Squarespace Template Showcase: Jade Eby
Jade Eby is a certified Trauma Recovery Coach, a self-proclaimed “Perpetual Entrepreneur”, a designer and a business consultant (talk about ultimate girlboss!). She is passionate about supporting Trauma survivors to start fresh with new businesses and build a new life of their dreams.
She is obviously an expert in many areas, and she needed a home on the web to really bring together her wide range of services and skills under one brand, and express her personality and passions.
Jade used our Unearth Squarespace Template to create a beautiful, clean and modern website design for her brand. She managed to put a slightly softer and more feminine spin on the Unearth Template to suit her gorgeous logo and brand, and it works so well! We absolutely adore what she has done with it and think it’s such great inspiration for how you can totally transform a template to make it completely on-brand for your business.
See what she thought about the process below, and make sure to check out her live website too!
Name: Jade Eby
What do you do/what is your business?: I help trauma survivors build lives they love through business consulting, education and design.
What or who inspires you the most?: On a business side, I am obsessed with Marie Forleo, Brene Brown, Shanna Skidmore, Ashlyn Carter and of course, Erica at Big Cat! My design inspiration is usually based on vibes and I tend to lean toward super clean, refined vibes.
What template did you purchase?: Unearth
Why did you choose that particular template?: I've been following Erica for a long time and I could tell that her templates were designed to "speak" to people. I almost pulled the trigger on a few other templates but I had this gut feeling that I should wait. When Unearth was released, I totally knew it was "the one." It spoke to me and I immediately envisioned my entire website just by looking at the template.
Why did you want a new website?: I run several businesses and I need a website to pull all of my interests together under one umbrella. I knew I wanted this website to represent ME and what I do, rather than one business -- so that meant I really had to rely on my copy and design to reflect who I am.
Why did you choose to purchase one of my templates, rather than a competitors?: I've purchased templates in the past from other vendors, but I've never quite felt like they suited me the way Big Cat's templates have. Honestly, I could have purchased ANY of her templates and made it look beautiful, but again, Unearth just spoke to my soul.
How did you feel before you created your new website?: Before I purchased Unearth, I felt so overwhelmed and lost as to how to design a site that represented who I am and what I do.
How do you feel now that you have launched your new site?: I LOVE MY WEBSITE! I feel like it totally represents who I am and what I do and the vibe I wanted to capture. I love that it's professional and easy to tweak when needed. I also love that it's proof that anyone can have a beautiful website at an affordable price.
How do you think your business is going to benefit from your new website?: Now that I have a beautiful website that explains all that I do, I think it will help funnel people to the right places [ie, business consulting clients will be able to find me more easily, while potential coaching clients will also be able to find me more easily.]
How did you find the whole Squarespace Template process from purchase to launch?: AMAZING. In addition to being a beautiful template the instructions, guidance and steps were painless. I appreciated that the process was easy and straightforward!
What's your fav series on Netflix right now?: The Umbrella Academy
