Text Modules are a vital part of any page design you create with Divi, I’m sure that’s something we can all agree upon. Normally, they’re used to display text in a straightforward way. But you can use Text Modules to create stunning design elements as well. In previous blog posts, we’ve already shown you how to use text to elevate your web design.

In this tutorial, we’ll continue adding options for you to choose from when designing a page and using Text Modules. As you may or may not know, there several different text types that you can combine within the same text module. Additionally, one module can contain several headings, paragraphs, links and more. In this post, we’re going to use all of these text types to our advantage to create stunning block elements in our page design.
