Designly is a small team of designer/developer halflings who build premium web templates for startups and developers. We help our fellow builders make their sites look the best they can, without having to hire a designer or deal with lousy code.

We began in 2011 as an online graphic design studio serving clients from all over the world. Most of these projects were great, but we soon realized that our favorite clients were startups and developers who were building killer products, software, and services.

We noticed that many of them were struggling to find good design solutions and spent way too much time sifting through piles of online content looking for a simple admin template or a web app theme to fit their project. So we decided to use our skills to help them out. The rest, as they say, is history.

We like donuts with absurd toppings, Batman, and N64. Our office radio fluctuates between the Wu-Tang Clan and Taylor Swift depending on the time of day. Sometimes we like to chirp on the facespace.


Steve Lewis

Steve was born and raised in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania and studied design at Edinboro University. He has been drawing since he could hold a pencil, and playing on computers for almost as long. When he's not busy making the web a better place, he can be found at home reading a good book, enjoying fine scotch, or laying the smack down on teenagers via Xbox Live (or vice versa.) He has also been working on a new blog, but that's not ready just yet.


Chris Millard

Chris was born amongst the watery inlets of the Puget Sound. He spent his formative years playing soccer and baseball while his parents did their best to fight off the early signs of computer addiction. He completed his undergraduate education at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR and (after a brief stint as a bartender) is currently enrolled in the MBA program at the Joseph M. Katz School of Business. In his (limited) free time he enjoys PC gaming, cheering for the Seattle Sounders, and making craft cocktails.


Nathan Speller

Nate is a coder, designer, and founder of Designly.com. Riding the wave of accelerator programs, he is both a Y Combinator and AlphaLab alum. With a Masters in Computer Science from Cornell University he sought out to solve the big problems in the world (like what color your website buttons should be). When he's not making themes you can find him at nathanspeller.com.
