We know quite a few wildly-talented people who don’t have a personal website. Even if they do have plenty of word-of-mouth, paying work, we can’t help but think they limit themselves by not having an easy-to-find space online where they can introduce themselves or provide a way to contact them. Most suffer from the same dilemma: they are daunted by the process of creating a website, because it is just too much to wrap their heads around, even on template sites like Squarespace and Wix.
We’re thinking that Carrd may offer a great solution to getting a succinct, well-designed site up-and-running quickly. The idea: One page. That’s it. One simple space, easy-to-make via Carrd’s stylish templates, that gives a sense of who you are or what you do, and where to find you. Think of it as a digital business card. Brilliant.
Three sites are free. Paying gives you more bells and whistles.
Here are a couple of examples of Carrd templates and their backend. You can see how easy it is.
You use Carrd to announce a project as well, or pretty much anything. We’re thinking they could be a place to make little artworks and messages…posting a poem for example. Just that….is…..enough
On the last day of the world
I would want to plant a tree
not the fruit
the tree that bears the fruit
is not the one that was planted
I want the tree that stands
in the earth for the first time
with the sun already
and the water
touching its roots
in the earth full of the dead
and the clouds passing
one by one
over its leaves
