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.

How are creativity and innovation related?

Why do companies need clarity and creativity?

A company needs clarity to communicate their messages and ideals effectively. An ease of communication sets expectations. It becomes easier to align purposes and ideals with consumers, employers, and people. Creativity is needed to make a company adaptable and unforgettable. In my personal experience, creativity goes hand-in hand with problem solving and doesn’t just fall into the realm of “art”.

You have 30 minutes of free time. What do you do with it?

I would use my free-time to take care of myself. There are several things I do in my free time that I consider self-care: eating, reading, watching a show, taking a nap, zoning out, etc. However, something I’ve been putting into practice lately is doing some self-reflection. I allow myself some time to process my day so far (positives, negatives, and how I’m feeling) as well as set goals before the day ends. Any form of self-care ensures that I can perform well when I’m back on the clock.

What is one risky and bold goal in life you have? Or, if you could dedicate your life to solving one problem, what would it be?

Explain your creative process

What is the best advice that you have been given?

"If I were to die tomorrow, what would have mattered today?" My best friend always says this to me whenever I'm stressed out and going through a crisis. It reminds me to focus on the things that matter to me and to not let things that don't take over my day.

What is your definition of creativity?

Creativity for me is to be receptive; to believe that there is not one ways to do things. I don't think something can be creative if it was made with a closed mind. Things that are creative to me are surprising, clever, different, and effective.

The King – Sarah Kinsley Fast Car – Syd Coastin’ – Victoria Monét HOMEGIRL – Leven Kali Unconditional – Tinashe naïve – WILLOW Losing You – Solange L.E.S. Artistes – Santigold McGrady – Kari Faux AMERICAN GURL – Kilo Kish

How do you want people to remember you?

I would want people to feel like they could be friends with me or get along with me after I meet them. I want to be remembered for my kindness and humor first before my work. I want people to feel they can be comfortable around me.
