Ahhh illustration, how nice. In a time where stock photos and dated color schemes rule the land, it is so nice to see illustration gaining popularity once again. 411’s header and nice icons really make this site a cut above. I would like to see some more content, or at least more illustrations throughout the site, but over-all, a step in the right direction.
It is with joy in ours and our families hearts that we welcome Rolando Berrios to our team. Though you may never see a pretty image, template or boring business blurb from him, his presence will be behind every second of every day we keep our 99.98% uptime.
Rolando Berrios (a SenseNet alumnus) has been a systems engineer and developer working at internet companies for a long time now. His work experience includes several high profile web sites, including TD Ameritrade, the NYTimes.com and Forbes.com where he was responsible for maintaining and improving upon the infrastructure of some of the most visited sites on the internet. Prior to joining Squarespace, he played a major role in developing a stable systems platform for Vidavee, which was subsequently sold to Vignette. Throughout his career he’s been focused on increasing availability, uptime, and scalability, always striving for the perfect night of uninterrupted rest.
The Squarespace Team
Squarespace has some great templates, we all know this, but it can be easy to fall into the confines of a template and not think outside the box. For some people, a template is all they need, drop in the content and your set. For others, templates should be seen as starting points for something greater. Hudson Interior Design does a great job at getting creative with their content area. It takes some knowledge of html and css, but a little bit of knowledge can go a long with in this case. Nice work.
