Design your portfolio
This article will give you a basic overview of the Design area and how to prepare your portfolio.
Design is where you go to customize the look and feel of your site. We're going to go over the basics of how to navigate and use the Design area.
Log in > Design
Log in to your Format account.
On the Left you can make changes to customize your site.
On the Right you can preview your changes before they are applied to your live site.
Let's look at the left side near the top...
At the top of the left side you will see:
- Under Theme you can see the name of theme you are currently using. If you are previewing a theme this will say 'You are previewing'
- Click Explore Themes to try a different theme.
Desktop is organized into sections. For example: the General section.
Sections > Groups
Under each section are groups of settings.
In this example we have expanded the Website Logo group to view its settings...

You can see your changes to settings previewed on the right.
When you are done adjusting your site click Save Changes.
Your changes are now visible on your live site!
