Footers are often overlooked when it comes to styling. They’re sometimes styled as an afterthought or designers have to work on them last and end up having to rush through them. Fortunately the Divi footer, including the Divi bottom bar and Divi footer credits, are easy to style with the theme customizer settings.
The problem isn’t usually what is presented – it’s how it’s presented. Divi’s footer includes a widget area with multiple layout options. This is usually used to add lists of links and information, but it rarely gets any design love. The very bottom, the Divi footer bar, usually includes copyright information and a link to the developer’s website. It’s often left stock.
In this article we’ll take a look at 10 creative Divi footer designs for inspiration. They’re in no particular order. Stick around for a bonus at the end.

A footer shouldn’t include everything. That would be confusing. It should include the final bit of information you want readers to have. This includes links, images, statements, forms, etc., but maybe not all of those – just what it the most important. Make it look great to give readers a lasting impression.
