It’s one thing to grasp the basics of HTML and CSS and another to put them to good use.
Where should you start? How creative can you get with Squarespace? The answer depends on how much you know your CSS properties.
Customize Your Dream Site is a hands-on practical approach where you get to experience what is like to customize a Squarespace website through custom code.
Throughout the modules we'll build and customize together a portfolio website, and inside each section I'll be explaining what I’m doing and WHY, so you can understand the versatility of the most important CSS properties and how you can apply them to your own projects.
This course is aimed at passionate Squarespace designers that are looking to know what is like to get creative in Squarespace, by adding customizations through code.
If you can handle the basics of reading and writing HTML and CSS, with this course you’ll be able to expand your knowledge on how to use different CSS properties to apply them to your projects.
BONUS #1: an EXCLUSIVE GROUP, where you'll get all the support you need, and have a space to share your progress and discoveries with other students!
BONUS #2: the CSS glossary ($19 value), a handy list of CSS properties with their corresponding explanations and value options, so you don't have to waste time looking through previous videos if you can't remember what something does.
"I think this is a great course for everyone who is even the slightest bit interested in learning how to code (a love for Squarespace probably doesn't hurt either). I say everyone because I think your strength is that you make HTML and CSS so accessible. I've always had a love for coding but many online sources are too dull, too complicated, too overwhelming... You're a very good teacher and I like the practical approach of this course. Sure, some of the properties and declarations I've never heard of and need to look up further but I feel much less intimidated doing so. Now that I know the basics of reading code, I know what to look for and how to apply that knowledge. I won't be able to do it as fast as you for quite some time, but and I'm really looking forward to start exploring on my own."

My goal is to make custom code feel less intimidating by breaking it down in small steps, and sharing the reasoning behind each code snippet. This, to show other passionate Squarespace designers how they can benefit from using custom code in their client projects to fulfil client requests, solve layout or design issues, and finally break the creative wall that's been holding them back thanks to template limitations!
