I’m a big online class taker and as you know it’s easy in those situations to get into a top-down conversational style but the way all of you stay relatable in tone makes it feel like chatting with friends.
As someone with zero design and website experience, the video content and instruction was soo good for converting Brine into Pedro that I was able to fully execute in a weekend. Again, HUGE for me as a beginner. I was shouting from the rooftops!
The Squarespace Design Course is, hands down, one of the best investments I’ve made as a freelance designer. Puno is a brilliant teacher and shows you how to organize your client process, figure out what to charge, and of course, make the most out of the Squarespace platform. I keep coming back to the Resource Library and the Slack community, which is a resource in itself. Seriously! The community is insanely helpful. You will learn so much from this course, regardless of your skill level, and leave with tons of useful design tips and tricks (maybe even new opportunities)! Don’t miss out! — @gawoonchung
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again - Puno’s Squarespace Design Course is not like any other course. Not only will you learn the platform inside out, she also teaches you how to become a freelance designer by dropping valuable knowledge and providing the necessary tools to get you there. — @therikster
Puno's Squarespace course was honestly better than any course I took in art school. She covers the technical side AND the business side, which is SO RARE, and so helpful for REAL LIFE! Also, its just a hoot! Thanks Puno and team

I truly believe that the ilovecreative's course is probably the best way to learn and understand the Squarespace platform. Puno brings it down to a level that doesn't feel daunting and her personality makes learning SO MUCH FUN. Seriously. Her personality is infectious and the hours I spend rewatching the lessons never get old. She is also super encouraging and open to telling us her tips and tricks at being a proactive "slashy"!

We received the best talent submissions from IloveCreatives.com. It was so hard to choose because all the candidates were amazing. We ended up with the perfect fit and could not be happier with our seamless experience!
Steven Male, CEO of Inbound
We cannot rave enough about how much we adore I Love Creatives. We took the Instagram course to start and we were blown away by what we learned and it was a lot of fun to take! We also frequently search through ads to find new help and have even posted an ad ourselves. We truly love what Puno has created with I Love Creatives and People Map, it makes our lives as creatives that much easier and enjoyable.
Giselle, Founder of Pêche-Crème
They are the bee's knees of the creative community. I've tried a ton of different places to look for professional creatives, some costing way more than I'd like to admit, and still, I Love Creatives has delivered more and better referrals than anywhere else.
Love the platform and its creative community! I posted an AD and got responses immediately. Puno and the team are on it and will make sure that your post gets visibility. Keep up the good work bringing people together ILOVECREATIVES!
Sam Zauscher, Photographer & Founder of Society House
Puno’s great at teaching Squarespace and she’s super fun, but the community is really the best part of the course. It’s so helpful to have people who are on the same project to discuss with when you run into obstacles.
I have to send a client 2-3 different comps this week which will ironically interfere with going full speed here. Sure, I could use the site comps for level 3, but if I only have this limited window for having feedback from such a killer group I'd much rather use it on a few spec sites I'd love to design / go wild with. You just created too great of a course here! So much to learn.
I checked out PeopleMap on the free trial and upgraded to pay for it within minutes of using it because I saw how valuable it could be. In just 24 hours, we already received a DM from a prospective client wanting more info about our services by email to potentially hire us. I'm totally sold on PeopleMap...and Puno! :)
I only wish I had found this course sooner! Puno not only teaches you how to master Instagram but your brand and your business. It's not about how many followers you have but about building a community, getting that ROI and reaching your goals.
I love that she connects all of the great tips and tricks back to YOUR time because time is money. You are running a business and you only need to spend time on the things that reward your business. And the time you spend on this course will reward your business.
I seriously can't recommend this course enough.
Kanya Iwana, Director + Artist
I'm obsessed with ilovecreatives. Everything from the beautiful and thoughtful design, the perfectly curated ads and profiles, and of course, Puno! If you haven't met her yet, you're missing out. But then again, I'm sure you'll meet her. She's everywhere.
I religiously await the weekly emails. I have met so many wonderful people through ilovecreatives and most importantly have found such wonderful clients through ilovecreatives.
The Artist Playbook
ilovecreatives has been key to my career launch this past year. I've gotten some incredible clients through the ads as well as finding great job leads. I really look forward to Wednesdays every week for new opportunities! The creative profile is my favorite part as it serves like a friendly and more personal resume.
Rachel Andersson, Cultivate Kind
Mind Blown. Thank you for taking to time do create all this to Visually assist me to understand this better. I can not wait to share this site with my peeps! For the F-ing WIN!
Savanna Hunter-Reeves, Designer and Art Director
When looking for a PR team, I knew I didn't want a cookie-cutter big-box agency, but didn't know where to start my search for something better. Answer: ilovecreatives. I figured that the type of people advertising on ILC would be more creative and cool than your average randos, and I was right -- the first PR team I contacted was through an ILC ad, and it was a great fit. They're amazing and are now on retainer with us.
Bronze Avery, Pop Songwriter
ilovecreatives has been such a source of discovery for me! It's so fun to be able to connect with different creatives based on industry and location, and several clients of mine have found me through the site. It's the perfect way to attract the kind of people you want to work with.
Kerstin Martin, Owner of KM Web Design and Squarespace Genie
PeopleMap transformed the way I search for collaborators.
As a musician, there are many creatives I need to connect with: other songwriters, photographers, A&Rs, etc. It gets really hard to keep track of all of my contacts because most of them I know exclusively on Instagram.
PeopleMap not only makes it easy to find these individuals, but it also keeps them super organized, and streamlined. Not to mention, connecting and engaging with these creatives also grows my following, which would be so so hard without the presence and eases of PeopleMap.
I can’t recommend this sh*t enough. I also can’t recommend the Instagram Marketing course enough as well. The mind and grind is a real tactic to not only help you gain more followers, but also great tactic on how to connect with the individuals you want to connect with online. Win Win.
This is perfect, thank you so much for the time and effort you took to create the template comparison post! As a fellow Squarespace designer who is also teaching Squarespace this has become one of my best resources and my students love it! Thank you!
