A refreshing balance


of art and science.

SimpleNation was founded in the winter of 2000 as a Vermont-based startup: VtWebDesigners.com. Brothers Dustin and Brandon Rich formed the company while managing the states Vermont Business Environmental Partnership Green Hotels program, and the Vermont Mobilization for Global Justice. After years of managing these programs and their web outreach initiatives, SimpleNation was created as the technical extension of these programs. Since then the company has grown into a full fledge web design and marketing firm that has assisted Vermont and nation wide businesses gain world wide exposure. The past decade has been a successful one. We have worked with small businesses to non-profits to established industry leaders to develop, define, and communicate the memorable brand experience.
