Bold and sophisticated.

Your content deserves the best.

Watson was influenced by the bold strokes and clean lines of classic newspapers and magazines. We obsessed about the typography, ensuring your words were clear and readable. We made strong choices — emphasizing your content, while cutting out the cruft. The sidebar disappears when viewing a individual post, maximizing and clarifying the reading experience. Give your posts that professional feel with ten built-in typographic styling options.

Watson style example

Add some style.

Make it your own.

Personalizing your new website should be fun. We’ve leveraged the built-in WordPress customizer, so adding your own background image or color is easy. On top of that, you can use the Custom Design upgrade to set your own primary color for links and buttons with the built in color picker. Combine these colors with a custom background to match your brand and give your website a truly unique look.

Get noticed.

Feature your articles.

We built a simple slider into the Watson front page to help your important articles get more attention and give your website that polished look. Check a box while writing a post and it will automatically show up in the slider. We’ve also included an optional row of thumbnails for any additional featured stories you want to mix in to the home page.
