One of the great advancements in web design is the advent of modern tools, like our very own Pro, that allow you to quite literally build in the browser. This significantly improves efficiency, allowing you to bypass one whole step in the process (bye bye Photoshop). Now you can iterate on the design right in the very tool you are building your website, and that is powerful!
Pro is uniquely special in this regard, and in many ways is the future of WordPress themes. And we know…that’s a bold statement…so let us prove it to you! In today’s video, we continue our exploration of a few classic pieces of cover art design from the Blue Note Records archives talking specifically about John Coltrane’s 1958 release, “Blue Train.”
We’ll recreate this completely in Pro and cover detailed use of the Background Size and Background Position properties, as well as using Mix Blend Mode to “filter” our image just like you might in Photoshop…but without the Photoshop, directly in the browser. Additionally, we’ll discuss the use of CSS filters to further explore adding contrast and brightness to our images. Finally, we’ll dig into using the CSS Grid layout system to block out our album design, and use CSS transforms to creatively manipulate text…and break a few rules along the way.
Let’s talk advanced web design.
In this first video of a three part series, we’ll be taking a deep dive into the cover designs of Blue Note Records and see how we can apply some of the lessons we learn to the world of web design with good ol’ HTML and CSS. We’ll be exploring creative uses of CSS filters, the CSS grid spec, mix blend mode, image layering, and so much more to recreate these timeless classics directly in the browser…no Photoshop needed.
One of the really interesting things about Blue Note is that while they produced some of the most iconic pieces of music in the jazz genre, they were almost equally as well known for their creative and bold album covers. These sophisticated works combined creative typography, clever photography, striking color combinations, and modern grid layouts in ways never seen before. If you’d like to follow along with us in this series, check out our Design Cloud asset based on the ideas that we are going to be exploring: https://demo.theme.co/designcloud/con…
You can use that web design template to deconstruct these ideas further and implement similar techniques on your own website if it fits your creative vision.

As a case study, we’ll explore the Mega Menu Prefab Elements as a jumping off point to get you creating your own custom mega menu designs in no time (we’ll also cover a few auto responsive tricks and tips along the way).

From simple to advanced, effects can add just the right touch to your website. In this video, we do an in-depth walkthrough of a more advanced interaction effect that requires us to break down our design into multiple Elements that will be chained together to create a uniform look and feel that would otherwise be impossible with just one layer. Follow along as we learn more about effect deconstruction and how you can use it in our website builders.
