Philosophy

You should be empowered to manage your own content.

Traditional web developers often hold their clients' content hostage so they can charge for simple changes and updates for years. The website we'll create together will allow you and your team to be the driver, forever. You are given complete control of your website after the build so you can mange your own content, or so we can collaborate on updates. Your online presence can grow in unison with your business.

 
 
 
 

Client Focus

You'll have dedicated focus for the duration of your build, ensuring a true partnership.

I only take on one client at a time. Undivided attention for the duration of the project opens the door to projects that are completed in as little as one week after content is supplied.

 
 
 
 

Stability

When you choose Minimist Design to build your website, you can forget about maintenance charges & IT overhead. 

Your website will be hosted on enterprise-level infrastructure with top-of-the-line security and 24/7 monitoring to ensure your website is always up & running and secure. If you've ever had a website built with plug-ins, or hosted on third party servers, you may know just how fragile the stability of your website can be.

 
 
 
 

Ease of Use

Built on Squarespace to facilitate rapid prototyping and usability.

There can be a steep learning curve with CMS tools like Wordpress or Drupal, and misconceptions about the customizability of Squarespace deter other web designers from utilizing an amazing tool that carefully balances form and function while being easy to edit and update.
