Dallas, TX – Simply Design group is a leader in web design, web development and web strategy. But it hasn’t always been that way. It all started when I first heard those unforgettable tones of the dial up modem reaching out to the great unknown of the internet. I was enamored by the idea of the internet and that I could publish something of my own and could play solitaire without any software! Remember when you couldn’t spend too much time online because you might miss a phone call? My how things have changed.

In the late 1990s I was introduced to high-speed Internet and something called FrontPage. It was the precursor to most web publishing software created by Microsoft (which was cool at the time). It was with FrontPage that I created my very first website – a personal site of course. Not long after that I began teaching myself a handful of programs that were useful to website publishing and found a job working alongside two other guys at a local university. Our office was about 10 feet underground although there were a few windows – out of which we could only see out of about 6 inches of daylight.

One day the 3 “web guys” (me, Chris, and Jason) were kicking around the idea of taking on some side work building websites for people we knew who needed some help creating a webpages. It seemed like a reasonable idea and the prospect of earning more than $7 per hour was motivating as well. On top of that, it might mean that we could get out of that basement!  A few months went by and we had each found our own side projects, but found that we always need help from each other in order to complete them. At that moment we realized that we could accomplish more as a team than as individuals, so we decided to form a company and tackle bigger and more complex projects, and set out sites on an above-ground office! It wasn’t long after that day, that Simply Design Group was born.

(The Original Business Card)

In October of 2004, the crazy idea of Simply Design Group was brought to life by 4 individuals with a passion for creativity and digital technology. Our goal was to “quit our day jobs” and pursue our passion for the web and the endless possibilities it offered. That seemed like a much better idea to us than what our current jobs offered – where our office was in the basement!
