Anthony Casalena shares a few concepts that embody the process of minimalism as well as Squarespace’s guiding principles.

Founder and CEO of Squarespace, Anthony Casalena took the stage in June to speak on the CreativeMornings global theme of Minimal. Wanting to create a website for himself, Anthony began building what would later become Squarespace in his dorm room. Reflecting on those early years, Anthony speaks to the idea of minimalism as a process, not an aesthetic.

Through removing unnecessary lines and throwing out good ideas, Anthony was able to hone in on what was really important. He shares that experience at CreativeMornings/NewYork.
