Look into overall style settings and for fonts, where you can apply different font combinations for your headlines, paragraphs, and more. Next, check ‘Site Colors’ to try out different pre-made color palettes. In the animation settings, you can add animations to all blocks on your website, to display when a visitor changes page or scrolls down.
