Summer is here, and so are some great new Squarespace features. We’re excited to share a number of new additions to our platform designed to help you customize – and optimize – your online presence.
Squarespace Sponsors 2017 D&AD New Blood Awards
This year, Squarespace had the pleasure of sponsoring the D&AD New Blood Awards. D&AD (Design and Art Direction) is a UK-based educational charity with the primary mission to promote excellence in design and advertising and the New Blood Awards are all about inspiring and discovering the next generation of creative talent. As a sponsor we partnered with D&AD to develop a brief that challenged participants to create the “Ultimate Portfolio” by designing a website template for designers and creatives to showcase their work.
Introducing Promotional Pop-Ups
We’re excited to announce that Promotional Pop-Ups are now available to all current and new customers on the Business and Commerce plans. Whether you’re a small business trying to grow your email list, or an online store looking to promote a sale or new product, these customizable overlays are an easy way to target your visitors.
Summer Refresh: 16 New Templates
For many, a website can mean a fresh start for their personal brand or business. This summer we’ve launched 16 new templates to make creating a powerful online identity even easier. Each template is a starting point for a wide range of projects — whether you’re pursuing your side hustle or promoting your main gig.

Join Squarespace and C4Q for #GivingTuesday
Wherever you start, we believe that technology can take you further. One of our guiding principles at Squarespace is to democratize good design, giving anyone access to the tools they need to create a beautiful online home. The web should be a diverse place populated by diverse individuals and their ideas. This sort of inclusion is important not only to Squarespace and the tech industry, but to the world at large.
2 New Interactive Portfolio Templates
Squarespace is known for its beautifully designed, highly visual templates—but there’s more than one way to make a website engaging. So we created two new templates that not only showcase your portfolio, they interact with your visitors, encouraging them to stay on your site longer.
We’re Securing Millions of Websites with SSL
Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a technology that secures the connection between your browser and the website you’re visiting. It allows you and your website visitors to feel confident that their information is secure. And we believe that confidence is an important part of your online identity.
