Design, in its broadest sense, is the enabler of the digital era – it’s a process that creates order out of chaos, that renders technology usable to business. Design means being good, not just looking good.

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.”

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
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
Brian Holdsworth created Holds Worth Design eight years ago. Their services span from web design to graphic design and brand consultations. In their eight years of business they’ve cultivated an impressive portfolio of custom websites. We asked Brian what the .design TLD means to him and he said, “It perfectly encompasses what we do… It indicates to our audience what we do by keywords that they recognize.”
“We switched from a .com and we did so because this TLD more accurately describes what we do as opposed to something generic and undefined.”
