Squarespace Giveaway: One-Year Business Plans

Confession: Design Aglow has a crush on Squarespace; we even wrote it on our work notebooks in pink puffy hearts. They just get us, in the way their elegant, uncluttered designs and simple drag-and-drop customization work together to provide a polished experience for both clients and users. (We like to think this is how our own products resonate.) It took a while for Design Aglow to find an online solution that fit both our visual aesthetic and our ease-of-use mantra; but when we did, we fell for them...hard.

We'll stop drooling and let Squarespace tell you about their best features that help you create a website easily: Based in New York City, Squarespace is a beautiful and intuitive website publishing platform that gives photographers everything they need to create an exceptional professional website, including stunning galleries, blogs, event calendars, and stores, all without touching a line of code.

And we're starting to think that they like us too, because to celebrate the launch of Design Aglow's new website, Squarespace is giving away one-year Business plans to 2 lucky winners.

Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.
