HubSpot Design Certification

I am happy to announce that I am officially HubSpot Design certified! A lot of my projects in the past couple months have been based in HubSpot. These include the projects I have worked on at Spin Group. The design certification is for building templates that customers and clients can use. I will be storing this certificate on the “career-portfolio” section of my website here.

The process of getting this cert was challenging but straightforward. I had a client who needed one of their insurance pages created. On HubSpot, I had to create a “template,” a reusable page format that a client can build webpages with. This template contained a lot of what the design certification required: A navigation panel, photos, and some of the other standard ingredients. However, I needed to add several features that I was not as familiar with. These included a photo that disappeared on mobile view. I had to use a media query in order to accomplish this. I also had to create a collapsing menu that turns into a “hamburger” style menu on mobile view. HubSpot provided a tutorial in order to do this, but it was still challenging and involved some tinkering with the CSS and JavaScript template files.

There were actually 12 requirements which can be viewed here. They include including a custom CSS stylesheet, including a global module, and several other requirements that emphasized best practice on HubSpot’s Template Builder.

Overall this was a great growth experience and challenged me to push myself a little deeper into web developer land. There were several challenging aspects of the project which included creating a fully responsive navigation menu and using media queries. The website itself is just okay in my opinion but any website will do when submitting. Please reach out to myself or Spin Group if you desire a custom HubSpot web template!
