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.

We needed an identity to match our level of expertise & professionalism and Quill was the perfect team for the job. Most pool liner companies have the same old-school approach when it comes to branding & design, but Quill was able to breathe some fresh air on to this outdated, industry-standard style. From the clean, calming color palette, a creative new logo and unique website design, to our awesome new work vans, Quill gave us the exquisite “glow-up” we have been dreaming of for a long time.

The Quill team was excellent to work with on our branding project. We were starting from scratch with no existing identity, but also had multiple stakeholders with vested interest which could have complicated the process. Ryan and the team were able to listen to our needs, research the limited examples in the market, and create something that reflected our asset. I greatly appreciated their ability to work with our project manager to keep things moving, but also the ability to present to the greater committee for feedback and approvals.

The team at Quill Creative was invested in my visual identity design from the moment I contacted them. Taking time to understand ISW and my vision was their first concern. The remainder of the process was timely, fluid and incorporated my feedback, and each team member I met was engaged with the product/concept they were delivering to me. I'm thrilled with the final results of ISW's updated Visual Identity brand.

Over the last year I've had the pleasure of working with Quill Creative Services to refresh the brand of my family's business which is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2021. On a scale of 100 for expectations I’d humbly give Quill a score of 200… The discovery, creative and implementation stages could not have gone smoother from my perspective as your typical/busy business owner. Quill invested the time to truly understand my company's history, personality, character, products, services and most importantly our customer base.  The end product has taken our brand to a level that I frankly believe to be genius.
