Pixeldust worked with McGarrah Jessee an Austin based advertising agency, to develop a series of interactive banner advertisements for the Whataburger. In the midst of a new product launch, Whataburger wanted to make sure their new campaign was both eye catching and reinfored their brand while conveying their menu’s new direction.
Pixeldust worked with The nFusion Group to create an animated hero piece for their client Toshiba. Pixeldust employed Flash technology and a little imagination to bring the piece to life. Pixeldust has also built numerous rich media based banner ads for Toshiba’s many interactive campaigns.
Pixeldust Interactive was listed in the Austin Business Journal’s annual list of top Drupal Web Design firms in Austin for the third year in a row. This year Pixeldust moved up from number 18 to number 12. The list is determined by a number of factors including gross revenue, clients and number of local employees.
Pixeldust implemented a thorough redesign to revitalize the existing SureScore website. Pixeldust designed and developed a fresh user interface, updated all graphics, incorporated video and Flash, and installed a WordPress Content Management System to provide an educational, interactive experience.
Broken Records, a Spicewood, TX, record label and recording studio, has selected Pixeldust as its lead digital agency for all Drupal web development needs. Pixeldust will design and develop the brand identity and website for both the record label and recording studio. The website will feature Broken Records artists and showcase the state-of-the-art recording studio currently under production. Pixeldust will also develop a highly interactive 3d animation to help introduce the brand.

Wall Street Journal design director Matthew Ström on something near and dear to me: the link between code and design tools: We’re in the middle of a design tool renaissance. In the 8 years since Sketch 1.0 was released, there’s been a wave of competition among traditional design tools. And as the number of tools available to designers grows exponentially, ideas that were once considered fringe are finding a broader audience. One of these ideas will significantly change the way digital products are designed: integrating design and code at a deep level. Figma can update a React code base in real time; InVision, Abstract, and Zeplin have done away with design-developer handoff documents; Framer’s new Framer X can render interactive React components directly into its workspace. These examples are just a hint of what’s to come. Matthew then looks at how this combination of code and design has been improving…

Viget’s dedication to exploration and innovation has led to the existence of our hardware lab and several awesome hardware projects over the past few years. Hardware’s exciting, with new technologies and possibilities emerging every day. For those of us at Viget who are not on the hardware team though, it means we’re never quite sure what’s feasible in the realm of hardware. But as our hardware projects have become more sophisticated and in-depth, the hardware team (i.e. Justin and sometimes Eli) can’t do it all alone anymore! So how does hardware collaborate with another team, like the design team? Justin and I had to solve that very problem recently on an ever evolving sales lead. Adult Swim reached out to us, interested in creating something for their physical space at San Diego Comic-Con that would be fun, interactive, and engage their fans. It was a perfect opportunity for our imaginations…

This is a follow up to my previous post looking into clip paths. Last time around, we dug into the fundamentals of clipping and how to get started. We looked at some ideas to exemplify what we can do with clipping. We’re going to take things a step further in this post and look at different examples, discuss alternative techniques, and consider how to approach our work to be cross-browser compatible. One of the biggest drawbacks of CSS clipping, at the time of writing, is browser support. Not having 100% browser coverage means different experiences for viewers in different browsers. We, as developers, can’t control what browsers support — browser vendors are the ones who implement the spec and different vendors will have different agendas. One thing we can do to overcome inconsistencies is use alternative technologies. The feature set of CSS and SVG sometimes overlap. What works in one…

In a recent post, Zach Saucier demonstrated the awesome things that the DOM allows us to do, thanks to the <canvas> element. Taking a snapshot of an element and manipulating it to create an exploding animation is pretty slick and a perfect example of how far complex animations have come in the last few years. ABeamer is a new animation ecosystem that takes advantage of these new concepts. At the core of the ecosystem is the web browser animation library. But, it’s not just another animation engine. ABeamer is designed to build frame-by-frame animations in the web browser and use a render server to generate a PNG file sequence, which can ultimately be used to create an animated GIF or imported into a video editor. First, a little about what ABeamer can do A key feature is its ability to hook into remote sources. This allows us to build an…
