I just published 2 new websites, but you won’t see them in my portfolio. They aren’t original designs, so I don’t feel like I can take credit for them.
The website came together pretty fast, with less than 100 custom CSS lines to get the right look and feel, and we were off and running. I would think
Squarespace would work great for someone wanting to get their feet wet with a new website. Check out the final Squarespace website here.
The setup was pretty typical. I downloaded the theme and installed it. Getting the theme installed wasn’t bad, but If you are new to building websites, there will be a learning curve. Once installed, there were a lot of options for the theme at the site and page level. And that might also be a little daunting for people unfamiliar with WordPress or content management systems in general. The website came together pretty fast, with less than 100 lines of custom CSS here as well. Anyway, check out the final WordPress website here.
A person with minimal skills could probably get a SquareSpace website off the ground and published relatively quickly. I believe it would be easier than getting a WordPress website off the ground. For the control freaks like me, tinkerers, and those who want to learn, it’s just hard to beat WordPress.
