TheMuddShop is an independent design studio specializing in Squarespace setup, design, development & consulting. Founded in 2011 by designer Renée Mudd, we empower entrepreneurs and small businesses to take ownership of their online presence using the power and convenience of Squarespace – a modern, user-friendly platform, perfect for independent business owners looking to build a beautifully designed website quickly and efficiently.
You're starting a new business and you need a website. Maybe you've tried to hire someone or maybe you've even tried your hand at building it yourself. Turns out, it's not quite so easy, especially when you're building your business at the same time.
We take the typically overwhelming and exasperating process of building a website and make it painless and enjoyable for you.
We’ve spent years building Squarespace Websites, so we understand the amount of preparation, organization, and choices that need to be made. We streamlined the process and take care of the heavy lifting and customizations for you – prompting our clients to provide information where needed and working collaboratively to execute a fully customized, one-of-a-kind website you can be proud of and even manage yourself.
Because it rocks! Also, because we believe our clients should be empowered...and the tools Squarespace provides allows for just that. Squarespace is a groundbreaking platform that has many useful features. The templates are world class and for many, the design of the existing templates work for their needs. Much of the work we do includes additional customization including: animations, custom backend, modified templates, third-party integrations, and custom widgets.
We believe in building websites that our clients can love, use and own. Squarespace enables us to build and customize great websites on a foundation that is easy to understand, even for non-technical folks. We are proud to be members of Squarespace Circle, a community for creative professionals who build websites on Squarespace.
PEACE OF MIND
Squarespace is a self-contained platform that works seamlessly and is fully managed from top to bottom. This means there’s never any need to update software, plugins, or widgets; patch security vulnerabilities, or worry that changing one component might break something else. It also means that although you find the need to add third-party apps or plugins, you may not need to since most functionality is native to Squarespace.
BEAUTIFUL DESIGN THAT PERFORMS
Squarespace templates are beautifully and thoughtfully designed to incorporate cutting-edge UI/UX best practices, which means your website will have the best of the best in “form and function” baked right in. Don’t let the word “template” lead you to believe your website will look like a template - especially after we customize it! Think of each template as a shell or framework with unique features that once populated with your branding and content will be unique to you and your business.
ROOM TO GROW
Squarespace scales. Squarespace was designed for everyone from bloggers to musicians to online retailers, so you can be confident that it is robust and flexible enough to grow with your business as your needs expand.
An advantage to using Squarespace is the ability to package a beautiful design platform, easy access, and your web-hosting into a single monthly or annual payment. All Squarespace Accounts include hosting for your site and its content in addition to unlimited bandwidth and storage.
Mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of all website traffic. With that in mind, it’s critical that websites perform across any device and screen size. Every Squarespace template and website includes a unique mobile experience that matches the overall style of the website, so content will look great on every device, every time.
Do you use Third-Party Integrations like MailChimp, WuFoo, Acuity Scheduling, Eventbrite, OpenTable, Facebook Pixel, Apple Pay, etc.? Good news, these can be integrated, modified and added to your site through custom code injection (available in all Business and Commerce Plans). Tell us about the other software products you use, and we can help figure out the best way to integrate them within your new Squarespace website.
