Catalyst Design

Catalyst Design’s roots trace back to the mid 2000’s when founders Matt Stillwell and Rene Zain merged their real estate marketing designing talents and formed a new venture. Since Matt’s departure in 2007, co-founder Rene Zain has forged ahead expanding the clientele base beyond the real estate market and providing a more web centric service approach. Today the company specializes in website design with a special concentration in WordPress content managed platform, mobile optimized sites and social networking design.
