Squarespace Website Examples: Online Stores

Ocelot

squarespace web examples - ocelot chocolate

Who can say no to artisanal, organic chocolate wrapped up in some seriously eye-catching packaging? The owners of this Scottish chocolate brand have a background in art and illustration, and it shows – this site is nothing short of a visual delight. The bright, Bauhaus-style designs of their product immediately draw the visitor in, enticing them to explore the website in more detail.

Customers can purchase Ocelot’s chocolates directly through the online store, and even create an online account. There’s also a newsletter signup form, a gallery of collaborations, and a contact form for those interested in becoming a wholesale customer.

It’s definitely one of our favorite examples of a Squarespace website.

Sebastian Cox

squarespace examples - sebastian cox furniture

Sebastian Cox is a London-based furniture design studio led by husband and wife duo, Sebastian and Brogan Cox. The website is actually divided into three separate parts. First, there’s the online store, where you can purchase their ecologically-produced wooden furniture directly. There’s also a gallery section that features their commissioned pieces, and one that details their collaborations using Squarespace’s portfolio pages feature.

All of it is stunning – the images are full of light, and the website’s colors are soft and warm, reflecting the brand’s focus on nature.

The end result is a highly professional-looking website that is intuitive to navigate, and refreshing to look at.

Narciso Rodriguez

squarespace websites - narciso rodriguez

While not exactly an online store, Narciso Rodriguez is a world-famous brand, and we wanted to highlight this Squarespace website example for a couple of reasons. One – to show that Squarespace is used not just by smaller businesses, and two – to show how a Squarespace site can also incorporate accessibility features to accommodate a wider audience.

On the bottom right corner of the site, you’ll notice an ‘Accessibility’ button, which opens up an accessibility menu when clicked. Here, users who have trouble navigating the site can change its visual settings to make the site easier to read. This feature is powered by the UserWay widget, which can be added to any Squarespace site.

Other features included on the site include an Instagram gallery feed and a store locator. As a well-known fashion brand, it’s no surprise that the site enjoys a high number of monthly visits, something that Squarespace seems to have no problem accommodating.

In terms of Squarespace website examples, it truly is a standout.

The website is simple, but enticing – and on-brand through and through.

The website uses a clean and simple design to put the focus on its content – case studies, blogs, testimonials, team galleries, and more. There’s even links to a self-assessment survey, as well as the opportunity to purchase the company’s very own book.

One advantage of using Squarespace as their content management system is that changes to content (which, in their case, seems to be regularly updated) can easily be made, without the need for any advanced technical knowledge.

Encore Digital Media

As a digital media agency, it stands to reason that Encore Digital Media would need a modern, professional-looking and engaging website that reflects their expertise in the digital space.

Available on the site is information about the sectors Encore serves, as well as the approach and tools they use.

Interestingly, it has also done a lot of work for some of the UK’s most prominent creative and cultural institutions. This artistic focus is reflected in its website, which expertly combines a sliding carousel of its visual work on the homepage, with a minimal amount of text throughout the rest of the site. The end result is a simple but impactful website which invites prospective clients to get in touch to find out more.

Also featured on the site is an online store which sells just a single product – Rose’s own 350-page monograph, featuring a curation of the projects it has worked on in its 20-year history.

Mike Perry

example of squarespace website - mike perry portfolio

The website for Emmy-award winning artist Mike Perry is an explosion of color and movement. While many might recognize his work from Comedy Central’s Broad City, Mike’s extensive portfolio also includes paintings, animation, sculptures, books and more – all of which are featured on the site.

Other Squarespace features used on the website include an online store to purchase his artwork, and a subscription form to receive updates.

Interestingly, Mike has opted to use a squarespace.com domain rather than his own – this can work well for portfolio and personal sites (as well as saving a bit of money in domain renewal costs).

It’s a fantastic example of how a little bit of customization can make a Squarespace site look unique, and can reflect your own personal brand of creativity.

Alex Honnold

squarespace website - alex honnold personal site

Alex Honnold’s website is not for the faint of heart! Renowned for being the first person to free solo Yosemite’s El Capitan, the American rock climber’s website is filled with spectacular (if not slightly panic-inducing!) full-screen imagery of his most daring climbs. His passion for the sport comes through not only in these images, but also in the extensive library of videos featured on his site.

Fans can access links to his ‘Climbing Gold’ podcast, purchase his book, and sign up to his mailing list. There’s also a page dedicated to the Honnold Foundation, which supports solar energy projects worldwide, and another page promoting speaking engagements (featuring a video of his 2018 TED Talk). Finally, Alex uses Squarespace’s blogging feature to detail past press appearances.

All in all, it’s a great example of how versatile (and epic!) a Squarespace website can be.

Nonprofit and Charity

Creative Art Works

squarespace website examples - creative art works

It’s not surprising that a nonprofit that’s focused on art and creativity would select Squarespace as its website builder. Using colorful, icon-based illustrations throughout the site, and large, bold font, Creative Art Works ensures that its mission of empowering under-resourced young people through its creative arts programs comes across clearly.

Based in New York City, the organization also helps young people a number through a youth employment program, by organizing commissioned art, and by providing remote learning resources. There’s even a form that allows visitors to donate to the organization directly through the site.

The website’s design is fun and playful, with plenty of images of its program participants having a good time – what could be a more powerful testimonial than that?
