CHRISCARPENTER.DESIGN

Chris Carpenter is a third­ year design student at Cardiff School of Art and Design. His expertise are in typography, infographics and video animation. His site, chriscarpenter.design, was one of the first live .design sites. As he told us, "I swapped it over from a traditional .co.uk domain because .design was far better suited to my professional practice."

“I'm thrilled with the new domain. I've been waiting for this domain alias for a long long time, and I'm glad to be an 'early bird' for this particular TLD.”

-CHRIS CARPENTER, CHRISCARPENTER.DESIGN

AARONMARQUEZ.DESIGN

Aaron Marquez is a freelance web designer out of Bellingham, Washington and one of the first to launch a .design site. He began designing at an early age when he won Adobe Creative Suite in a competition. He told us, "I used to use aaronmarquezdesign.com, but when I found out .design would be available I got excited. Now aaronmarquez.design is my primary domain, the other is a redirect."

“.design showed as something I could 'pre­order.' I instantly fell in love with the idea as it fits my studio name perfect - AaronMarquez.Design: it’s a domain name and representation of my work.”

-AARON MARQUEZ, AARONMARQUEZ.DESIGN

ENERGI.DESIGN

Energi.design is an award-winning motion graphics and web design/UI/UX company, previously based in London and San Francisco, and now in Munich. After adopting a number of domain names such as energi.click, energidesign.com and clickenergi.com, Energi.design was able to acquire the perfect domain to match: energi.design. As Steve told us, “Energi.design is the actual name of my company, founded 20 years ago. So finally having the exact domain name to match it is perfect.”

“The name perfectly matches the company—and brand. When I learned about .design becoming available, I signed up right away.”

-STEVE HOLMES, ENERGI.DESIGN

HYBERT.DESIGN

Hybert.design has been a family-owned graphic design company since being founded in 1975. They specialize in design for publishers, marketers and businesses. The company was one of the first to adopt a .design domain. As they said, “Design is part of our company name so the logical step was to transition over to the new domain to enhance our brand.”

“The new domain is more descriptive, inviting, and memorable. I also believe it enhances our authority and keeps us up to date.”

-TOM HYBERT, HYBERT.DESIGN

ALTERWARE.DESIGN

Alterware is a creative design agency founded by Renato Santos in 2007. The company started with small number of clients, but has since expanded internationally. They currently work with clients in Portugal, UK, Italy, France, Angola and Mozambique. When we asked what Renato thought of .design he told us, “The switch from .net was the obvious choice to make, it’s a no brainer. .Design says it all, It's the core of what we do. Its in our DNA.”

“I believe It [.design] differentiates my brand and opens the door to potential new opportunities all around the world.”

-RENATO SANTOS, ALTERWARE.DESIGN

BROX.DESIGN

BROX Design began as a hobby for Ivan Radosavljević & Predrag Bozovic, over 16 years ago. And, when we spoke with Ivan, he told us “Deep inside it is still a hobby, as we do it with our hearts." Today it is a business with expertise in graphic, interior and web design; as well as fashion and leather goods. Their client list includes big brands such as Harrods, Armani Jeans and The Four Seasons Hotel.

“.design represents an important step in the promotion of our company. It is a simple and effective tool to broadcast what we do.”

-IVAN RADOSAVLJEVIĆ, BROX.DESIGN

3877.DESIGN

//3877 is a design firm that primarily works in architecture, but they also offer interior design services along with brand development and graphic design. Their style? Clean and contemporary. As for why they switched to .design? “Because it talked more about our brand. We don’t want to be a mainstream firm… .design says that we are a bit different and we are okay with that,” said David Shove-Brow, Partner at //3877.

“It speaks more directly to who we are and what we do. .com, .net, etc are too generic … we don’t need to be in the same mix as lawyers, accountants and other businesses … we want to go after a more direct audience.”

-DAVID SHOVE-BROW, 3877.DESIGN

TRANSOM.DESIGN

Transom.design is a design firm in Seattle, Washington with over 30 years of design experience. Their expertise ranges from web design to brand creation and everything in between. The company had struggled finding the right domain name: “at the early stages we had unwisely chosen transomco.com, which led to confusion regarding our name.” Now they’re the happy owners of transom.design. Their favorite thing about the domain? “Clarity. It says who we are and what we do.” Watch the .design founder series: transom.design here.

“When I heard about the .design top-level domain it seemed the obvious choice to clarify both what we do and our name.”

-ANDREW MEANS, TRANSOM.DESIGN

Porkbun is the perfect solution! I easily transferred all my domains over and now I'm paying much less than with my former "market leader" registrar. The UI is clean and straightforward, and the few times I've had questions I received an immediate personal response!

I like being able to work with a company that is responsive and there are actual people who are available to help, I’m not very tech savvy and it’s great to have a service-oriented URL registrar. Porkbun is also more cost effective than other registrars.

– Drew Force

Signing up for my domain name through Porkbun was so easy; the website is uncluttered and easy to use. I designed my site through the free Weebly integration and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!
