One of our go-to additions in any Squarespace website we build, is adding in fonts that aren't available within Squarespace's design options. Typically we find ourselves building websites for clients who often already have their brand sorted, and part of their unique brand identity includes the fonts they use across their design work. But what do you do when the font you want isn't in Squarespace?
Twitter has decided to double it's per-tweet character limit from 140 to 280. This is a bold decision and changes the sites core identity. There are pros and cons to the decision but what does it mean overall?

The demonisation of social media is, in my opinion, unacceptable. We must protect our civil liberties and allow everyone to communicate in the format of their personal preference. That should remain a priority as to deny this could fuel further restrictions on the freedoms that we are so blessed to enjoy.
Praise is being given by the dental sector for the new website we produced for S4S Dental. This site, developed using Squarespace, features video and photographic content that we produced and is designed to be simple and engaging for existing and prospective customers to use. We're delighted to see the positive feedback on it's design.
The ways in which we can now choose to communicate are more varied than ever and whether you have a faith or not, how we stand for what we believe and defend the rights of those for whom we disagree with, allows freedom to reign and when our journey here is done we can hope to say we 'ran a good race'.

We've produced our new website and we're pretty delighted with it.
It does everything we feel a good website should. It's direct, to the point and easy to find relevant information. We've not cluttered things and we've used content we've created that reflects our business.
We've tried to represent who we are and the direction we're taking, rather than trying to fit a box of what some may think we should be. That should be true for you and your business - don't bow to the machine, but be true to you're ethics, ethos and build a business that truly represents what you do and who you want to be.
We'll share a full piece about our new brand direction and thinking there shortly. In the meant time, love to hear your feedback on our new site!

From Ben: "15 years ago I left my home in rural Lincolnshire and arrived in Sheffield, having just turned 18, ready to start university. The community of students I met through the church I attended in those first few days gave me such support, friendship, fun and were a great reflection of God's love. The relationships formed in those early days proved to be the foundation upon which I now call Sheffield my home. So much has happened since then and what a glorious rollercoaster it has been! I've been reminded of that awesome journey and I have a debt of gratitude to those who offered sanctuary to me in those formative days...
I'm at the point of tears with frustration that people would consider to vote to leave the EU. I'm praying and hoping that those on the fence vote remain, and that many in Leave would have a change of heart.
We are in an age where instead of building walls, we need to build bridges. Instead of fear we need to speak of hope. Instead of running from what we don't know we need to embrace change, diversity and be truly prepared to offer sacrificial love, treating those displaced by war, famine, terror, oppressive and regimes with grace and empowering them to know that they are treasured people. The choices of our generation will have repercussions through history and we cannot be the bearers of a banner that did not rise to the cries of those who needed us.
