A Day in the Life of Squarespace's Founder and CEO

Squarespace's Headquarters in NYC

In 2003, a college student was sitting in his dorm room trying to build a site that included more than a simple WordPress template could give him. The design focused undergrad realized that in order to achieve what he saw in his mind’s eye, he’d have to start from scratch. This undergrad was Anthony Casalena, the founder and CEO of Squarespace. Today, the company has grown to over 580 employees who help design, assist, and manage the millions of websites that have been created on the Squarespace platform.

We got a chance to see what it’s like to work as Anthony at Squarespace’s new headquarters in New York City—a space where Anthony’s focus on design can literally be seen.
