With the recent launch and success of our “Translating Squarespace with Bablic” tutorial, we figured it’s only fair to provide some Squarespace design inspiration to our loyal readers.
A little about Squarespace first for those who don’t know! Squarespace is a web based service that allows you to “easily” create a beautiful website, blog, portfolio and/or even a full-out e-commerce store. It is quickly becoming a leader in the industry and competing with the likes of WordPress, Wix and others thanks to its user-friendly and intuitive platform which lets you create beautiful Squarespace websites, all at an affordable cost. It seems they are also trying to get deeper into the e-commerce space with their latest update which lets you import all of your products directly from Shopify or Big Cartel. Drag and drop abilities, in-page editing, analytics, templates, modules, apps, custom domains, gmail integration – pretty much everything an online publisher can ever ask for. They also proudly stand behind their product, Squarespace.com’s front-end is actually made with with Squarespace.
Squarespace’s websites are now all responsive so you won’t have to worry about building for different devices and screen sizes, just focus on creating a beautiful site. Check out the Squarespace examples below, also known as the most beautiful Squarespace websites – keep in mind, they are in no particular order.
