Squarespace provides numerous options for editing the title and logo of your site using their Edit dashboard, including mobile-specific features!
Sometimes the default editing options simply aren’t enough and a bit of extra code may be required to change your Squarespace mobile logo! Here’s a quick tutorial to do just that!
How to Change Your Logo
Logos are visual representations of your brand that should appear at the top of each page, providing instantaneous recognition and easy differentiation from other elements on the page, without becoming distracting or hard to read. When designing websites with multiple logos, its size should complement its overall design while remaining mindful of how such an element might alter loading speed or responsiveness on mobile devices.
Squarespace makes editing your logo and site title effortless within its editor, but for greater control over mobile screen sizing of your logo you may require adding custom CSS. In this tutorial we’ll cover how you can do that quickly and easily!
Start by visiting your Dashboard and selecting “Edit Site.” After that, click on the gear icon in the top-right corner to open up your Site Settings. On this page you can adjust Logo & Header tab settings by either entering new height values or choosing preset options for desktops and mobiles respectively.
Change your logo for Mobile Squarespace is quick and straightforward – taking only seconds! Just head over to your Logo & Header settings in Logo & Header > Mobile > and enter new width or height values for it. To avoid distortion during editing make sure you enable Lock Proportions before making changes.
Squarespace provides an easy, cost-free solution for creating high-quality logos for your Squarespace site without hiring a designer or spending any money. However, this service has some restrictions, making it less suitable for companies with complex branding or who require customized designs for their logo. There are various other services that provide custom made solutions, including those using AI to generate thousands of possible designs for you to select from.
Change the Logo Size
If your Squarespace logo is too small for your mobile website, there are a few steps you can take. First, increase its size in the ‘Mobile’ tab of the ‘Logo & Title’ section by either entering new width and height numbers or choosing from one of the preset sizes from the drop-down menu. Also ensure to tick ‘Lock Proportions’ when altering its size so it remains proportional across both desktops and mobiles devices.
Another option is to simply edit the image file itself, specifically if your logo features a background color; remove it or use transparent PNG file before uploading your new logo to your website. Finally, try using an image compression tool to reduce image file sizes and increase site loading speeds while making them responsive on mobile devices.
To do this, navigate to your edit dashboard and click “Edit Site Header”. Within the panel that appears, select ‘Site Title & Logo’ before scrolling down until you reach logo image selection. From here, drag the slider to adjust its maximum height in real-time before saving it! Once satisfied with its size and shape, don’t forget to save.
Add a custom CSS rule. This allows you to control the exact size of your Squarespace logo on both mobile and desktop websites, giving you greater control of its appearance. While the process itself may be straightforward, additional knowledge in HTML and CSS may be required for maximum effectiveness.
This method is an easy and noticeable way to enhance the visual appearance of your Squarespace site for both mobile and desktop visitors. Once implemented, try out different configurations of logo size until you find what best works with your website’s aesthetic and device types – once found it may also be wise to test on multiple devices to assess how the logo appears there as well.
Change the Logo Height
Logo size and padding are essential components for creating a great looking website on mobile devices. Since Squarespace stacks all content and sections together on mobile phones, it is crucial that they appear evenly spaced out so as to not look crowded or overwhelming. To achieve this, the Logo Size slider and Mobile Logo Padding slider can help. Depending on the size of your logo, height or padding adjustments may need to be adjusted in order to ensure proper fit across mobile screens.
Once uploaded to your site, logos should automatically resize themselves for both mobile and desktop audiences. However, if they are too small or too large for mobile screens they can become difficult to read and detract from its overall design – if this occurs you can use the ‘Logo Size’ slider to set a maximum logo size on mobile.
If your logo is too large, use the ‘Logo Padding’ slider to increase or decrease padding around its edge and make it easier to read on smaller screens and prevent it from being cut off when displayed on mobile.
Although Squarespace 7.1 provides more customization options, sometimes these aren’t enough to get your website exactly how you want it. This is particularly true when changing logo or site title sizes on mobile. In order to do so, add some code into your CSS editor.
Before beginning, you’ll need to gather details on the dimensions of your logo image file. To do this, open it in Preview on Mac and observe for any extra space along the left and right edges; if this occurs, cropping can be achieved by selecting and pressing Command-K.
Next, it is necessary to create a separate logo for mobile. This png file should match up perfectly with the dimensions of your original jpg logo file; and can then be uploaded via Site Title & Logo Setting.
Change the Logo Color
Squarespace’s built-in responsive design feature automatically selects images tailored for mobile, creating and selecting smaller versions to optimize them for use across any device. This method, known as mobile-first design, ensures your content works smoothly on every platform.
But sometimes your logo appears small on mobile, which can be annoying! This problem can usually be remedied by adding some code into the template of your page – an easy solution which can be implemented quickly!
Make sure your Squarespace logo is wide format and not square – you can easily change this in Site title & logo setting by dragging the slider under Logo height – this will quickly adjust its size on both Desktop and Mobile View!
Next, it’s essential that your logo is positioned appropriately across all pages. This may prove challenging; to simplify things use Google’s structured markup testing tool as an aid. Once confirmed that your logo is where it should be, perform tests on loading speed and performance on mobile. If issues exist such as too small logos appearing when viewing on mobile, try decreasing rows on your page layout in order to speed up content delivery more rapidly.
One way to make your Squarespace logo seem larger on mobile is to add a background color that creates more contrast between image and text, making reading simpler.
Also, adding a gradient overlay to your logo will give it an elegant touch and increase its visibility – you can find free gradient overlays for Squarespace logos here.
