention to new Divi themes that push the boundaries of what Divi can do. Some very creative solutions and functionalities can be found in these Divi Themes:
Ally is a theme from DiviLover that presents many different types of information – services, features, portfolio, statistics – and have made them appear congruent by using a gradient overlay and animation. The polygon-shift animation for blurbs and blog posts is very effective in catching attention!
The hamburger menu on the featured image reminds the user to make use of a ‘Read More’ functionality right from the image.
A nice feature for those who purchase is a menu set of modules, already formatted, that can be added to your module Library and used right away in the theme.
Another great theme release from Monterey Premier, Avalon is a bold theme, with chunky font, button-on-button social icons, large photos and a consistent use of a diagonal section dividers that makes scrolling fun.
Even with all its chunky goodness, this theme presents services information in an organized fashion: the nicely sized team profiles are organized with the services portfolio; the Solutions page provides space for services + next steps + FAQ.
Avalon is the next best thing to a plug & play.
Divilife’s RoyalCommerce is a theme that is built around eCommerce, with a clean expression that makes the product the star. With store, sale and wishlist sections, it’s built for a store with many products and product attributes.
RoyalCommerce has four Demos with different color schemes and font choice. There is a Product Docs section that provides extensive instruction (video and PDF) for installing and setting up the theme.
This theme makes use of no less than seven plugins and widgets available from WooCommerce, so users should familiarize themselves with how WooCommerce works to make expert use of the theme.
Polygon is B3 Multmedia’s latest theme release, and provides a comprehensive solution for services businesses, with many types of modules to reach an audience. This theme uses a bit of ‘Ken Burns’ animation in the blurbs and slider, a refreshing change. Some icons also have a bit of animation, which is fun. The pricing guide is nicely styled and animated.
Polygon also includes an Events page that would tie in nicely with an events plugin for selling tickets or reservations.
Superfly’s Anthem is mind-blowing. From the very simple hamburger menu on the desktop page that expands to a full-page centered menu, the presentation starts with a show of themes-within-a-theme (black and white, artisan, journal), and then variations on sliders, layouts, gradients, header overlap, mosaic sections, and parallax motion.
There’s a very simple Shop page that does include eCommerce – perhaps added as an afterthought because it doesn’t have any of the theme’s style – but it’s there if you need to add shopping to your site.
It takes awhile to study everything presented in the Demo, but you’ll gather ideas along the way, for sure. It’s a theme that gets you excited to develop.
Clean and refreshing Gardenly, from DiviLover, this theme could be used right out of the box. Its presentation of services is uncomplicated, and the addition of great photos pulls the viewer in and calls them to read more or inquire.
The overlapping logo and fixed header add gravity to the parallax scroll, and the consistent colour scheme is reassuring.
This theme doesn’t go overboard on animation. The sub-menus, buttons, a few photos, that is all. This lends to the serenity of the theme and the viewer doesn’t feel rushed to explore.
Pacific Grove from Monterey Premier is a theme that makes good use of consistent elements to bring order to a services company presentation. Its reveal-navigation-on-scroll isn’t often used, and this use helps the viewer focus on and read through the page without wondering where to go next.
This theme offers one layout per type of page: project, blog, portfolio, etc., making it easy to use out of the box. And since you are a Divi designer, you will know how to rearrange or add modules as you need.
B3 Multimedia theme Bruno offers many unique options to make this multipurpose theme work for many types of businesses.
Some favorite features:
- Typewriter headline effect animation
- Services Blurbs with extra animation
- Fully Customizable Menu Button
- Testimonial Slider ($25)
- Preloader Settings
- Custom Popup Form
- Line Icons by ET and more…
This big bold theme for industry or industrial services/products is laid out well and presents information in a consistent fashion. It is not a theme with a lot of options – most of the pages are the same with the same modules – but it will work well out of the box for a client who needs to get set up quickly and doesn’t need too much artistry or tricky features. A nicely done, solid theme.
Another theme from Superfly company, Shado is a theme for a corporate services audience. The demo site is arranged in such a way you can explore variations on personnel modules, services blurbs, content toggles, and makes good use of gradients and animations. The two blog layouts are presented with a bit of animation, to create interest and clicking to read more.
One of the highlights of this theme are three very different home page layouts – each with some very clever designs and ideas.
So, Divi designers, gather your ideas, purchase themes and begin your mock-ups for your next project or client.
