Simpleism was formed in 2014 initially as a pseudonym portfolio for Brisbane based digital designer, Paige Di Bartolo. Since then, it has become a successful freelance agency for local small businesses. Simpleism is still completely run and operated by Paige (“hello!”), who is helping businesses reach their goals with modern web & product design, uniquely tailored illustrations and diverse marketing solutions.
More about Paige…
Hey there! I’m Paige, the face behind Simpleism. I originally created Simpleism because I was always trying to come up with a word that defined my style: a bit like minimalism but with a little more “pop”. I was frustrated everytime I wanted to use the word Simpleism because my computer would always try to autocorrect me… so I beat it at its own game and made my dream a reality.
While I’m not working, you can find me endlessly working on home improvement, be it DIY in the backyard or finding the perfect coffee table. I also love spending time with my little family including my Husband Brandon, my son Tilian and my crazy “Chuggle” Pepsi. I’m great at doing some light TV binging and especially love Schitt’s Creek, Regular Show and RuPaul’s Drag Race. Well enough about me… check out how I got to where I am today:
