With the new year, I am making a big change. I am bringing the Benny Gold brand back to its original roots as a personal design project. The brand was never meant to get as big as it did. I am thankful for the journey that it took me on but it is time to make a change.
Benny Gold’s story is as streetwear as it gets. From growing up on an isolated Key West island drawing and skating with friends, to attending Savannah College of Art and Design, to moving out west to pursue graphic design and later creating his own namesake brand; this episode is about hard work, acting on impulse and making meaningful connections as means to entrepreneurial success. Listen in as the accomplished creative takes a deep dive into the progression of his career, including the time he approached his hero, Keith Hufnagel, a moment that changed his life forever.

This Black Friday we are breaking them out and making them available for 1 day only. See you then — 968 Valencia Street.
