Adding a site logo

You can upload a logo image to appear in place of your site title. This is a great way to promote your brand on your site.

Clicking your logo image always leads to your homepage.

Add a site title

Before adding your logo, ensure you've replaced the default Your Site Title placeholder text with the name of your site because:

  • Search engines index the title and display it in search results, so setting a site title is a best practice for SEO.
  • The title displays in browser tabs, helping visitors identify it.

For more help, visit Adding a site title.

Tip: Different text may appear in search results and browser tabs depending on your SEO title format.

Prepare your logo image

For best results:

  • Before uploading your logo, ensure it's a similar height to that which you'd like it to display. Each template treats logos differently, and some use the original image size as the display size.
  • When in doubt, it's better to start with a larger image, as smaller images may become pixelated when they resize.
  • Your logo can be in .jpg, .gif, or .png format. See our image requirements for more information.
  • The logo replaces the site title. To include text in your logo, see our tips below.

If you don't have a logo yet, you can create one with Squarespace Logo.

You can also open the Logo & Title panel in the Home Menu by clicking Design, then Logo & Title. If you're logged in but don't see the left panel, you may need to collapse the site preview.


Style the logo image

After uploading the logo image, you can change the size of the logo to customize the design of your header. To learn more, visit Version 7.1 style and design options.

Logo display varies by template. It may appear differently on mobile than on desktop.
  • In most templates, you can change the logo's size. Some templates have maximum heights or widths.
  • Where the logo displays is set by the template. The position may be different on mobile. In some templates, the position is adjustable.

To learn more about your site's logo settings, explore your template's style options and visit our template guides.

Note: Styling the logo is only supported on desktop.

Remove a logo

How you remove a logo image on a computer depends on your site's version. When you remove a logo, your site title will reappear.

To remove a site logo, edit the header.

  1. In the Home Menu, click Design.
  2. Click Logo & Title.
  3. Scroll down and hover over your logo image. Click the trash can icon to delete the image.
  4. Click Save.


  1. Tap Settings, then tap Logo & Title.
  2. Tap Logo.
  3. Tap Remove under the image.

Create a logo with Squarespace Logo

Note: Squarespace Logo is only supported on desktop.

With your paid account, you can create free logos using Squarespace Logo. To get started, click Create a New Logo in the Logo & Title panel.


Use a logo with text

It isn't possible to display a logo and site title at the same time. If you'd like to do so, include your site title text in the logo image.

Note: Text in the image file you use for your logo isn't indexable by search engines. We recommend keeping your site title text in the Site Title field when using a logo.


Transparent backgrounds

To create a logo without a background color, ensure your logo is a .png file with a transparent background. You can use third-party software to create this, or Squarespace Logo creates transparent backgrounds automatically.

Note: If you edit your image with our built-in Image Editor, it saves as a .jpg, and all transparency will be lost. To maintain the .png format, use third-party software instead.

Redirect the logo

Clicking your logo image always leads to your homepage. The logo clickthrough can’t direct to a different page of your site without applying custom code.

Please note that adding code to your site is an advanced modification. While we can't offer more help on this topic, you can view this relevant post from our Squarespace Forum for more information and example code.
