Quotes add interest and value

  • A great way to highlight important quotes and capture the viewer's attention.

  • If your page consists mostly of quotes, consider using the white background color for the quotes.

  • Quotes can be used with or without an image.

  • Centered layout is better for long quotes as there is no limit for the length of the text.

  • For centered quotes, the image needs to be square (although the image on the published page renders as a circle).

  • If aligning left, there is a character limit for quote: Please preview your page.

  • Large icon quote marks are available for the left aligned quotes.

“To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit: it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse. To design is to transform prose into poetry.”

─ Paul Rand

Example of left aligned block quote with large quote marks

Each patient case is like a piece of art. You first notice the overall feel of the picture. Then, you analyze the individual elements. And when you talk to the patients, it’s like talking to the artist. You get to ask them personal questions and find out about what contributes to the art.

─ Eliot Mostow, MD, MPH, dermatologist and Manager of the American Academy of Dermatology’s Practice Operations Committee
