One of the first question we get asked is about our name. Minpin Technologies got the name from our pets. We own three Minature Pinchers, called Minpin's for short. When we started the company, we had no children and our pets were like family. As many who own pets can atest to. Minature Pinchers are wonderful animals full (very full) of life. Minpin Technologies believes in family, relationships and living life to the fullest. So we took the name Minpin. And besides, the domain was available, short and easy to remember.
Minpin Technologies was founded by Rob Daniels in 1997. Originally founded under the name Minpin Graphics, we have provided support and training to individuals and companies of all sizes. Rob started in the world of photography. This immediately led to Adobe Photoshop and the Mac. Since then Rob has been network manager of a publishing company and supported many other clients. The first several years after the comapny was formed, Rob traveled the country providing training, seminars, speaking at conference on computer graphics. More recently Rob has focused regionally on his home market in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Lisa, Rob's wife, assists in schduling, calls and production work.
In 1998 Minpin Technologies added the Digital Training Institute name for it's training endeavors. Digital Training Institute has been, and remains, Kansas City's Premier Adobe Solutions Network Partner for training. Becoming, at the time, the regions only Adobe Certified Training Provider.
