How to add and style a button in Squarespace - video tutorial

When you think of buttons, think beyond Benjamin Button and Brad Pitt's adventures in ageing. 

Instead, let's talk about buttons in web design/development and how they are one of my favourite Squarespace features!

I use buttons on every single website I build and design for my clients. I love when buttons are styled with a pop of colour and stand alone without surrounding clutter because then they are much more likely to be clicked. Whether we use them on web pages or within a blog post, buttons are a wonderful way to highlight a call-to-action (CTA) that you want people to take.

Once you decide to add a button to your Squarespace website, don't forget to style it so that it matches your site's branding and aesthetic!

Favicons: how to create one in Canva and upload it to your Squarespace website - video tutorial

f you're anything like me, you dream about laser focus and working on one task at a time. However, if truth be told, you're a multi-tasker.

In my case, this shows itself all the time when I'm browsing the internet or doing work online. Take a quick look at my browser and at any given time I'll have at least half a dozen (if not more!) browser tabs open. It's a cluttered mess and it can be hard to keep track of all the websites I have open.

Here's where favicons come into play. Favicons are the small icon on each browser tab associated with a website and they're one of the quickest ways to tell websites apart when you have many tabs open. They're a way to fully distinguish and brand your website and they are a design element that should not be overlooked.

Not only are they super cute and useful, they're also incredibly easy to create and upload to your website!

I've created a short video tutorial to go along with this post to show you how easy it is to create a favicon using Canva and then how to upload it to your Squarespace website.
