About Design Theory
& Our Creatives

Who We Are and the Passions That Drive Us


The reason why we’re in business is simply because we want to see people succeed. Back in 2008 when Design Theory started, we found that there were things we knew about publishing creative design and effective functioning software to make web sites digital media. Our target base is small businesses (organizations of 20 or less people) and solo-entrepreneurs (people who have taken a hobby to the marketplace on their own). We relate to these types because we are also part of that community.


Over the years we’ve learned a lot in many areas of the interwebs, creative design, and strategic business initiatives for growth. Because we have this knowledge from working with many individuals as well as real world experiences, we can offer all of that knowledge to you to help grow your business.

Jean Perpillant

Co-Owner | Brand Strategist

I started Design Theory in late 2008. With my background in IT, web design is a wonderful way to unleash my creativity. There’s a great sense of fulfillment when a client project is done and they’re happy with the end product.  Incorporating photography into our services has been a passion of mine.  Managing the team that we have is not only fun but a blessing. Pheonetically prounouncing my name is “SZ-Ahhh-N”

It’s All About Relationships

The reason we’ve been in business for so long and still have our first clients active with us to this day along with the newer ones we’ve brought into our family is all due to our values and importance to establishing and building great business relationships. Every organization or business will go through growing pains and our job is to help you navigate that with the skills, experience, and knowledge we have developed over years and through many industries. If you don’t have a working relationship with your current agency, give us a call or schedule a meeting to learn more about our process.

    Join Our Team

    We’re looking to work with and network with talented creatives. Below are some of the areas that are currently open, if you or know someone who’d be a great fit, please share this page with them.

    WordPress Front End Developer

    Ideal candidate would have experience with WP, CSS, and the Divi theme (by Elegant Themes). There would be minimal direct interaction for you and the client, as we’ll manage the project, tasks, and requirements. Pay would be per hour with expectations and checkpoints for review and revisions. We typically work on small business websites that have under 20 pages and deliver anywhere from two to four weeks. 

    Graphic Designer

    Most of our client projects will need for custom graphics. Sometimes they’ll need to be created from the inspiration and ideas of the client. For that we have an intake form to make this discovery process easier. We usually will relay messages and updates between you and the client, but would like to progress to autonomy for you and the client to communicate as that will expedite efforts and the tasks of the project.

    “I had the honor of getting to know Jean Perpillant, owner of Design Theory over the last few years. I found his professionalism both behind and infront of the camera outstanding. In a recent photo shoot for Golf Tips Magazine, the participants made a point of acknowledging the ease of working with Jean, and eagerly look forward to the next time. Thank you for exceeding our video & photography needs.”
