Let’s start the ideal design for ebook divi

Upload ebook pack landing page layout

The first thing to do is to create a new page using the Ebook Layout Pack landing page layout that you will find in the pre-designed layouts.

Add a new section

Scroll down the layout and add a new section where you want to display the book reviews.

Add a new row

Column structure

Continue by adding a new row using the column structure.

Column 1 Gradient background

Without adding any modules yet, open the row settings and add a gradient background to the first column.

  • Color 1: #ffffff
  • Color 2: # f4f4f4
  • Column 1 Starting position: 12%
  • Column 1 Final position: 12%

Column 2 Background color

Also, add a custom background color to the second column.

  • Column 2 Background color: # 9400ff


Switch to the Design tab and remove all custom space between columns using the following settings:

  • Use custom gutter width: Yes
  • Gutter width: 1


We are also changing the line spacing settings.

  • Top margin: 100px
  • Bottom margin: 100px
  • Top Padding: 0px
  • Bottom padding: 0px

Add an image module to column 1

Upload 1: 1 Image

Once your row settings are in place, you can start adding the different modules, starting with an image module in the first column. Upload an image of your choice but make sure the aspect ratio is 1: 1. This means that the height and width should be the same value.

Image Alignment

Select the alignment of the left image on the Design tab.

  • Image alignment: left


We are also changing the width of this module for different screen sizes.

  • Width: 20% (desktop and tablet), 30% (phone)


To allow overlap on the left side of the line, we add a negative left margin value in the Spacing settings of the Image module.

  • Left margin: -30px


To complete the design of the image, we also add ’50vw’ to each of the corners in the border settings. This will ensure that the image retains its circular shape across different screen sizes.

Add text module # 1 to column 1

Add star symbols to the content area

Let’s move on to the next module, which is the ranking text module. To highlight the number of stars, we are going to use symbols. Go ahead, copy the following symbols and paste them into the content area of ​​a new text module.

Background color

Then change the bottom of the module.

  • Background color: # 9400ff

Text settings

Switch to the Design tab and change the text settings as well.

  • Text Font: Montserrat
  • Text Font Weight: Heavy
  • Text size: 45px (desktop), 30px (tablet), 25px (phone)
  • Text line height: 1em
  • Text alignment: center


Continue by changing the width of the module.

  • Width: 35%


And add custom spacing.

  • Left margin: 50px
  • Right margin: 50px
  • Top Padding: 20px
  • Bottom padding: 20px

Shadow box

To highlight the rating box, we’re going to add a subtle shadow.

Transform Translate

Finally, we’ll reposition the text module using custom translation conversion values. You can postpone this step until you have also added all the modules to your column.

  • Right: 360px (desktop), -84px (tablet), -70px (phone)
  • Low: -113px (desktop), 190px (tablet), 141px (phone)

Add text module # 2 to column 1

Text settings

Switch to the Design tab and change the text settings accordingly:

  • Left margin: 200px (desktop), 50px (tablet), 20px (phone)
  • Right margin: 50px (tablet), 20px (phone)

  • Right margin: 50px (desktop and tablet), 20px (phone)
