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.

Has saved multiple baby turtles from crossing the road.

2. How are creativity and innovation related?

I believe everybody is creative and brings something different to the table. Bring all of those different people together and you have innovation.

3. Why do companies need clarity and creativity?

Companies need clarity and creativity to keep flourishing with times.

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

I go outside, take a walk to either distract my mind or flourish it.

5. 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?

I'm dedicated to helping our oceans. Wether it be living more sustainable, standing up to tyrants to protect it, or informing others about problems that need action.

6. Explain your creative process

Every project is different with its own set of constraints, which makes the path getting there that much different. For me one thing thats reoccurring is research. I like to compare it to a thermometer. At the beginning of a project it starts at 0, to reach 100 you totally have immerse yourself in the subject and keep building on what you find to get that meter filled up. Once it's filled up thats when the magic happens.

7. What is the best advice that you have been given?

Never lose your cool.

Creativity is feeling. Creativity is alive. Creativity is abstract.
