Built to do great things.
Big Pixel provides a wide variety of services to make sure that we can meet our clients at their point of need. By being a “one stop shop” we are able to tackle most problems from a variety of angles.
In summary, we are awesome.
Business Technology Solutions
All companies have software that is critical to their business. Often this software is out of date, cumbersome, and inefficient. We fix all that.
We take the time to learn the processes from all the major stakeholders and then come up with suggestions that streamline and improve it in a holistic way. This often includes:
- Workflow system that gives everyone from sales, management, and the people out in the field a dynamic snapshot of their day and what to do next.
- The “spaghetti monster”. This is a multi-pronged system that brings together disparate systems into a single cohesive application that breaks the common “data silo” problem.
- Paperless applications. For those out in the field selling or working, paper and PDF forms are a necessary evil. This requires the office manager to reenter data into the system (often multiple times). A truly paperless system removes that and makes office managers really happy.
Startups are the future and their passion is contagious. We love working with them as much as we can and we have developed processes that push them to create something great.
We often joke that our job with startups is to “kill their dreams, and then make them happen.” We do this with lots of tough love and even more questions. You see, our goal is not to build a startup’s app, it is to build their company (and their app). We want to partner with them and help them create something that can sustain itself.
We are very particular with the startups we work with because we want to make sure that they are ready to work with a professional firm. If they are not, then we give them homework to validate and prove out their idea and then come back to us.
Think you are ready? We would love to hear about it.
UX (User Experience)
Each app or website we design is unique like a pretty, pretty snowflake, but the principles behind the mouth-watering visuals are always the same…
User Experience (or UX) is about two simple things: Making it simple and making it work. We call it “user-first design”. With each website or app we build we focus on the user and making sure that with each tap, their experience is nothing less than amazing.
Our specialty is making complex interfaces easy to use and so pretty they should be on the runway. Whether you have an existing design that needs a new look and flow or we need to create something from scratch, our team is ready to go.
Mobile and Web Development
Once the strategy is set, the design is approved, the specs are laid out, and the user flow is flowing it is time to get it done.
Welcome to our wheelhouse. Mobile apps, responsive websites, ecommerce, and heavy-duty, full blown applications is what we build and deliver every single day.
Because we work with such a wide variety of clients we have adapted to a large array of development technologies. Each year we look at the market and choose a new platform to adopt and learn. This keeps us sharp and ready for what’s next.
Whether you need a completely new application or just an update to an existing one we have the skills and the know-how to help.
There are hundreds of amazing marketing and design firms out there, but many of them do not have access to developers who have the skill to bring their designs to life and so they have to simplify their designs and can’t show off their real talent.
We partner with firms like this all the time and have built sites for large colleges, businesses, and other organizations. The firms bring us the design and we create an amazing responsive website or mobile app to complement it.
Through these partnerships we have become experts at different CMS systems such as WordPress and Drupal.

Servers and Hosting
APIs, websites, web hooks, and services… no matter what we are building, it needs a place to live. Big Pixel uses a wide array of servers and cloud services to host the myriad of applications we have built over the years. We can host, maintain, and scale any application we have built or are supporting.
Have your own servers and IT team? No worries. We play well with others and can deploy to almost any environment.
