A Little History

I have always loved technology and building things with it. I built a crystal radio when I was 10. I wrote my first BASIC program when I was 11 on an Atari 400. I wrote my first assembly language program on an Apple IIe when I was 13. I wanted to understand what made the software tick so I started studying electronics. I built a robot based on a 6502 minicomputer in high school.

I studied Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M and went on to work in the semiconductor industry at Dallas Semiconductor. I spearheaded several successful projects at Dallas Semiconductor. Two of the projects I initiated and managed were singled out by the CEO in company-wide Quarterly Meetings.

I cofounded Elinc in 1999 with a colleague from Dallas Semiconductor to produce practice management software for veterinarians. Elinc was acquired by Eklin in 2005 and subsequently acquired by VCA Antech in 2009.

I founded Impirus in 2009 to develop software to help small law firms and solo practitioners. I was working on an electronic signature feature for the Impirus CMS when I had the idea of using a webcam to capture an realtime image of the signer. I was so excited by the idea I decided to cofound Vignature to provide image-based electronic signatures.

Aviator is a striking template with full-bleed images that present an incredible visual experience to the visitor.

Aviator is perfect for a number of different use cases including, but not limited to: portfolios, restaurants, architecture, and fashion.

 

How the Info Page Works

You can have an amazing website up and running just by filling out some information in your site settings and choosing a  background image. Just go to Site Settings > Site and fill in your tagline, site description, phone number, address and email. This is what appears in the content area of your info page. Connect your social accounts, and links will show up as well.

You can also rename this page and URL, or set any other page as your info pageā€”it doesn't have to be your home page.

 

Landing Page Layout Options

There are three layouts you can use on your info page: Offset (default), Poster, and Business Card.

You can change the background overlay behind the content on the Info Page or turn it off entirely. Style Editor > Colors > Info Page Content Overlay Color and Style Editor > Options > Info Page Content Overlay.

In addition, you can choose to use a Freeform Text area on the Info Page, which you can drag any Squarespace blocks into to add your content. Style Editor > Options > Freeform Text on Info Page.

 

Background Images

You can set two different background images in the Style Editor just by uploading a file. Info Page Background Image will appear on your Info Page and Background Image will appear on all other pages. You can also delete the existing files and set a Background Color.

Sitewide Background Overlay

You can also set a separate background overlay for the two background images in the Style Editor. Choose the color and level of opacity in the Color Picker. Style Editor > Colors > Info Page Background Overlay and Background Overlay.

 

Contact Info Display Options

You can choose which elements of your contact info show on the pages other than your Info Page. This is found in the Style Editor under Options > Tagline and Contact Info.
