Using the 12-Column Grid on squarespace

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm an Art director in a Digital agency in France.
And I need for my personal use, to do a website. I want to use Squarespace.
I'm trying to choose a template, but as a designer, I obviously made my own website design 😉
The thing is that, as usual, I used a 12 column grid to create my page.. (You will get an overview with the attached file.)

I've spent a lot of time reading a lot of articles on Squarespace but I don't really know what to think anymore!

- Is there a way to make my design below on squarespace? using a template and transforming it or starting from scratch?
- Is there a way to use these 12 columns grids to structure the site on Squarespace ?

- Also, is there a way to create a docked navigation ??

Thank you so much for your help !!
PS/I'm a dumb at coding...

Squarespace is built on a 12-column grid with unlimited rows, so you should have no difficulties. If you create a blank page without using prebuilt layouts you should be able to create your layout by dragging items to fit. Spacer Blocks are your friend when you need whitespace. Here's a screencast of me moving blocks to build your design.

Hi Paul,

And thank you so much for your return AND your screencast..  🙂
I understand how it works and it's sounds great!
I 'm gonna build my website from a blank page, it will be easier. I'm so stuck with the prebuilt layout!
- can you please provide me with the link to the "Create a site without using prebuilt layout" page?
I can't find it...

Also, would you happen to know if I can create a docked navigation ??

Thank you again 🙏
