Take your Squarespace Skills to the Next Level!
This is an advanced course for designers and DIY Website owners.
Get the code and design tips that I have used throughout the years to close the gaps caused by Squarespace template and platform limitations.
I’ve been a Squarespace fan for 10+ years and since becoming a professional designer in 2014 I’ve built more than 80 websites for entrepreneurs and small businesses. Everything I share in this course is based on real-life examples. I am also officially endorsed by Squarespace as an Authorized Trainer.
making Good Design Happen
This course is not about teaching you how to write code, it’s about knowing where to find the code you need and how to use it effectively.
While I have learned a lot about CSS and HTML over the last couple of decades I would never claim to be a developer. I am a designer and a very thorough and happy tinkerer. I find most of my coding solutions by googling them and occasionally with the help of kind developers who are sharing their knowledge. After all these years I still get excited when I find a coding solution and see it work!
And that’s what 201 is all about: growing your CSS and design confidence while having some fun!
→ 75+ CSS and Coding Snippets
→ CSS 101 and a few Tricks!
→ Advanced Design Tips
→ FREE Access to my SEO Plus course
→ Private Facebook Support Group
→ 20% Squarespace Discount (for new sites)
The course is structured by website and page sections as well as content elements, to make it easier for you to find code snippets. I actually use my own course these days to look for code!
