The landing page for Green Artisans is unique because of its use of multiple slide shows. The slide shows all use the same fade transitions and speed but are in different sizes, arranged neatly in a grid. This strategy gives the business an opportunity to showcase different aspects of its work without looking cluttered or overwhelming.
To make a slide show in Adobe® Muse™ software, open the widgets panel and select the slide shows list. From there you can add or remove images, crop images, and alter options like transitions and speed.
Green Artisans' page area puts a few subtle effects to excellent use. The top left corner is rounded, to mimic the curve of the business logo. The top right corner has no rounding at all. Scroll down and you'll find that both bottom corners are rounded, but much less so than the top left corner.
Rounding corners on any shape, including the page content area, can be done using the Corners options when a shape is selected. Enable and disable rounding, select a join type, and alter the amount of rounding as much as you like.
Adobe Muse doesn't place limits on how many widgets you can use on a page. The Portfolio page for Green Artisans uses a slide show for each project, and every slide show has the same styling for consistency.
Replicating a slide show or any other widget in Adobe Muse is as easy as hitting copy and paste. A pasted widget will retain all the styling you've applied to it.
Anchors let you define a point in your page that you can then link to from anywhere. The Green Artisans Services page shows how links to anchors can serve as a type of navigation, allowing users to skip to any section of content by using the links at the top of the page.
Anchors can be added in Adobe Muse with just the click of a button, and if you update an anchor all the links to it will automatically update as well.
The Our Process section of Green Artisans shows how a simple type style can be an effective way to let content shine through. All of the body copy is organized into list blocks with a subtle image as the bullet point. A simple application of bold highlights an introductory phrase or sentence that summarizes the text.
To effectively utilize inline text changes like these, make a character style in Adobe Muse. Like paragraph styles, you can use character styles to alter every piece of text with that style with just a click of the "redefine style" button.
