How to bring creativity and customizations into your Squarespace & Showit website

I asked a few people in my Showit & Squarespace Facebook group What’s your current biggest challenge when it comes to designing your website?” and a common answer was

  1. Creativity
  2. Being able to customize the site

As a Squarespace and Showit website designer who has designed over 50 websites, I’m happy to share my secrets on how to make websites POP using a little bit of creativity!

1. ADD OVERLAPPING ELEMENTS

This is very easy to achieve in Showit, but a bit more difficult in Squarespace. With a little bit of code you will be on your way to overlapping/ floating icons (FOLLOW THIS TUTORIAL). If you have a showit site just create 2 different canvases (different colors) and then take your logo or submark and place it in between the 2 canvases.

2. Create a hover effect on your images

You can learn how to make a mouseover effect on Showit by following this blog and on Squarespace following this video.

3. Add a gif

Just screen-record your computer or make a quick video of you on your phone and then upload it to a free gif converter like ezgif.com and insert it into your website! The motion will grab the attention of your viewer so make sure to put it in a place that you want featured.

What will you do to make your website ✨ UNIQUE ✨ ?
