“Details” is a continuation of the themes that are present in "A Better Web Awaits". While our Super Bowl spot aimed to highlight the distinction between a Squarespace website and the clutter and spam we often see on the web, our “Details” spot focuses on the world that Squarespace helps you create – a world where all of the attention that you put into your craft can be captured in your web presence.

Spectrum makes it easy to create color schemes using color harmony rules. Using these presets, you can create harmonious and aesthetically pleasing color schemes with ease.
Create schemes from images.
Images are an excellent source for new color scheme inspirations. Spectrum's Photo Palette feature can automagically generate beautiful color schemes from your pictures.
Sync your collection using iCloud.
Spectrum supports syncing over Apple's iCloud. Your entire palette library is synchronized across your Macs, iPhones and iPads.
Collecting and referencing inspiration on the web has always been a challenge. Many apps and services have attempted to provide tools to do this well. I've tried most of them. There are two things that I love about Inboard that keep me using it:
- A better way to take full page screenshots
You can capture the website you have open in your favorite browser in full height with no setup
- Your Dribbble likes on your desktop
Inboard will automatically import your Dribbble likes for immediate access
Granted, some crazy fullscreen sites are whack when captured currently, but I'm sure the Inboard guys will figure out the glitches. Try it out, I think you'll like it.
An excerpt from the Forward written by Erik Spiekermann:
Without typography, one could argue, messages will still be legible, but if one really wants to communicate rather than simply display a heap of alphanumeric data, some consideration would be helpful. Paul Watzlawick’s first axiom of communication—“one cannot not communicate”—puts it very succinctly. If you fail to consider the effect of your message on the recipient, you may inadvertently communicate that you do not care how your message may be received.
Where in the U.S. will you find the most “pleasant” days in a year?
“Pleasant” here means the mean temperature was between (55° F and 75° F), the minimum temperature was above 45° F, the maximum temperature was below 85° F and there was no significant precipitation or snow depth.
On January 24, 1984, Apple introduced the Macintosh. And with it a promise that the power of technology, put in the hands of everyone, could change the world. On January 24, 2014, we sent 15 camera crews all over the world to show how that promise has become a reality.
From sunrise in Melbourne to nightfall in Los Angeles, they documented people doing amazing things with Apple products. They shot over 70 hours of footage — all with the iPhone 5s. Then it was edited and scored with an original soundtrack. Thanks to the power of the Mac and the innovations it has inspired, an effort that normally takes months was accomplished in a matter of days.
The Sunday Times 'ICONS' - This is all about those iconic cultural images that we pin to our walls and stick in our minds. We all have our favourites. Heisenberg, Kraftwerk, and Banksy’s kissing coppers all featured in early scripts, but we wanted to take a snapshot of what’s making the headlines in 2014. Daft Punk winning big at the Grammy's, The final series of Mad Men, and Tarantino are all over the media right now. These people and their work have left an indelible mark and we’ll probably still be talking about them in ten, twenty maybe even a hundred years years time.
