Squarespace Design & Setup

Your website is the most important piece of real estate you will ever own, use it wisely. Whether you are designing a Squarespace website from scratch or looking to re-vamp your existing Squarespace site, our designers are here to help you achieve your desired goal.

First impressions are lasting impressions, and your website is often the first impression your customers or clients have about you and your business, so don't blow it.

Our design methodology:

  • Planning - Define exactly what you need. One size fits all does not work.
  • Define Purpose - What are you trying to accomplish?
  • Audience Recognition - Who is your end user? Design and Usability impact different audiences in different ways.
  • Content - Display content according to users needs.
  • Usability & UIUX  - is key, we use the KISS approach "Keep it Simple Stupid".
  • Planning documentation - Visually planning the website, taking into account the above mentioned.

You wouldn't build a house without a blue print would you? A blue print for a website is known as a requirements document - a good game plan will save you not only precious time during design but also prepare you for a successful website launch.

Why do You Need a Squarespace Designer/Developer?

Websites are an investment. Hiring a Squarespace designer/developer to create the website you truly want will save you time and stress while also helping grow your business and get your beautiful new website seen online.

SAVES YOU TIME.



Pretty much anyone can go on to Squarespace and throw together a templated website in a matter of minutes. Not many people are satisfied with the basics though. They want more but they don't realize it until they are staring at a blank website they just signed up for.

Whether it's that fancy feature they saw on a Fortune 500 company's website, or animated scrolling, or that 'cool thing where the logo moves'; all of these tweaks will take time to research, practice, and implement for a non-developer.

AN EXPERT SQUARESPACE DESIGNER/DEVELOPER CAN DELIVER THE SITE YOU REALLY WAN IN A FRACTION OF THE TIME. 

IT ENSURES YOUR WEBSITE INVESTMENT YIELDS RESULTS.

 

What's the point of spending money and time developing a beautiful website that doesn't do anything tangible for your business? When you invest in a website, it should pay for itself by helping you achieving your goals; whether those goals are to drive traffic, collect leads, or raise brand awareness.

Squarespace designer developers with well rounded marketing backgrounds can not only design the site for you, but they can advise you on how to maximize your online presence to translate into traffic, views or revenue.

ALLOWS YOU TO AVOID A 'COOKIE CUTTER' TEMPLATE DESIGN.


Nobody wants to be that guy that has a website we've all seen a million times before. With DIY websites people often find they don't have the time or knowledge to customize their template and make it truly unique.

Any business hoping to stand out from the competition will know the importance of being original and unique, online and offline.

WE KNOW HOW TO UTILIZE HTML AND CSS TO CREATE TRULY UNIQUE WEBSITES ON SQUARESPACE THAT MAINTAIN ALL THE GREAT, EASILY MODIFIABLE ELEMENTS OF THE PLATFORM ITSELF.
 

There's nothing worse than investing time and money into something you're proud of to watch it collect dust. 

Many Squarespace designer developers are educated specifically in web design and, in many cases, know very little about Search Engine Marketing (SEM) or Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

There are, however, some designers who DO go that extra mile. You just need to come prepared to ask the right questions when vetting Squarespace developers.

If SEO is important to you a Squarespace designer developer that knows their stuff when it comes to search engine marketing is the right fit for you.

SQUARESPACE IS BUILT WITH ALL OF THE MODERN SEO STANDARDS IN MIND, HOWEVER, YOU STILL HAVE TO KNOW WHAT INFORMATION TO PUT WHERE.


SQUARESPACE DESIGNER VS. DEVELOPER


We used the titles in tandem here because most often, in Squarespace, they blend together. This is not the case for every website build or mobile app project. Here are some of the main differences:

>> DEVELOPERS
are often formally, though sometimes self, trained in website development also known as coding. Things like HTML, CSS and Javascript. They can be thought of in basic terms as the project architect. Carefully developing how the website functions with less emphasis on the look and feel of it.

>> DESIGNERS
are typically the folks who are concerned about how the website looks and how a user will interact with it (UI and UX : user interaction and user experience). You can think of them like the interior designer.

 

>> DESIGNER DEVELOPERS are a good mix of both. They have the coding skills to develop a site that will function the way you want it to and the design skills to make it beautiful as well.
