There’s a promo video at the bottom of this post for those that don’t care to read 😉
We are pleased to announce the release of our add-ons (plugins) for Genesis 2.0 child themes. The Styles Plugin by Brainstorm Media is an innovative new plugin that allows easy and fast style customizations of WordPress themes via WordPress’s own customizer.
If you are a non-coder but like the speed, security, designs, etc of Studiopress and the Genesis Framework, you are about to be blown away.
Our add-ons let you change background colors, link and hover colors, fonts (including Google webfonts), font sizes, font colors, and more! If you don’t want to (or don’t have the time) to learn to code, Styles add-ons for Genesis are your answer.
Developers – create live mockups in minutes
Developers may not like the idea of a plugin to do customizations they would rather (and are more comfortable to) dive into code and make the changes. I know the feeling, I’m the same way.
However… how often do you have clients that aren’t sure of their color schemes, or request to see samples of what the site may look like with a different feel, style or look? Styles add-ons for Genesis makes these changes extremely simple and fast.
Take a look at the image below to get a quick glimpse into the ease and power of these plugins.
Genesis 2.0 Styles add-ons available now
At the time of this post, we have 5 add-ons available for immediate purchase. The add-ons are available for the following themes.
Assuming we receive the interested we expect to see in our add-ons, we will continue to release add-ons as Studiopress updates and releases new child themes.
If you’d like to have an add-on for a specific Genesis 2.0 child theme, contact us and let us know to consider it!
This may or may not be a limited time offer… but right now you can get 15% off when you buy 2 add-ons, and 25% off when you buy 3 or more. The discount will automatically be added to your cart when you checkout.

What do you think about Styles Plugin and our add-ons for Genesis? Feel free to let us know in the comments.
Scott Buehler says
Awesome idea Mike! Love the concept of being able to style the theme visually. This is what made the Prose theme so awesome for people, but StudioPress backed away from it for whatever reason. Now you’ve restored the Prose ability in most (all?) of the HTML5 themes! Love.
Mike Hemberger says
Thanks Scott! I hope others like them too 😉
Dave Porter says
Great work on these add-ons..
I emailed you to advise your link to the Latent demo was broken. But maybe you didn’t get it!
This is the bad link.
http://demo.thestizmedia .dev /latent/
I think the .dev/ should be .com/

Thanks Dave! Good catch on the broken link, fixed now.

I love the potential of this plugin. Purchased it, but I can’t get the darn thing to work.
Hi Joseph, thanks for your purchase!
Lots of people are using these plugins and loving them. Send a support request here and we’ll get you squared away.
The plugin’s install like any other plugin, then just go to Appearance > Customize in your Dashboard and start tweaking. Feel free to send a support request if you need though.
Styles plugin seems to make site extremely sluggish. Is there a way around this, e.g., to eliminate the majority of unused Google fonts, etc.?
Hi Ellyn, Styles will only slow your site down if you load a lot of Google fonts. It works the same as loading a bunch of large images to a post/page… it’s not actually Styles that’s slowing it down, it’s the choice to add a lot of large font libraries on your site.
So, the simple answer is to try to limit the amount of used Google fonts to 1 or 2. Typically it’s a heading and a body font.
I hope that helps!
