Minimize® was founded in 2001 by Colin McStravick, following his 20+ year career in architecture, with a focus on creating websites for design-savvy clients in A/E/C related industries.
Since 2009, Kelly Perso Design has provided high caliber graphic, branded environment, and web design for a variety of A/E/C clients, clean energy companies, small businesses, and non-profit organizations.
Our direct experience in the field facilitates the synthesis of
creative design with advanced web development strategies.
We “demystify the mysteries of the internet”; simplifying the complexities involved with creating and maintaining websites.
Visual clarity, intuitive UI, and carefully crafted ease-of-use are our core development principles.
simple, clean design for the web
Yeah you know me.
Colin has a degree in Architecture (Go Bearcats!) and worked at a large Portland Architecture firm for 15+ years. Kelly worked in the same firms’ marketing department for several years; together they collaborated on various projects and marketing proposals.
Since then, Kelly and Colin have been honored to work with some of the best designers and creative thinkers around, creating beautiful, highly effective websites for A/E/C firms of all shapes and sizes.
We’ve been there. We understand how designers think and communicate, both verbally and visually. We get it.
