Avada : Design

Avada comes with 22 demos, including Photography, Product Page, Architecture, Travel, Lifestyle and much more. With a clean and elegant architecture, many design features, Avada is a powerful and aesthetic theme.

Creating a new post or page is so easy using the flexible Fusion Page Builder and its powerful elements. This composer is not limited to 12 columns for the grid’s layout, like the Visual Composer or other builders. It was totally improved in the last update (version 5.0) and is even more flexible. On every page, you can make additional settings related to sliders, page, footer, sidebars, background or page title bar. One remarkable feature of Avada is that you can customize each element of the page builder globally, right from the Fusion Theme Options panel.

This theme is highly customizable and ready to transform each website in a unique representation of the owner’s personality and style. Avada is responsive on all devices and retina ready. From the Responsive section, you can turn the responsive layout features on or off, and adjust various parameters for this option. Right from the start, this theme shows you the author’s strong opinion regarding the concepts of freedom and flexibility. The theme’s layout can be boxed or wide, and you can control the website’s width from the Avada Options panel. You can also set an image, a pattern or a color as your background. The theme’s logo is sticky and can appear on the left, center or the right side of the website. Avada’s Page Title Bar can be displayed in three ways and styled with colors, fonts, visuals or fading animation.

In this theme, the aesthetic is a must. There are plenty of sliders, flip-boxes, rollovers, hover effects and animations, all designed to give your website a beautiful look. Avada’s visual appealing slideshows can use one of the four compatible sliders: Revolution Slider, Layer Slider, Elastic Slider, and FlexSlider, or with Avada’s custom slider, called Fusion Slider. The Theme Fusion author custom slider is based on the parallax effect, and it comes with a full width option for displaying all images, self-hosted videos or embedded Youtube & Vimeo videos.

Avada comes with an integrated lightbox effect, with seven different skins. You can enable this option throughout the entire website or on a single blog and portfolio post. An interesting feature is the ‘Sliding Bar,’ a widgetized section displayed above the site’s header that can be expanded or collapsed, to suit the user’s desire.

Avada comes with five pre-built menus: the main menu, flyout menu, secondary top menu, mobile menu and the mega menu. All these menus are available depending on the chosen header style.

You can emphasize the content by presenting it in an elegant mode using portfolios with different layouts and various options.
