About This Workshop

Although it's "never been easier" to build a website these days, the process of creating even a simple marketing or portfolio site can seem daunting and overwhelming. This workshop seeks to solve that problem, offering you a proven approach and intuitive tools to create a beautiful, well-organized, and easily updated marketing, portfolio, blog or "brochure" website in about 3 hours. By the end of the class, you'll have a working version of your website, ready for final tweaks and launch.

You will also learn:

  • Why Squarespace is the preferred platform for simple, beautiful websites
  • How to easily structure any set of content into intuitively-grouped pages and sections
  • How to tweak Squarespace template basics like logos, colors and fonts
  • How work with Squarespace's visual editor and 8 page types
  • How to create and QA contact forms and other interactive site flows

Takeaways

This bootcamp is divided into four parts and limited to 10 students:

  • Part One: Why Squarespace? - You'll learn about the 7-year web design journey which led Familian&1 to prefer Squarespace over all other platforms (including WordPress).
  • Part Two: Site Goals & Information Architecture - Learn about the importance of storytelling through information architecture and follow a proven process for identifying your website goals and organizing site content into easily updatable sections.
  • Part Three: Theme Customization + Page Creation - Now that your site content is well-organized, you'll learn how to make pages, organize them into sections, and tweak the overall look and feel of your site's theme (plus resources to generate a beautiful logo inexpensively)
  • Part Four: Finalize + Publish - Last but not least, we'll walk through a pre-flight QA checklist that'll ensure your site is ready for launch on a custom domain.

Prereqs & Preparation

  • A laptop computer for class
  • An idea of the website you'd like to build
  • A basic set of brand assets (e.g. a logo, colors, and/or fonts)
  • Words, images and/or videos ready to go live
  • Willingness to dive into Squarespace and learn on the fly!
