Big Pixel is a strategic design and development firm that is proudly based in Raleigh, NC. We are a unique mix of ninjas, rock stars, and nerds that exist solely to craft amazing mobile and web-based applications that change the world and the businesses that run it.
Design is more than making something beautiful. It is the process of deeply understanding our client’s needs and creating a high standard that we use as a benchmark in all of our work.
In most development firms, design is a step in the process. Mockups and wireframes are made, approved, and then handed off to the developers to reference while coding. We have found that this process often ends with an application that flows very differently than the designers intended. Left to their own devices even the best developers will get about 80% of the way there.
The last 20% is always the hardest so we created a different approach.
Design-infused development is the process we use that keeps design and the client’s vision front and center throughout the project. Before each deliverable is made, the designers run through and “nitpick” each page and function to make sure that the intended design and user experience is kept throughout.
While this is much harder on our development teams, the end result is always worth the effort.
Transparency: We are always constructively honest and transparent with both clients and colleagues.
- We deliver regularly to our clients to show them our work.
- We discuss issues with projects early, accompanied by solutions.
Open Communication: Whether internal, or external, we are open to ideas and innovation. We communicate with each other and clients respectfully and honestly.
Internal: Technology is our passion and it shows through in each and every project. Our love for design, development, and taking care of our clients should be obvious to everyone who encounters Big Pixel.
External: We will strive to make our client’s passion our own. We do this by digging deep, asking questions, and learning what makes each project unique and compelling.
We value quality and craftsmanship above profit. Software development can be very messy. If something “goes sideways” we will correct it and deliver to our high standards.
Don’t Be Afraid to Push
Pushing Back: Our value to our clients stems from our desire to create the best version of their vision. We do this by pushing back on ideas, shaping them, and designing something better together.
Pushing Forward: We do not stop learning. We push innovation and try new things and, most importantly, show our clients what technology can do for them.
Big Pixel strives to go beyond building apps and websites. Rather we aim to improve the whole organization. Whether working with startups or larger entities, we always search to find ways to help them grow and thrive.
We specialize in three areas:
- Helping businesses improve their processes through holistically-designed technology.
- Building startups from the ground up. Usually this starts by saying “No” a lot.
- Helping marketing and design firms create amazing products for their clients.
