Squarespace Cover Pages
Two engineers and myself were tasked with solving a long time challenge at Squarespace: building the most lightweight website creation tool imaginable. Squarespace Cover Pages is the result of countless iterations to create a powerful system that allows anyone to make a focused website in seconds.
I had the pleasure of leading the design and art direction for this major platform component. I managed a small team throughout the project; designed and oversaw the build of 32 unique, flexible, and highly customizable templates; art-directed, shot, and retouched photography; and guided the user-experience design and development. The sturdy and forward-thinking foundation we put in place for Cover Pages went on to power multiple features in the Squarespace ecosystem—giving users even more ways to express themselves. The Cover Pages team grew and it continues to be a valuable core feature for customers.
