  1. Congratulations @Yang-En ! You're on your way with Squarespace 🙂 From the perspective of 20 years of design focused on creatives, artists, galleries, and education, your new site is impressive for its focus and comprehensive information. A few suggestions: 1. Eliminate the landing page with the Enter button. Give your viewer the immediate chance to navigate your site (with visible nav colors) without the feeling of having to gain admission. It's not a museum, it's a website. 2. Focus on your artwork imagery (rather than photos of you at work - those can be in About). I

  4. @BAMArt Have you tried: a {text-decoration: none !important} ?
  5. Great question @Jo_G! The deceptively simple answers are 1. Compelling imagery 2. Stylish copy 3. Perfect functionality Great design articulates ideas with zero clutter. The mistake most people make (even seasoned designers!) is not editing enough. Once you achieve elegance in form and function, your content can shine!
  6. Howdy @MWSMOKERS! Looks like you're having fun with this so far 🙂 If you're using a Gallery Slideshow in an Index Page set to auto-run, then this article may help: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206543407-Gallery-Blocks and jump here: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206543407#toc-customize-the-design Often times it's not intuitive, but you can pre-size your images so they render full screen the same way by making sure you've set their dimensions to match in your photo editing software. It looks like you just dumped your photos
  7. Hi @whoiscooper - Great Job! A couple of suggestions: 1. Definitely consolidate all quotes under the banner image/video and make them a slideshow. Start with google, and amazon, not NYAA, then do the most famous people after - Kelly, Ryan, Zachary, Oscar, L'oreal. 2. Give viewers a chance then to watch your videos. Cut that menu item and make it the first thing under your headshot and quotes. 3. Cut the rest of the first page and move it to About or somewhere else. A mentalist is all about making us SEE things. Not READ things. If they really want to read about you, they ca
  8. Hi @jfarmato - welcome to Squarespace 🙂. Great start!! A few pointers from nearly 20 years of experience working with photography, art and design: 1. Put your best work forward. Edit EVERYTHING else out. There's a few shots that are (gasp!) blurry where they shouldn't be. Also - I thought the cropping was forced in the aspect ratio of the slideshows, but you're choosing to release headshots with the heads cut off at the top. While usually this an editorial decision made by the publisher, you're doing it here. The result is the shots look cramped and sliced. Then, front-load portfolio
  9. Congratulations @RCL87! You're off to a great start 🙂 Great design is often about communicating more with less, and you're keeping it simple - so that's good. However, you don't have any smiling faces of happy children - which a clothing seller (or in your case re-seller) needs to have. Subaru has branded their cars with the concept of "Love" and it moves more autos year-over-year than anyone expected. People nowadays are shopping online for the experience more than anything. Your job is to give them joy in being sustainable and stylish. Which leads to: what kind of stuff a
  10. Congratulations @Addy! You've taken a great first step! Couple of "hot takes:" You've got your insta (only) linked in header AND footer. If you had more links, it might look helpful, but just them looks lonely. Maybe add the insta to the Main Nav? Pink is a lovely and festive background color... but it distracts from your reviews' artworks. Artsy has white (or near white) for a reason. You can choose a barely-perceptible grey as your site background so that the highest highlights in your thumbnails pop (#F3F3F3, for example). Use your well-informed use of color elsewhere to
  11. Hi @VeloSound, Great start on your site - a couple of responses: Have you seen the option of Express Checkout? https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206540817-Express-Checkout It's perfect for a single-product store. Also - you can use the Link feature in the Navigation menu to create a link to any Product URL, by specifying the link from your Edit Product > Options > Product URL window. Hope this helps 🙂
  12. Hi @Bmcgee Your website concept would definitely work on Squarespace. Monetizing depends on your products - digital and physical. SEO is handled within the blog itself as well as across your website. Wordpress has a different backend - think of it more like PC and Squarespace is more like Apple. As for your domain - you can keep it at GoDaddy (and point it to Squarespace) or transfer it to Squarespace completely. Good luck and feel free to reach out with more questions!
  13. Hi @cardiffmh There are two schools of thought on this: 7.0 - Brine templates and 7.1 - Just about any template Many professional Squarespace designers use Brine family templates for their scaffolding because of its inherent flexibility. Building a museum-style site from the ground up - think metmuseum.org and the like - are custom jobs or in-house staff; but they can be simulated almost exactly using Brine. It's just a matter of learning how slideshows and galleries work, then building your content around your images. Good luck, and feel free to reach out with any ques
