Before having all the students switch to a new system I wanted to personally test it. One night at 9:00 PM I started setting up my own portfolio. By 2:00 AM my site was finished and looked great. It was so simple! When I did have a technical question I emailed customer support at Squarespace and had an answer in about 10 minutes.
Next, we met with Squarespace at their New York HQ. Through a special partnership, Miami Ad School students will receive an extended (one-year instead of two-week) free trial account followed by a 50% discount off your first year. Students will also receive a free domain, 24/7 customer support, responsive-design templates and real-time analytics.
We will be taking the old portfolio platform off-line on October 10 so be sure to load your new Squarespace portfolio right away. I can’t wait to see what everyone is going to create.
