About Us


The Open Web Design project was founded in November 2005 by Aaron "MonkeyMan" Nikula as a resource for users with no design skills to quickly put up a site and showcase their content and as a way for designers to share their designs and showcase their talent.

Thanks to our web host, cerebrum. I originally chose them for their wide support of various technologies (postgresql, rails, etc.), and they have really helped us out.
