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.
