Indiv could work, though not a real word, it does bring individuality to mind, plus it would be easier to find a domain :)

No, most people wouldn’t see that as independent when reading. The first thing I thought was “In-depth”

Exactly the same here, when I read that for the first time my brain processed that as ‘in depth’ rather than independent.

You can! Here’s a few examples:

“badjohnny is an indie web designer”—> Makes sense.

“I’m an indie designer”—> Makes sense.

“This is an indie website”—> Does not make sense, as websites aren’t really “independent” of anything. I would use it to describe you, but not your designs. Does that make sense? :)

Or you could try to use ‘Individualistic’. You can shorten it down to ‘Indiv.’

An indiv-designer.

Indiv? Never heard of it! I would just look at it and think “what is that supposed to mean? Indivisible? Individualist? Individuated?”

Indie is fine for more than music. The Independent newspaper is also referred to as The Indie sometimes. An indie website is no problem, although there is a little danger that it might be perceived as an indie-music website.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t think of Individuated :)

In the end though, you should aim for the majority of your users, and they will know the meaning of Indie

Of course ‘Indie’ is ok. In as much as ‘Indiv’ is not a proper word but can easily be identified as something individual (individualistic). There are a good number of themes that are using improper words. I merely suggested indiv as an abbreviation of ‘individualistic’. Indie on the other hand is a proper word but commonly used. It all comes down to what Badjohnny sees fit for his theme.

He can use the title:

  • An indiv-designer

And full description as:

  • An individualistic designer or Badjohnny is an individualistic designer.

I’d see indiv. as individual. So if it was ‘individual designer’ I’d think ‘freelancer’. Then I’d express mild anger at being taken around the houses having to work out what an indiv. designer was, so I’d probably go elsewhere.
