Cutting the confusion out of web design

The web design industry is fraught with bad practices. Many web designers take advantage of their clients lack of technical knowledge, locking them into hosting packages and maintenance costs. At David & George we like to do things differently. With a Squarespace website, there's no need to worry about hosting or maintenance.

Strong Call to Action

A good website should direct the user towards an action, like buying a product or giving you a call. Its content should give just enough information to make the user want to find out more but not so much that they get lost. The home page should contain minimal content and direct users to the most important parts of the site. Extra information can be placed on inside pages so that those who want to dig deeper can do so - and those who are busy can quickly find out what they need to know.

Squarespace Vs WordPress

WordPress is an open source platform originally designed for blogging. A WordPress site is technically free to setup and anyone can contribute to its code base, which is one of the reasons why it's so popular. Squarespace on the other hand, is a paid platform maintained by a team of professional developers. If there's a problem, you can guarantee they've got the best people working on it. With WordPress, the quality of your website is very much down to the skill of the person building it. WordPress often requires plugins for features that are already built in to Squarespace. Plugins can be buggy and need frequent updates while all of Squarespaces features have been carefully tested before release and are updated regularly. WordPress sites require hosting and a large amount of technical setup before the web building process can even start. All Squarespace templates are mobile and tablet responsive straight out of the box, this is not necessarily true of all WordPress templates.
