Today I’d like to introduce you to my Showit template shop! This shop has been in the works for some time and I’m so excited (even a little scared) to share it with you here!
“Perfectionism is hiding” – what powerful words those are by the incredible Seth Godin. Being a creator is scary. You put your heart and soul into something then release it out into the world for others to see. But holding on to your art, hiding your talents and not sharing them with those that truly need them is scary too.
This first batch of websites in my Showit template shop is very special to me. So, let’s meet these beauties already!
This pretty little layout was hiding on the cloud for over a year before I was finally ready to share her with you…
While it may look like a simply styled website, it’s actually the product of a lot of soul searching and personal development work that came from my time with the incredible coaching team over at Talent Collective.
Created during a time when I was feeling anything but confident – I hadn’t booked a new client in months, I felt like an imposter and was on the verge of giving up. And while doing everything I could to try to find work, I spent all my extra free time creating this website – and two others – honing my craft and proving to myself that I was capable and worthy.
This site is inspired by the Italian tradition of Passeggiata – a social ritual when everyone gathers for a gentle evening stroll in the main piazza. Confidently dressed in your best, it’s a time to catch up with friends, to see and be seen.
Are you looking to make a lasting impression with your website? This is the website for you!
Dark, moody and winter inspired, say hello to Inverno – the 2nd of my website templates in the shop!
The Italian word for winter, the Inverno website template is cool in tones but romantic to the core. Perfect for photographers, wedding professionals, florists and more, this site is a west coast romance just waiting for visitors to fall in love with your brand.
One of my favourite pages is the Inverno blog layout. It tells a visual story by featuring picture category links and landscape photography for your blog images.
Where stunning images are married with eloquent headings & text excerpts. Capture your audience and get them wanting more with Inverno!
Figurati – this Italian word can be translated to mean imagine and used in conversation as my pleasure.
Well, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Figurati – the third website template now available in my shop. Designed with creative service professionals in mind, this website will get your clients imagining how great it will be to work with you!
The portfolio page in Figurati is one of my favourites. When a simple photo carousel just won’t do, I’ve elevated the gallery page using a case study approach. The result is a stunning project gallery including space for photos, project specs or stats, subheadings and a description.
This page takes your work and gives you space to tell the story behind it. What were the struggles? How did you solve them? What was the outcome?
These are the details that will convince others you are perfect for the job. Portfolio pages should be more than pretty pictures – tell your story beautifully with the Figurati website template.
