At this point, you’re probably already aware that there are a shit ton of Showit website templates out there to choose from. It can be overwhelming to figure out where to start or how to narrow it down from there. I’ve featured some of my faves already on this blog, but I figured I could also take a deeper dive into each of these Showit website templates for ya!
Today, we’re looking at the Franklin Showit template created by The Buffalo Collective:
Christina of The Buffalo Collective is one of my many Design Partners. These are hand picked designers who create Showit templates for creatives that I have personally approved for my photographer clients. Not to mention, they all offer discounts for my LYD audience! Check out my current design partners here.
Christina describes the Franklin template as the following: “an artfully timeless multi-page scrolling website. The template is designed with ample breathing room around your words and images, allowing your heartfelt stories to take center stage. Its modern and ever-so-slightly vintage fonts create a classic, elegant look, while its warm tones invite you on in to fall in love.”
Here’s everything that comes with the Franklin template:
From just looking at the site demo, it’s clear why so many photographers have chosen this beautiful Showit website template when working with me. While the original template is equipped with a warm color palette, my clients have chosen to edit the colors. I love seeing how different the same template can look with different brands!
In this example, I customized the Franklin template for Abigail Maki—a couples and family photographer in Montana. She reached out to me for a brand refresh, and so I ended up making changes to her logo based off of the template design! The fonts that Christina has featured in this template are just so beautiful. Franklin worked perfectly with Abigail’s more neutral, nature-inspired palette and portfolio.
Next up is Shannon Ferguson—a wedding photographer in Michigan. We swapped out the primary font to match Shannon’s logo and used a color palette that communicates her high-end experience. You can see how this came to life in a unique way for Shannon below:
