Squarespace site recommendations please (UX portfolio)

Recommended Posts


As a Squarespace account holder, I am looking to evolve my more advertising creative-showcase site to one that is more geared towards a UX portfolio/background. I saw one online that I like which would has many of the things I would look to strive for: https://shawnkelshaw.com/

Can anyone make any recommendations to what site(s) would make good matches for this one, or UX? I have some saved as possibilities, but would love perspectives from folks as well.

Well, the closest thing, in my opinion,  to that Wordpress site look is a template called Avenue. Simple grid based site, using the blog to describe the items and a blank page with a summary grid layout, that will provide images and one click to the description. The other option using the same template is a page for each item and that page put into an index page. Two approaches to get what you want. 

This is a basic look at Avenue:


And this is a site with more going on (happens to be my own) : my random views

Thanks for the compliment. The use of a gallery block on a page, in a wall layout or grid lay out would allow you to add captions and text to the thumbnails and still have them click thru to a larger description if you wish. You can also choose to create an image layout page. They too can be wall or grid, and those image blocks have a choice of card design, that is a custom sizable image block with an integrated description card next to it. You can also animate these cards to fade in, reveal, fade up or or sideways, many choices. 

Scroll down until you see image block layout to see what I have described:
