5 reasons to use Semplice for your portfolio

We’d share 10 reasons, but you’ll decide for yourself anyway. That’s what we like about you.

COMPLETE FREEDOM

Create based on your own designs

Semplice is not a template. It’s grid-based so you can design on your own, then build it exactly how you want it. No coding knowledge required.

TOTAL OWNERSHIP

Full control, full privacy

Semplice is self-hosted, open-source software. You have the freedom to choose your host and manage your site. We don’t have your data. We don’t see your visitors. We don’t interfere with your content.

NO SUBSCRIPTIONS

One-time payment

Semplice does not require a subscription. We’re a bit old fashioned that way. If you don’t want to pay monthly, you can buy it once and it’s yours forever.

INTUITIVE & EFFECIENT

Built by and for designers

We are a team of designers, which is why we build the best product for them. We know you care about the details because we do too. We understand your workflow because we’re in it every day. Our CMS is beautiful and intuitive because we know you expect nothing less.
