About Pixel Parlor

Pixel Parlor’s mission is to provide unique, sophisticated design solutions while maintaining the utmost attention to detail. The studio strives to provide exemplary customer service and build strong, lasting relationships with their clients, and believe that a process of close collaboration with the organizations and businesses they work with is essential to successful projects. For Pixel Parlor, design is the most successful when there is key stakeholder involvement, transparent discussion, and a common vision. Pixel Parlor takes time to select the best materials and methods to assure that the final design solution is sustainable, elegant, efficient, and affordable.

It is important to not forget that fun can be the secret ingredient for exciting and evocative design and for nurturing positive, long-standing relationships. Pixel Parlor pulls inspiration from outside of their studio walls, and brings new ideas back to incorporate into daily work. While working hard, the team makes sure to take the time to smell the roses, plant tomatoes, cook, bike, paint, photograph, draw, and experience.

The studio believes that making the world a little better is achievable through seeking collaborative efforts with those who also value environmentally, culturally, and socially sustainable practices. The majority of the team walks, bikes, or takes public transportation to work each day. Additionally, Pixel Parlor gives back to local charitable & civic organizations, while also supporting and collaborating with woman & minority-owned businesses and alternative business practices that support underrepresented populations.

Becoming a B Corp felt like the right thing to do. Already having existing relationships with a number of really amazing progressive, culturally and socially responsible clients, this was our way of committing to focus on fostering similar relationships as a business standard and guiding force for our future work.

The Change We Seek®

Pixel Parlor seeks to provide thoughtful solutions to their clients so that the messages, materials, production methods and quantities of products created are made to last, are environmentally sound, provoke change, and advance culture.

Pixel Parlor believes that providing a positive, ethical work environment, and positive ethical design products is fundamental to creating a successful business and enduring client relationships. By collaborating with clients who seek a better world, and a better solutions, we are able to push the boundaries of what our small team can accomplish. We seek impactful, strategic solutions that make our world a better place.

What makes us a better company?
