Squarespace Makes Creating Your Website Easy

Designers: have you wanted to create an online portfolio but lack the resources to develop your own website? Meet Squarespace, a web platform that lets you easily upload content, customize over 45 templates, and purchase a domain—all without the hassle of technical configuration. With a design-friendly interface, Squarespace is a fitting choice for architects, interior designers, makers, and other creatives. Its easy-to-use interface offers a handy way to get the word out about brand-new ventures. 

Read about two design-minded clients who utilize the platform below.

Urban Cowboy

Urban Cowboy, a Brooklyn-based bed and breakfast, began as a passion project for Lyon Porter and Jersey Banks. With the help of Squarespace, the duo made their move into hospitality. Porter discovered a passion for design after renovating a Williamsburg walk-up, soon to be Urban Cowboy’s first home, and the business quickly evolved into a global community of travelers and artists. Porter and Banks then brought Urban Cowboy to a Queen Anne Victorian mansion in East Nashville, a thriving oasis for the city’s burgeoning creative spirit.

Tom Delavan

After a three-decade career at Sotheby’s, Domino, and T Magazine, editor Tom Delavan made his move into the interior design profession. Now balancing his time between publishing and his own business, Delavan employs his design sensibilities to create interiors that reflect the character and lifestyle of those who inhabit them. He uses Squarespace’s Greenwich template to showcase a portfolio of completed projects, offering a seamless experience for clients.

With convenient features such as a drag-and-drop backend editor, rearranging content on a whim is easier than ever before. Built-in integration with Adobe Creative Cloud provides a seamless interface for quick image touch-ups, and a Squarespace Portfolio app for iPad and iPhone lets you take your online portfolio anywhere—no internet connection needed. You can also expand your portfolio to include a biography, organized drop-down menus, secure client logins and social media links, including Houzz.
