In Focus — Squarespace Design Kit
In Focus — Squarespace Design Kit
Got a portfolio worth bragging about? In Focus was made with photographers in mind, so it’s clean, minimal, and responsive as hell, with a big focus on the photography.
Layered with bold AF type and sleek, staggered image display options, In Focus is fun and eye-catching, so you’re not gonna get bored outta’ your mind (and neither are your potential customers).
Not a photographer but got a keen eye for slick photography and totes in love with In Focus anyway? Get amongst it and make it yours!
This sucker has your name on it if ::
You’re a photographer who’s sick of the basic AF Squarespace (and Wordpress) templates on the market. (Yeah, we get it.)
Obviously, you’re creative and want something you can put your own spin on. You wanna zhush shizz up, but not so much that it takes away from the main focus — your (stunning, jaw-dropping) photography. You want something fresh and clean that feels fun and different from other photographer websites. Because honestly? Nothing less will do.
Fresh designs. Limited AF.
No one likes a copycat. That’s why the Good as Gold design kits are limited to only 35 purchases each. So if you spy one you dig, grab ‘er now.
Here's what you need to use
the Design Kit ::
p.s. Don’t stress if you’re new to either of these platforms.
Squarespace is the most user-friendly, intuitive website platform out there, in my honest opinion (as someone who’s been designing websites for 8+ years). You’ll also get access to all of the video tutorials showing you how to use the Photoshop templates that come with your design kit. So, chill out. No worries. ✌
How it works ::
1 :: Download your files
including all Photoshop templates, additional docs, and tutorial links
2 :: Hit up the content planner
that comes with the kit to make sure you’ve got everything sorted before you dive in
3 :: Get amongst the video tutorials
(included with the design kit) that show you how to customise your kit for your brand
4 :: LAUNCH your site
out into the big ‘ol world and celebrate that shit. (Preferably with tequila.) Own that mother*cker like the BO-double-S that you are.
'In Focus' design notes + other shit you should know ::
There are a LOT of possibilities with the layout of the header. You can move the logo, social icons, menu, etc. as you wish
This design kit is very flexible overall, as it’s heavily based on the index pages within Squarespace
This design kit is heavily photography based, but if you want to use it and you’re not a photographer, I gotchu! You’ll get access to the design guide which includes top photography tips like how to choose photos + make sure they’re aligned with your brand
As with all Squarespace websites, you can easily add page options, such as a shop, a blog, or whatever your biz needs
You can easily remove or change the border size + colour. It’s a cinch.
Squarespace is hella’ easy to use, so if you love this kit but find there are one or two things you aren’t stoking on, you can easily jump into the design settings tab on Squarespace and change them to whatever you want. Easy-peasy.
All up, this is what ya get ::
A solid stash of design files, all downloadable as Photoshop templates where you can easily edit the colours, fonts, and images
A rundown on the design settings to use in Squarespace (This is where you can get all creative ‘n shit to edit ALL of the things: fonts, website spacing, padding, colours – whatever the f*ck you want, hombre)

Launch ‘er :: Your One-Stop-Shop Website Content Planner - ‘cause you can’t craft yourself a 20/10 website if you don’t know what content needs to go where. (Valued at $37 CAD)

THEN LET'S DO THIS.
👉What’s the difference between a design kit and a template?
Traditionally with websites on platforms such as Wordpress, templates are essentially a series of files you download and install on your website and it’s a pretty straightforward process. However, with Squarespace websites the process is a little different.
With Squarespace they already have a series of ‘Templates’ you choose from, and these form the base of your website. But these templates are SUPER basic and can be quite hard to customise (if you’re not a designer, or don’t want to hire one just yet) — so you need to get creative with how you use these templates and the Design settings within Squarespace.
And that’s where the Good as Gold Design Kits come in! It’s literally just that — a dope little kit of Photoshop templates, Squarespace Design settings, design guidebooks, video tutorials + more — to help you customise the shit outta your website and make it your own.
👉I've never used Squarespace before... Can I use these Design Kits?
FER SURE! In my opinion as someone who's been designing websites for 8+ years, Squarespace is the most intuitive easy to use platform in the game. Squarespace itself has a HUGE stash of tutorials and helpful articles (along with a really awesome support team), and the tutorials that come with the Design Kit will get you sussed + well on your way to creating a 20/10 website on Squarespace.
👉Is there coding involved with the kits?
NOPE! That’s part of the beauty of the Design kits… NO CODING. The kits are all setup using the design settings within Squarespace, and custom images which I’ll show you how to customise and install across your website.
👉Can I customise the kits to suit my Brand?
e.g. I don’t love the colours on the mockups you have, but I’d love to use my own brand colours.
You betcha. Thats another one of the rad things about the Design Kits — they’re SUPER easily changable to suit your current Branding. Each Kit also comes with a stash of suggested colour and font combinations, so if you’re not sure what goes well together, I gotchu.
👉I can’t be fucked installing the Design Kit on my site… Can you do it for me?
I can! If you’d like to purchase the additional Design Kit installation, you can find it + more info here.
👉How long will it take me to install the Design Kit and update my website?
If you can dedicate an hour each day from Monday-Friday for 2 weeks, you can 100% get yer new website up and running in that time. The tutorials and supporting content is designed to be as easy + quick to follow as possible. It's all of the shit you NEED to know and nothing more.
You can also dedicate a few full-days to your biz and go balls-to-the-wall and just GET IT DONE. It totally depends how you work best too.
