There’s one question that people ask me more than anything.
Every. Single. Day.
I get asked “What’s the best Squarespace template for …?”
So I’ve decided to share everything I know about choosing Squarespace templates.

I’ve analysed every Squarespace template for every profession and purpose I could think of.
I’m going to tell you the right Squarespace template for you.
Lange is my top pick for photographers. It’s got lovely full-bleed images, space for photographers’ notes and credits, and intuitive navigation.
Wexley is a great theme for general purpose photography. Its best feature is the home page collage to showcase your recent work.
Margot is the theme to use if you’ve got a lot of text and other media to go along with your photography.
Iconic typography, easy navigation, and click-inducing thumbnails make Rally the best theme for blogs.
Tudor is a strong offering with a magazine-style layout – some nice design touches balance out the rough edges.
