Customizing squarespace templates

If you’re just starting up or a custom WordPress website isn’t in the cards for you, Squarespace may be the perfect fit. Squarespace comes with hundreds of existing templates that our development team can lightly customize with your brand identity, imagery, and content. This option is great for clients who are short on time or budget, or have content already loaded into Squarespace and just need an extra hand in getting it just right!

Squarespace Website packages include things like:

  • Website strategy session to understand your user goals
  • Sitemapping and site architecture
  • Template selection and customization
  • Social media, newsletter, and e-commerce integration
  • Copywriting & imagery optimization

“When I contacted Carly, she instantly made me feel at ease. She was supportive, understanding but most importantly, humble. There was never any pressure, Carly gave me time to reflect and come to the decision. As I made the choice to move forward my stress started to melt away. Carly came to understand who I was and what I was looking for, I came to understand what she and her company valued and what they could offer me. There were some serendipitous moments of shared life experiences and a mutual respect was developing.

Carly took my information back to her team and sent me the first draft for the brand kit a short time later. I was stunned! I couldn't believe she came to such a deep understanding of what I wanted in the project. I sifted through the options and we went through a few drafts to sort out the details. When I expressed my ideas for a little tweak here or a little tweak there, Carly met each challenge with grace. I felt like this process was done in partnership. I am grateful for the peace of mind that came from this experience and look forward to tapping into other services that White Canvas Design has to offer.”
