Choosing A Venue for Gateway Project

Initially, I chose Squarespace for my project because I found a template that checked all of the boxes I had for elements I knew that I wanted to incorporate. However, upon discovering that keeping your website past a two week trial period cost money, I found a similar template on Wix (for free!) that only required a little altering of the format. The template I choose fit with my project structurally: each page flows between the others in a way that suggests that each tab hold different content, yet with a similar background and uniform color/design scheme that does not throw the viewer/reader for a loop. Also, the navigation menu was always present on the top of the site in all tabs. I did not want a disappearing menu because, when I encounter that online, it often feels disorienting. Ease of navigation is crucial, especially if I want my readers to spend time going through the actual work.
