Squarespace Website for an Illustrator, Teacher, and Speaker
Colorful and happy! This new Squarespace website showcases the work of Laura Coyle, an Atlanta-based Illustrator, Teacher, and Speaker. Laura wanted a clean design that would highlight her work, allow students to book help calls, and provide a way for potential clients to get in touch. Laura had used both Squarespace and WordPress previously and knew that she preferred Squarespace for her new website for its ease of use. We created a site that not only highlights her professional Illustration work, but allows clients to book one-on-one time with Laura to help with Adobe Illustrator.
The Color story
Laura’s illustrations are the star of the show here. We chose text and button colors that are slightly off-black, leaning blue. The color is less harsh than true black, but neutral enough to complement rather than compete with her stunning illustrations.
As usual, I made a few adjustments with Custom CSS. To highlight Laura’s courses, I used the code to change the color of a navigation item in Squarespace to make the courses item stand out. I also added a white background to her homepage banner text to make it more readable.
