24 Creative Websites Running on SquareSpace

March 28, 2012 on General, Inspiration

Even though I’m a WordPress guy, I can’t help but try out other web content management systems. Open source, closed source, free and paid – there are countless platforms out there that all excel in one feature or another.
Although one system caught my eye. This one is by far one of the most advanced CMS I’ve seen so far.

Check out part 2 of this series for even more websites using the Squarespace platform

Drag and drop abilities, in-page editing, modules, templates, analytics – just about everything an online publisher can ever want. The system is Squarespace. Squarespace is a hosted CMS solution that supports all that I’ve mentioned – and more. I tried it out, created a couple of pages, played with the back end and read up on it. I must say – I’m in awe.

But a review of Squarespace is beyond the scope of this post. You will have to check them out yourself. For now, take a look at these creative websites – all built using Squarespace:

      Hey Ryan! Love what you did with the magazine. What template did you use as a starting point?

  • http://www.squarespacewebsites.com/ Casey Armstrong

    This is a great list of sites. Have you checked out Squarespace 6? Great new developer tools that should continue to drive SS usage. Love that platform as it’s great to hand off to clients and the support they offer.

    Just launched my website on Squarespace and couldn’t be happier with it – I am a serious technophobe so I found Squarespace to be super easy to use and create a nice looking website. Thanks for the round up of other sites – will check them out now!

  • David Bowles

    I like this one, the design is really cool.

    Do you know any of the themes that people used? When I see a SquareSpace site that I like, I often can’t tell which template they use because they customize it so much.

  • young athenians

    aww thanks! I made the monarchs site. The new site is http://www.fromceleste.com

  • Mark

    Just created a new site for my restaurant in Cambodia using squarespace 6. http://www.alleycatcafe.biz

    • Danja

      No offense but your site looks so amateur and lacks designer’s eye. This is what happens when Joe and Jane start “creating” and “designing” sites.

  • Debbie

    What would any of you suggest for a foundation website in the Trucking industry I am toying with Bedford, combo of Bedford and Mautauk or something different all together? Any Advice?

    • http://fearlessflyer.com Michael Soriano

      Squarespace is a good choice. If you want to create your own – look into WordPress.com as well.

    Thank you for this list – It’s great to see what other people are doing in Squarespace and how they make the website their own.
