We were truly inspired when we heard Matt Marek’s story behind developing Matt won 2nd place in the “Best Designed” category of the .xyz Web Design Contest with a site that he created for his friend – who’s also a budding actress and model – Andrea Ma Gee.

Matt shared with us that he “wanted to create a site that was as professional and unique as she was, and .xyz was a fun and unique way to make the domain stand out.”

Another drawing point to .xyz? The ring that .xyz has with her name. If you say it out loud, you won’t miss that catchy rhyme you hear with How clever is that!

“I really hope that one day the .xyz website I designed lands Andrea a chance at a big role that will push her acting career to stardom. It would be awesome to know I played a part in helping someone achieve their dreams.”
