The newest website that I’ve had the incredible pleasure of designing, belongs to the amazingly talented Melissa Townsend. Truly, it’s Melissa’s stunning art that is the design of her site, I just helped organize her paintings so she could adequately show them off to the world!
Website Platform – Squarespace
MELISSATOWNSENDART.COM is my first Squarespace site!!!
Yep, I ventured from the familiar and beloved WordPress.
Although WP will continue to be my top choice for the majority of my clients, Melissa needed a website platform that would showcase her paintings in stunning galleries, and Squarespace does galleries brilliantly.
A little aside… for anyone who would ask about the Squarespace template that I chose; I played around A LOT with different Squarespace templates – I probably tried at least 10 before Melissa and I contentedly settled on the Jones Template. Each of the Squarespace template families has unique galleries, as well, some templates have the option of adding projects (the Jones template being one of those). I used a mix of projects and galleries to show off Melissa’s art, and am in love with the results.
This website was a complete DELIGHT to work on – Melissa, your paintings are a stunning expression of your heart and creativity. I loved being a part of the process of helping you share them with the world
