WANNA' KNOW WHAT I GIVE A SHIT ABOUT? HERE'S THE DEAL ::
👉Good, fresh, bold design doesn’t need to be a luxury. It can be accessible. (And damn, is it worth it.)
👉🏼Your branding and website matter — but not as much as what you ACTUALLY do. Get a dope site + unique branding sorted, then get back to what you do.
👉🏽Trends are bullshit. They’re all hype — and building a brand based on hype ain’t ever a good idea.
👉🏾Design can tell a story (if you do it correctly). That’s what Good As Gold is here for. Make a statement. Make people pay attention. And don’t apologise for it. EVER.
First up ::
THE D-LOW ON the SQUARESPACE DESIGN KITS
Squarespace is a website platform that’s a little different to Wordpress + the other big website players, so the Good As Gold design kits aren’t your typical website ‘template’.
Squarespace already has pre-designed templates to choose from which you can then customise in the design settings to set up your site however the fuck you want.
Problem is, those Squarespace templates are VERY simple and sometimes a little ‘blocky’ and basic — which means they can be hard to customise and freshen up if you’re not a designer, or if you’re not ready to hire one just yet. So that’s where the Good As Gold design kits come in to play; they give you everything you need to set up your site to get it lookin’ fresh AF + on-brand.
Here’s how they work:
1 :: CHOOSE YOUR DESIGN KIT
Take a peek in the shop + get your hands on a design kit you’re into. Each template is limited to 35 purchases only — and once they’re gone, they’re gone, got it?
2 ::DOWNLOAD YER FILES + FIRE UP PHOTOSHOP
You’ll receive an email with a link to download all your files (including Launch ‘Er :: Your One-Stop-Shop Website Content Planner). You’ll also need Photoshop to edit your design kit, but don’t stress if you don’t have it — you can grab a free trial, easy-peasy (all of the links + info you need come with your purchase).
3 :: START JAMMIN’
Crack open the hella’-easy-to-follow tutorial vids + start customising the design kit to suit your brand. NO CODING REQUIRED, fam.
P.S.: All Good As Gold Studio design kits come with dope AF design guides to help you work with the layouts and know what will look good (and what won’t).
LAUNCH YER SITE!
Once you’re good to go + you’ve pimped your site, it’s go time! Each design kit includes a basic checklist for you to follow to make sure you’re good (as gold), and nothin’ goes sideways on launch day.
Own that mother*cker like the BO-double-S that you are.
Meet the crew…

“Working with Sian was super fun + easy! As always, super profesh. I’ve always wanted a handwritten logo and you nailed the designs and vibe of my brand.
I loved that you whipped it up and sent it over in a cool PDF with all the deets on how to make the rest of the process smooth. Thank you for being quick with the revisions too!”
