A little trip down memory lane

I’ve been designing websites for over 15 years and rocking WordPress for 12 of those years. Back when I was a Web Designer in the corporate world, I dabbled in WordPress and blogging as a hobby. That’s when I discovered the Genesis Framework, and I was hooked! My little hobby blossomed into a side gig, and eventually, it became my full-time business. I was a die-hard Genesis fangirl, living for all the ways I could customize and create themes. I thought nothing could top it.

Then, along came Kadence, strutting its stuff. I tried to play it cool, sticking with Genesis for new sites, but curiosity got the better of me. I had a little heart-to-heart with my business bestie Lauren at Restored 316, who was busy whipping up some seriously gorgeous themes for Kadence. I test-drove one of her new Kadence themes, and I was smitten! After redesigning a Genesis site for my longtime client Casey at Good.Food.Stories using Kadence sealed the deal. I traded my Genesis designer hat for a sparkly new Kadence one, and I’ve never looked back.

Now, I still take care of my clients with Genesis sites, but all my new projects kick off with Kadence. (and I honestly can’t wait until all my Genesis clients have moved over to Kadence.) Moving to Kadence is on my “best decisions ever” list!

Check out these 5 fabulous features of Kadence that have me head over heels:

  1. Light as a Feather, Fast as Lightning

    Kadence is lighter than a feather and faster than a sports car! With a well-optimized and lightweight design, Kadence leaves no room for bloated code to slow down your fabulous website. In this fast-paced digital world, a speedy website is a MUST, and Kadence delivers that without breaking a sweat.

    And guess what? Kadence has built-in performance options like image lazy loading, CSS and JavaScript minification, and Google Fonts optimization that makes your site run like a dream. Speed and efficiency never looked so good!

  2. Headers and Footers that’ll Make You Swoon 

    As a designer, I need control over typography and colors like I need my morning coffee. Kadence offers global typography and color controls that let you create a visually cohesive masterpiece effortlessly.

    Pick from hundreds of Google Fonts and set global color palettes to give your website a consistent, gorgeous look across all pages. Oh, and did I mention you can do it all in just a few clicks? That’s right; no more manual adjustments for every little element – Kadence has got you covered.

  3. Integrations? Yes, Please!

    Kadence is like that BFF who gets along with everyone – it cozies up perfectly with Gutenberg, allowing you to use your fave tools without a hint of drama. The developers have ensured that Kadence’s features and options blend seamlessly with Gutenberg and other page builders (not that you’ll need any extras). And Kadence plays well with a whole host of popular plugins like WooCommerce, LearnDash, and Yoast SEO, so you can deck out your website with all the glitz and glam it deserves.

  4. Global Typography and Color Controls

    As a web designer, having control over the typography and color scheme of your website is essential. Kadence offers global typography and color controls that make it a breeze to create a cohesive and visually appealing design.

    The theme comes with hundreds of Google Fonts to choose from, and you can easily change the font style, size, and weight for every element on your site. The color controls allow you to set a global color palette, ensuring that your website maintains a consistent look across all pages.

    These controls are incredibly easy to use and can save you a significant amount of time when designing and maintaining your website. Instead of having to manually change the font and color settings for each individual element, you can make global changes that automatically apply to your entire site.

  5. Mobile Responsiveness and Accessibility Features

    Kadence shines when it comes to mobile responsiveness and accessibility features, ensuring that your website looks great and functions seamlessly on all devices and for all users. The theme is built with a mobile-first approach, meaning that it automatically adapts to different screen sizes and resolutions without any additional effort on your part. This guarantees that your website will provide an optimal user experience for visitors browsing on smartphones, tablets, and desktops alike.

    In addition to its mobile responsiveness, Kadence also emphasizes accessibility. The theme incorporates several features that make it easier for users with disabilities to navigate and interact with your website. These features include keyboard navigation, screen reader compatibility, and a built-in focus-visible outline for improved usability. By prioritizing accessibility, Kadence ensures that your website is inclusive and compliant with web accessibility standards, catering to a wider audience and demonstrating your commitment to providing an accessible online experience for all.
