Squarespace Website Design

Website Redesign and Transition from WordPress to Squarespace

The Rare Genomics Institute is an international nonprofit that helps patients with rare diseases. The organization raises funds and connects patients to scientists who can help them through the process of genomic sequencing and interpretation. When I joined Rare Genomics as a Volunteer Web Designer, the website had just transitioned from WordPress to Squarespace.

My goal was to help Rare Genomics develop a more modern and streamlined design that supported its brand as an innovative thought leader. I also wanted to make sure information available to patients was easy to find. To do this, I redesigned the website’s navigation menu, buttons, and social media. Currently, I maintain the website by adding new pages using the Squarespace editor and custom CSS. I also support donation campaigns by designing banner images for use in fundraising materials.
