Squarespace Template Showcase: Niajah
Niajah is a lifestyle blogger, event coordiantor, photographer, tech engineer, student... (seriously, what can't this girl do?!). She truly embodies everything it means to be a girlboss, plus, she's just an amazing person!
Niajah used our Derive Template for her new blog and business design. I also worked one on one with Niajah to create her new brand. Between the new gorgeous brand, the Derive template and Niajah's creativity, the website looks absolutely stunning!
We love the mix of her professional photography and her color palette, so gorg! And the way she adapted the layout to really make it her own.

Name: Niajah Thom
What do you do/what is your business?: I am a Tech Engineer by day and online student and lifestyle blogger by night. I'm split between being an early bird and a night owl (how fun!). On the weekends you'll find me coordinating someone's wedding and oh yeah I'm definitely going to cry when they say "I do". If there isn't a wedding in town you can also find me snapping pictures of my family and friends they like to call me a photographer! If all else fails I am a professional Teen Mom TV Watcher. Pass the popcorn.
What or who inspires you the most?: My younger self inspires me, family and God. My younger self keeps me own on toes, I'm always in pursuit of making "her" proud and accomplishing the goals I set forth for myself. My family is so proud of me and my accomplishments thus far and I can only hope to keep going and making sure their smiles never leave their faces. God ... whew! the guiding force in my life, he inspires me to surpass the bounds and lengths that I don't think exist but somehow they do.
What template did you purchase?: Derive Squarespace Template aka the one that spoke to my soul (LOL)
Why did you choose that particular template?: I chose this template because of the clean lines and overall flow of the website. I was searching for something that would easy to navigate and had a modern aesthetic with a touch of femininity!
Why did you want a new website?: I didn't have a website and desperately needed one. I had been wanting to launch a blog for six whole years! I made a promise to myself that when I launch my website it was going to be 100% professional looking and nothing less.
Why did you choose to purchase one of my templates, rather than a competitors?: Erica seemed like a friend that I hadn't met yet. I was instantly drawn to her personality and something told me she would understand my vision exactly. I was SO right!
How did you feel before you created your new website?: Before I created my website I felt like I was in the dark. I knew exactly what I would want my site to look like, I just had no idea how I would get there - I knew I needed help so I went out looking for it. (Oh hey Erica!)
How do you feel now that you have launched your new site?: I am still in awe that I've launched my new site. I look at it and think wow look at what I created. I could not have done this without Erica, from the in depth video tutorials to her suggestions I owe so much to her guidance.
How do you think your business is going to benefit from your new website?: I get so excited when someone says "Do you have a website" or "How can I see your work" I love guiding them to my website and seeing the reactions on their face. Everyone loves my branding and I honestly can not blame them. I believe that my business will attract more clients and I'm excited to see my business grow!
How did you find the whole Squarespace Template process from purchase to launch?: All you need is a little bit of time and the process is SEAMLESS. Erica's videos was a true life saver and I felt in control the entire time. If you're looking for something easy, fun and time sensitive purchase her templates!!
What's your fav series on Netflix right now?: Hmmm. I'm not much of a netflix girl but have you watched Insecure on HBO yet? You're totally missing out if not. :)
