About us

Our Story

Simply Inspired Design Co. was founded in a spare bedroom in our home!

We are Eric and April Austin, a husband and wife team who just decided to go for it and follow our dreams of running our very own business.

We believed and still believe that God has big things for all of us who will embrace it! 

 After many late nights of brainstorming sign ideas and testing colors and styles, we finally launched our handmade sign business in January of 2017. We had no idea what we were doing but this was a dream of mine that my husband was totally on board with and we believed that God would provide everything we needed. We just went for it and he has been so faithful to us. About a year later we had so much work that I could no longer do it by myself. Eric then left his full time job after 20 years and came along side me, working full time at home!

We have been married going on 27 yrs and have 2 beautiful daughters.

 Prior to launching, I worked as an account rep in an Oncology office and Eric was working at a Furniture Factory as an upholsterer and also doing graphic design on the side.

 After we launched, our business quickly began to gain attention and grow in popularity on social media. It has not been without growing pains and challenges but we can honestly say that we're so grateful for the journey and also very blessed to have such amazing customers that continue to support us! 


 We believe that we all have talents, and abilities that God has written within us and that he desires to influence the world through us when we say yes to his plans!


 We just want to fulfill the lives and the purpose that we have been given with excellence and integrity and glorify God while we do it! If we can inspire others to believe in themselves and the plan God has for them we feel like that is total success!
