We’re always looking for ways to expand the design possibilities you have with Divi. And since the transform options update came out, a lot of new techniques have become possible, without the need for custom coding knowledge.

In this post, we’re going to show you how to create a stunning diagonal design structure. The design we’ll recreate works great for hero section and matches any kind of website you want to set up. At the end of the tutorial, you’ll also be able to download the JSON file for free!

Let’s get to it!

Let’s Start Recreating!

Add New Section

Gradient Background

Start by creating a new page or opening an existing one and add a regular section to it. Open the section settings and add a gradient background to it using the following settings:

  • Color 1: #ffd633
  • Color 2: #efefef
  • Gradient Direction: 217deg
  • Start Position: 45%
  • End Position: 45%

Spacing

Then, go to the design tab and add some custom top and bottom padding.

  • Top Padding: 4vw
  • Bottom Padding: 12vw

Overflow

We need to make sure that the transform options don’t surpass the section container. To accomplish that, we’ll add a single line of CSS code to the main element of the section.

overflow: hidden;

Add Row #1

Column Structure

Continue by adding the first row using the following column structure:

Sizing

Without adding any modules yet, open the row settings and allow the row to take up the entire width of the screen. In the next step of this post, we’ll replace the space we’ve just removed by adding some custom left and right padding values using a viewport unit. This will make sure the design remains responsive across all screen sizes.

  • Make This Row Fullwidth: Yes
  • Use Custom Gutter Width: Yes
  • Gutter Width: 1
