Notion X Super

I've been using Notion for the past year and found it a really useful tool for organizing and presenting my uni work. So when I found out that you can create websites using Notion I jumped to it and created a simple one-page site that links to my other projects on Notion.

What I liked the best about using Notion was the CMS capability. The ability to drag pages directly onto my Notion site is really convenient for me, as I keep most of my recent projects on Notion. As Notion handles device compatibility and spacing, I no longer have to worry about these issues.

However, as a designer, I found Notion lacking in the ability to customize the design of the site. But this is where Super comes in. You can use Super to transform your Notion site into a fully-functional site using CSS magic. Super itself has some really nicely designed templates that you can use to spice up your site. You can also dive into Supers CSS classes and edit to your heart's content if you want something more personal.

Super's downside is probably the price, which is $12 per month for one live website. If you're a university student, there are cheaper alternatives such as Webflow, so you need to take that into account.

Nevertheless, I find that it works for me since my primary goal for this website was to make it as easy as possible to keep it updated and relevant to the work I am doing at the time.
