I noticed recently that some dog walking colleagues of mine hadn’t really updated their web presence in a long time. I was itching to try out Squarespace after hearing so much about them all over the internet. One of my favourite podcasts, Reply All was recently sponsored by them.
I sat down at my desk and started working away. In a couple of days I threw together a few logo options, and a temporary website and surprised them with it – pro bono. They loved the logo and the website, and immediately switched all of their branding over. I had literally done no client interaction before hand, and just used available content on their existing media.
I’m really impressed with squarespace as a platform. Templates are easy to use and modify – I switched Heather & Pooch over immediately and was able to mimic the old website design near flawlessly (and made it a lot better) with just a little bit of custom CSS. I highly recommend squarespace for small businesses that just need a quick and easy website with minimal content.
