A Message From Carl Barenbrug, Creative Director
I like to consider Minimalissimo a little bit different to other design-focused sites and magazines out there. We’re not just dedicated to the niche market of minimalism, but we also do things differently when it comes to advertising. Every site has overheads and looks to be a profitable business, but often, that comes at the expense of shameless advertising. I don’t think anybody appreciates obtrusive ads being plastered all over the place when all you’re trying to do is read a web page. We have never done that and we never will. Your reading experience is what’s really important.
With that in mind, I want to experiment with a model that centres around support and kindness, rather than advertising.
We’d like to build a better and more direct relationship with our readers. To continue to improve the reading and visual experience, and determine what areas are most valued. We want to build a small community of people whom we can speak with when we’re looking to experiment with an idea. To gain feedback and explore new ideas together.
We also want to allow you as a reader to monetarily support the site without the need to buy anything. You will have the opportunity to make a recurring (yearly or monthly) donation and become a member of Minimalissimo, where you’ll get access to a library of perks that we’ll periodically update over time. At the moment, you’ll receive:
- Digital magazine bundle
- Wallpapers library
- Members email list to discuss plans, ideas, and experiments
If you like what we do at Minimalissimo, this is the best way to help us continue to do it well and do it better. Thank you for your support!
