About the Event

4 week Squarespace Workshop led by Ronan Lunny from Two Digs Studios.

Anyone can build a website with Squarespace, that's the joy and the curse of it. In fact, it practically designs itself in some cases, but when new to this, it can be hard to know where to start and how to correctly visualise what's needed for you website to have a positive impact on your project.

By first understanding what you need your website to do and say in a written sense is paramount to its success. To define this means asking some hard truths before you've even clicked a mouse.

Over this 4 week Squarespace introduction we will look at how to properly define what you need to say and how this will help define the visual outcome of your website.

Taking it in small steps, working together and with a little bit of independent, intuitive learning, we will build a unique and thoughtful website that will maintain a strong visual consistency that represents your idea, business or concept for the world to see.
