MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SQUARESPACE:
Squarespace provides beautiful designer templates. They are clean, minimal, sophisticated and elegant examples of what each template can be and do (if you don't want clean and minimal, don't worry, that can also be accomplished). They offer Landing Pages which can give an impressive entrance to your site. Here are two Landing Page examples:
All Squarespace templates are responsive, meaning that you can resize your browser and the content (including the images, slideshows) will also automatically resize to help give you and your visitors optimized viewing experiences. This is especially helpful if your visitors tend to use mobile devices (an upward trend these days).
Squarespace STYLING OPTIONS TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR DESIGN
Squarespace gives you extensive styling options that a lot of other website builders do not have. We’re not saying that you can’t do those types of customizations with other website builders, it’s just that Squarespace makes it very easy for you to customize your website’s design without editing codes. So this option works great especially if you are not a coding ninja. For example, you can adjust the fonts, colors, image opacity, sidebar width, background images, sizes, spacing / padding, etc of just about anything on a Squarespace website.
