    Hey Andrew,

    You can change it to white with the following CSS code :

    .sitename a , .tagline {
    color: #FFF;

    If you want for example your title white and tagline gray
    you can do the code separate :

    .sitename a {
    color: #FFF;
    .tagline {
    color: #d3d3d3;

    You can add the css code with devkit if you have it , otherwise go to dashboard -> Customizer -> CSS

    Hi ,

    To increase the size of the title add the following CSS code :

    .sitename {
    font-size: 4rem;
    .tagline {
    font-size: 2rem;

    Thank you for any help.

    I am trying this technique with the Acquire theme and I can’t seem to get the sitename and the tagline to change color?

    Here is my code I am editing using the DEVKIT option.

    /*- HEADER ————*/
    .copyright .icon-2x,
    .header-secondary .icon-2x{
    font-size: 1.4rem;
    background-color: #fff;
    box-shadow: 0px 2px 0px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);

    .header-overlay-no-push .header-overlay:not(.is_stuck){
    box-shadow: none;
    transparent linear-gradient(to bottom, rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.45) 0%,
    transparent 100%) repeat scroll 0% 0%;
    .sitename a{color: #3141a9;}
    .tagline {color: #3141a9;}

    Just a side note, the text will change from black to white automatically based on the “header” background color, by using specific color controls in Layers Pro, or the above Custom CSS.

    Here is the technical doc on the Header for anyone interested:
