Hey folks! Carrd is a project I've been building off and on since last summer. It's my first "major" solo project since HTML5 UP / Pixelarity, and definitely the most complex thing I've ever attempted to build on my own (more on that another time), so I'm super excited to finally share it with the world (well, the world outside my Twitter following at least :)

The concept behind Carrd is pretty straightforward: it's a free service for building and hosting simple, responsive, one-page sites for ... basically whatever, be it a personal "business card" style site or a "coming soon" page with a Mailchimp signup form to capture emails. It's fast, super simple to use, and 100% free, though bonus features (like forms and custom domain support) are available with the (entirely optional) $19/year Pro plan. A few quick examples I whipped up:

http://markanderson.carrd.co/
http://anotherjane.carrd.co/

And a couple using forms if you're into that sort of thing:

http://signup-form-demo.carrd.co/

Now I know there are *tons* of other products in this space already (including some really great ones featured right here on Product Hunt), but having been in its orbit for some time I think that's simply a function of how big the space is (which totally makes sense; everyone's needs are a little different). So, my goal with Carrd was to create a product that really focused on simplicity and ease of use while still being capable of building attractive/functional sites. Based on early feedback I think I've come pretty close to that goal, but as I'm sure there's plenty of room for improvement (as indicated by its "kinda-sorta-beta" state) please let me know what you think :)

I love the fact that you don't even have to register/login to start playing around!

So basically it feels like an advanced alternative to about.me. I do love the simplicity, design and overall UX. Everything is precisely clear and simple. I do believe there is still much room for improvement. Great job, keepit up!

Very cool project AJ. Are e-mail sign-ups and tracking (+some basic analytics) in the works? If you offer a service like that for free I would use this over something like LaunchRock in a heartbeat because of how it beautiful and easy to set-up everything is.

Awesome job @n33co! Whilst some say it could be a crowded marketplace for services like Carrd, you've definitely made it stand out by making it clean & simple 👌
