Our Team

Hey there!

Pixel Labs is a team of ambitiously creative humans who are always looking for better ways to build marketing strategies, create content, and convey the messages of the brands we work with. Our teams talents stretch from video production and graphic design to marketing and branding strategies. With a divers background in media, we’ve been built to provide a unique perspective and vision to achieve your brand’s marketing goals.

We exist because we believe your business deserves a more agile & dynamic marketing team.

For too long, businesses, especially small to mid-sized businesses, have been stuck with outdated marketing strategies. At Pixel Labs, our mission is to change that. We want to break away from cookie cutter strategies and build marketing plans as unique as the brands themselves.

Building an agency on the foundation of creative means we understand what it means to connect visually with an audience. Marketing is often considered a transactional process, but we know that when you can connect with audiences on a human level, all of your marketing efforts will improve, and there is no better way to do that than with authentic and meaningful creative.

It’s more vital now than ever before that we continue to adapt to the ever-changing marketing climate. Algorithms create moving targets for marketing teams, platforms introduce new features and changes, audiences attentions move from one place to another. It can feel impossible to keep up with it all, but this challenge is exactly what our team is built for.

Meet the team.
