3 Websites Every Squarespace Designer Should Know About

If you are looking for inspiration for your next website, these three sites will inspire you to design wonderful pages using Squarespace.

Squarespace is a powerful publishing system with beautiful templates. It allows you to create any type of web page with no coding involved. Founded in 2004, it is behind many of the pages we browse daily, like artist portfolios or restaurant pages.

Many designers prefer Squarespace to other publishing tools, like WordPress, because of the quality of its templates. They all have good typography, neat transitions, and responsiveness, allowing the users to enjoy the pages on mobile phones or tablets without having to make tedious adjustments.

Although most Squarespace websites start with a predefined template, they are fully customizable. They can be made very simple or incredibly complex. Squarespace even offers the ability to create entire online stores with e-commerce tools, like a virtual shopping cart and payment integration included. That means that no two pages are ever the same.

Monica Durán (@visualbloom), founder of the branding and web design studio Visual Bloom, is an expert in creating web pages using this tool, and she recommends three additional websites to explore the possibilities it offers.

Square Design Guild

This page offers additional templates to use in Squarespace, but more importantly, it is a continuous source of inspiration thanks to its showcase page.

In this section, SDG interviews designers and creatives with unique web pages to discover the process that led them to choose specific fonts, images, or color palettes.
