1. Recreate Design Structure

In the first part of this tutorial, we’ll focus on recreating the design structure inside Divi. Then, in part two, we’ll spend time going through all the sticky options to achieve the effect you can notice in the preview of this post. Start by adding a new section to the page you’re working on. Open the section settings, go to the design tab and add some bottom padding.

Add Row #1

Continue by adding a new row using the following column structure:

Without adding modules yet, open the row settings, go to the design tab and change the sizing settings accordingly:

Assign a z index to this row as well.

Leave Image Box Empty

Time to add modules, starting with an Image Module. Leave the content box empty.

Use Background Image Instead

And use a background image of your choice instead.

Then, apply some custom top and bottom padding to the spacing settings.

Add Text Module to Column

Add H2 Content

On to the next module, which is a Text Module containing some H2 content of your choice.

H2 Text Settings

Change the module’s H2 text settings accordingly:

On to the next row. Use the following column structure:

Without adding modules yet, open the row settings, go to the design tab and change the sizing settings as follows:

Assign a z index to this row too.

Column 1 Spacing

Complete the row settings by opening the first column settings and assigning some left and right padding.

Add Text Module to Column 1

Add H3 Content

Now that the row settings are in place, it’s time to add modules. Add a Text Module to column 1 with some H3 content of your choice.

H3 Text Settings

Move on to the module’s design tab and change the H3 text settings accordingly:

Add some right padding on smaller screen sizes.

2. Apply Sticky Effects

Image Module in Row #1

Sticky Settings

Now that we’ve built the foundation of our design, it’s time to start applying the custom sticky effects. Open the Image Module in row #1 and turn the module sticky as follows:

Sticky Sizing

Once the sticky settings have been applied, we can change the sticky styles of our module too. The first thing we’ll do is change the width in a sticky state.

Sticky Spacing

Next, we’ll modify the sticky top and bottom padding.

Sticky Gradient Background

We’ll apply a sticky gradient background to our module as well.

And to ensure a smooth transition, we’ll increase the transition duration of the module.

Column 2 in Row #2

Column 2 Sticky Settings

Next, we’ll also turn the second column of our second row sticky.

Text Module in Sticky Column

Sticky Background Color

Now that column 2 of row #2 has been turned sticky, we can apply some sticky styles to the Text Module inside this column. Start by changing the background color in a sticky state.

Sticky Text Color

Next, modify the text color in a sticky state.
