It Began in 2005
Ross Johnson founded 3.7 DESIGNS in 2005 while providing IT support for local Ann Arbor companies. While IT was “paying the bills” Johnson got tired of the daily “my computer no work, please fix! ok-thx-bye” phone calls. Having designed and built websites as part of his IT services for nine years, it was a natural “pivot” (+10 points for using start-up buzzword.)
With a background in technology, fine arts and social science Johnson found himself in a unique position to offer standards compliment, usable, accessible and emotionally engaging websites. This proved to be a valuable differentiator and business took off. Now here we are, nine years later.
