This is Ben Moore (CEO) and Luke Seeley (Creative Director) from Pixel Union.
We’re part of a team of 40 designers, developers, support staff, and creatives based in Canada, the US, Europe, and Australia. We make awesome themes for platforms like Shopify, WordPress and Tumblr, as well as build apps and custom products for a bunch of great clients under our consulting division. Today we’re coming at you LIVE from our HQ in beautiful Victoria, BC.
A little primer: Pixel Union was founded by the fine folks at Metalab (fun fact: Ben and Luke are both ex-Metalab…ers? ites?) We released our first Tumblr theme, Fluid, in 2009, and from that point on Pixel Union played a big role in Tumblr’s growth. Millions of people and organizations have used our Tumblr themes, including The White House, MoMA, McDonald’s, the LA Lakers, Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, and Snoop Dogg.
Over the years, we moved into WordPress and then Ghost, but our main focus these days is ecommerce. When we’re not launching our our own themes for Shopify or elsewhere, we do a ton of consulting work—usually custom ecommerce solutions for enterprise clients or bigger, long-term projects with some of our partners. We’re no longer a part of Metalab these days, but we still think of them as part of the family :-)
You can get more of a sense for who we are and what we’re about on our website. Happy to discuss anything you like, so don't be shy!
