The Objective

A portfolio site whose strong visual content loads quickly, consistently and flawlessly in China. 

While Squarespace makes it easy to build, launch, and manage a beautiful website easily, GOODSTEIN faced the challenge that many other gorgeous portfolio sites do in China - showing off that content in a performative way in China.

Thoughts on Chinafy

 Georg Warga | Founder & Creative Director of GOODSTEIN

Why Chinafy?

"The premise is simple. Build a website with Squarespace or Wix and make it work in China, including video assets hosted on Vimeo."

How did you come across Chinafy?

"We’ve tried all kinds of workarounds: CDNs, redundant hosting in and outside China. All of these solutions are frustrating and a giant waste of resources. After researching time and time again we found the Chinafy blog and some case studies inspired us to give it a shot."

What challenges you faced initially with Squarespace site in China? 

"Squarespace just doesn’t work in China. None of the website builders do. If the sites load at all then only very… very… slowly."

Anything else?

"We are a creative agency based in Shanghai and we work for global clients. A lot of our work is video driven. We have been searching for years to showcase our work without a compromise in China. Technology just has to work for us and Chinafy does."
