Tools and Sites that Make Designing in Squarespace Easier
I’ve worked on 100+ websites in Squarespace, and tested a lot of tools. Below are some of my favorites!
Chrome Extension that lets you quickly get the hex color code for anything you can view in your browser.
Quickly generate a color scheme from any website.
Converts Hex, RGB, and HSL colors so you can get the info you need.
Typically less common than Google Fonts- some are available on Squarespace. You will need to purchase the fonts to use them in printed media or elsewhere on the internet.
All free for commercial use and available on Squarespace. You can sort by type & features. You do NOT need to purchase anything to use these fonts in printed media or elsewhere on the internet.
Find a cool font another website? Use Fount to see what fonts they are using!
High Quality, Free-for-Commercial-Use images. I always start here.
Expensive but amazing stock photos. These models don’t look like they are paid to be in these images. Images for web use run $15-$45.
Cheap, but you have to dig a bit more to find anything worth using.
Compress your images quickly!
My favorite site content organizer so far. It’s about as easy to use as a word doc, but mimics the look and limitations of a website more accurately.
If you are visual person, Trello is the project management software for you! I know Asana gets a lot of love- but I hate it. Trello keeps everything front and center without being overwhelming.
An almost all-in-one for project management, client-facing systems, and CRM. Dubsado was a game changer for my business- I was able to cut the amount of time it took for me to draft a proposal for a client from ~3 hours to ~15 minutes.
