As a creative guy I didn't think that I would learn so many ways to come up with new ideas and innovations. It opened my eyes and i'm going to review my way of working.

Kasper Water

I enjoyed the Design Thinking Course as I got familiar with concepts that I did not know before and will now implement on my day to day work.

Sebastiaan Ioannis Petropoulos

I really enjoyed the Design Thinking course from Growth Tribe. Although I already had experience thanks to my background in the startup world, it's great to have proof of my knowledge and understanding as I progress in my career. The modules are very well laid out, and it's easy to learn on the go (eg on the train).

Phoebe Dodds

I had worked with concepts that overlaps with design thinking before, but never took the time to dive deeper into the framework. It was a great was to get more familiar design thinking and connect the dots. I especially appreciate the hands on approach that allowed me to continue developing my own services.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
