Semplice is the first fully customisable portfolio system based on Wordpress. Built by designers, for designers.
What’s the story behind Semplice? How did it come into existence?
My co-founder, Mike, and I originally built Semplice for our personal portfolios. We were dreaming about a perfect design portfolio, completely customised with beautifully branded case studies for each project. No other portfolio tool out there offered what we needed, so we built it ourselves. We imagined other creatives felt the same way; as a designer you have a specific vision for your portfolio, but not necessarily the time or coding knowledge to make it happen. With Semplice, you can make it happen.
What sets Semplice apart from other portfolio builders?
Many portfolio builders are focused on maintaining the status quo with trendy templates. Semplice is focused on building with pride. You have the freedom and power to create a completely custom website, no coding required. If you do know how to code, you can take it even further. Semplice is built on Wordpress, so you have the power of the Wordpress community behind you. What plans do you have for the future of Semplice? Just last year we launched our latest product, Semplice 4. We stripped Semplice down and built it again from scratch, streamlining the experience and adding a ton of helpful new features. Now we continue releasing new Semplice 4 updates, like our new navigation options or recent Unsplash integration, that make it even better. Aside from that, we have a big project underway for Semplice. It’s focused on our belief that portfolios should be a living thing, continually updated as a designer evolves in their career.
