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 completely run and operated by Paige (👋🏻), 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 initially created Simpleism because I often found myself trying to articulate my design style in one word: minimalist but with a little “zing”. I was frustrated every time I wanted to use the word Simpleism because autocorrect would always pop up… so I broke the rules and created a new word.
While I’m not working, you can find me fiddling with home improvement (be it DIY in the backyard or finding the perfect coffee table). I enjoy spending time with my little family: my Husband Brandon, my son Tilian and my crazy “Chuggle” Pepsi and love bingeing TV, especially: Schitt’s Creek, Arrested Development, and RuPaul’s Drag Race. Well enough about me… check out how I got to where I am today:
