Since 2008 I’ve reviewed over 1000 website templates on One Page Love!
Long-scrolling, side-scrolling, colorful, dark-schemed, busy, minimal – I’ve seen them all.
In my opinion, Squarespace, the all-in-one platform for selling your products or services, offers the best designed templates out of all the website builders currently in the market.
They have also been my most recommended website builder to any One Page Love reader looking for a landing page with content marketing, commerce or SEO optimization functionalities. Squarespace has all of your website building needs covered.
In this round-up I want to share 10 of my favorite Squarespace templates to help you get started with your next personal website or business venture.
Each of these 10 templates resizes gracefully down from big to small screens, ensuring a beautiful mobile optimized reading experience. Each template is also well researched, providing strong starting points your audience will love but remember customization is endless if you want to make the design your own!
Ok, let’s dive straight in.

The typography has character and creates a remarkable first impression to visitors. It’s worth noting at this point, all typography is customizable through easy-to-use design settings that can be applied everywhere on your website, but this is a brilliant starting point if you are after a bit of flair.

8 – Zorayda (Launching Soon)
Zorayda is a “launching soon” template perfect for taking leads while you are building out your bigger website or if you’re launching a brick and mortar store.
It has all the necessary elements you’ll need to get that sign up conversion; clear big image, business overview, social media accounts, contact details and the newsletter sign up form.
9 – Rey (Events, Wedding)
Rey is a beautifully designed template suited for a wedding or event.
Highlights include a long-scrolling format, keeping all the content and imagery in a single page. There is also a lovely UX touch where the RSVP button reappears top-right as you begin to scroll up again.
10 – Manual (Book)
And finally Manual is a bold landing page template perfect to promote a new book release.
Highlights include a big book cover design followed by the author biography. You can experience text and image content slide in as you scroll down, which is one of several animation effects Squarespace websites can use. Also I want to point out the lovely book preview integration as you scroll the product checkout page.
