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 lead by Paige (👋🏻) and assisted by a small team of creatives to help organisations reach their goals with modern web & product design, uniquely tailored illustrations and diverse marketing solutions.
Meet the Team
PaigeFounder & All-Round Creative
Hey there! I’m Paige – Simpleism’s founder. I initially created Simpleism because I often found myself trying to articulate my design style in one word: minimalist but with a bit of “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).
Heya! I’m Chloe, lovely to meet you! I look forward to working together and producing some beautiful designs. I love creating neutral-toned, hand-drawn inspired graphics with a playful textured finish.
You’ll mostly find me exploring exciting ideas and designs on Photoshop or endlessly scrolling through Pinterest.
When I’m not on the screen I’ll be enjoying my record collection, catching some live tunes or sipping filter coffee.
PepsiDoggo & Chief Leg Warmer
As a dedicated and loyal part of the Simpleism team, Pepsi is responsible for keeping strangers at bay with her loud barking, licking toes and cleaning up crumbs from lunch.
When she’s not hard at work, you’ll find her burying her snoot in a warm elbow ditch, digging up the backyard at home and chewing on toddler toys. You might also catch her in action in the background of a Zoom meeting as she likes to make guest appearances from time to time.
With new vitality, Simpleism comes back with a boom as Paige rebuilds the business as a creative studio focusing on web, illustration & design.
We add a range of clients to our belt in collaboration with Kognent and Buckham & Duffy, including: GCG, Ausgrid, Absolute Domestics and Master Builders QLD.
