10 Web Design Trends (The Girlboss Edition)

In this post, I'm going to share 10 web design trends for female entrepreneurs, bloggers and creatives to help you evaluate whether the ideas you have for your own site build are current and future-focused, or whether they're overdue for an update. This post will also help you to think more practically about which elements are 'must-haves' for your own site so that you can communicate these ideas more clearly to the web designer you're working with. Thirdly, I hope this post will inspire you to build a beautiful online space that represents the hard work you've put into your project so far. 

Designing a Colour Scheme for Your Squarespace Website

A crucial part of designing your website is coming up with a colour scheme, which is a set of colours that both define your brand and are used throughout your site for interest and consistency. These colours show up in your photography, backgrounds, headings, links, footers, and calls to action. If you've already worked with a graphic designer on a logo and branding elements, this particular set of colours has probably already been decided on. But if you don't have a colour scheme to refer to, this post will help you come up with one.

Setting Up a Style Guide with Squarespace

I really hope this Style Guide tutorial helps you plan, design and execute the building of your Squarespace site. It's always good to have a plan, even when it comes to something as intuitive and creative as the look and feel of your website. Without a plan, I waste time and energy that could be better spent elsewhere. I also struggle to know when to stop. Hopefully, armed with this information, you don't have to make the same mistakes I've been making!
