Website Details

MINIMALISMI is a web magazine dedicated to minimalist industrial and interior design, architecture, concepts and technology. Founded in 2009 in Milan, Italy with a clear goal of bringing the fresh and the exclusive from Italy and around the world to its international visitors, Minimalismi offers companies, freelancers and students equal opportunities to reach their audience, no matter who or where they are.

  • has been online for only eight months, since late April 2009 (Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2009 in Milan, Italy) and is already considered by many to be one of the top 10 architecture & design blogs on the Web!
  • Minimalismi is the ONLY architecture & design website focused exclusively on minimalism in its most recognizable forms: minimalist architecture, and minimalist interior and industrial design.
  • Minimalismi is plural for minimalism in Italian and many more widely spoken languages throughout the world. Therefore, you'll be getting a short, meaningful, and, most of all, easy to remember domain name.

What you would be getting:

  • 8 months worth of highest quality content (please try to understand that the real value of this kind of website lies in the content and the visitors' trust)
  • Expensive domain name:
  • Professionally designed website and all its contents.
  • 445 days worth of hosting (as of January 14; UNLIMITED disk space and bandwidth!!!).

- Architecture & Design News Portal/Blog
- Architecture & Design Job Board (NEW!!!)

Moreover, anything posted on the website (news articles or job adverts) gets automatically forwarded to:

  • 315 Facebook fans (as of September 14; NEW!!!)
  • 500 RSS readers + Newsletter subscribers (as of September 14; NEW!!!)
  • 3250 Twitter followers! (as of September 14)

We'll also give you:

  • We'll continue to run the website for another 5 days after the purchase date (weekends included; this should give you more than enough time for any necessary "takeover" preparations on your side)
  • + FULL support from our tech team during the takeover period.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Although we're currently not accepting any advertising deals (due to this auction), we do have a number of active ones on the website at the moment. By purchasing the website you agree not to remove any of the banners (Google Adsense code will be removed immediately after purchase) until February 20 (you're free to renegotiate these deals with our existing partners after the expiration date). Moreover, we keep the right to cancel any running deals during the takeover period (5 days).

Quick answers to some questions you may ask:
Why are you selling?
We'll be focusing on (the development of) another (much larger) project this winter. The original plan was to merge it with Minimalismi as it will also be architecture & design related. However, we lack the manpower to handle both websites at the moment.

How many people does it take to write the content?
A single editor could handle the job just easily.

Could you give a basic breakup of the revenue?
90+% direct ads. This ratio should change if you focus on promoting the job board.

For more info, please, don't hesitate to contact us.
