What We Do
We’re a web and logo design studio with a flair for minimal design.
We work with passionate creatives, bloggers, and small businesses who are daring enough to go after their dreams.
We want to help you create your dream website. You have a vision and we have the tools to make it happen. With Carrie’s eye for design and symmetry and Kyle’s creativity and love of coding, we offer the whole design package. We will work with you one-on-one to craft a unique website that showcases your vision and your brand.
Who We Are
Hi! We’re Carrie and Kyle Goodman, a creative, location independent couple from Texas. We split our time between Houston, Texas, and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
We’re currently in Florida, converting a school bus into our tiny house/mobile design studio this summer, and then we’ll take our 4-year-old Malt-Tzu pup, Piper, and travel across the United States full-time (you can follow along with us by going to our travel/bus blog at Unlimited Miles or by following us on Instagram).
We met while working at a major bookstore, and it was love at first sight. We’re both beach lovers, minimalists, Doctor Who fans (Whovians), avid readers, Dallas Cowboys fans, and wine connoisseurs.

I’m Kyle, web developer, logo designer, writer, and owner at Salt Inspired Design. I started coding in high school, then later took the Skillcrush Web Developer Blueprint course, along with teaching myself WordPress. I use my love of coding to put those custom touches on the websites we create. I also love to draw, and I’m always coming up with new logo concepts, as well as writing most of our blog posts.
I’m from a small coastal Texas town, so the ocean is in my blood. I used to work at a coffee shop and I make an awesome caramel macchiato, but my favorite drink is an iced triple shot espresso. My favorite book is “The House of Leaves”, which is a challenging but worthwhile read (my next tattoo is even inspired by it). I want to inspire others to seek more out of life and to stray from the mundane.
Hey! I’m Carrie, web designer, creative director, client manager, and owner at Salt Inspired Design. After years in retail merchandising and management, I got started in web design when I took the Skillcrush Web Designer Blueprint course; then I took it once step further by learning WordPress. I’ve always had an eye for design (including customizing my MySpace page back in the day). Now I love to help other creative entrepreneurs and businesses get their dream website.
I’m a native Texan who’s obsessed with the ocean. I’m an introverted, vegan, minimalist who enjoys coffee every morning, a good book (my favorite series is “The Chronicles of Narnia”, which I’ve read several times), and wine by the beach. I’m passionate about the environment, simple living, travel, and helping other creatives live their dream life.
If you asked us a few years ago what our dreams were, we would have vaguely said financial security and living by the beach. After working to live and living to work, we decided it was time for a change.
We’re passionate about helping people. We love the idea of “extravagant generosity”, where we figure out how much we actually need and give away the rest.
We’re not here to makes millions of dollars. We want to see the world and help others along the away, whether it’s through supporting an ocean conservation organization or spending time with someone who is in need of a good meal.
Eventually, we’ll highlight different causes, where we can support them (and encourage others to also), and donate a portion of our profits.
Why Salt Inspired Design?
The ocean soothes and inspires us while salt maintains us. Did you know that without salt, our muscles and nervous system cease to function? It’s crazy to think that something we give little thought to could essentially determine our success or failure. Like salt, is your web presence contributing to your overall success? In the billions of web searches every day, are your customers and clients reaching you?
