Gattis Pizza

Pixeldust put a lot of digital mojo into gattisjingle.com. Utilizing a musician’s flyer feel, we designed and developed a clean microsite that would ultimately serve as a bridge for the 40th anniversary, remind Austinites that Gatti’s started in Austin, and generate excitement and interest among new and existing customers. And they wanted to conquer social media. With over 140+ stores throughout Texas, the South and Midwest, it’s not a stretch to assume Gatti’s pizza is a strong contender in the pizza industry. The Gatti’s chain of restaurants reflects a fun family atmosphere that fills you up and entertains you at the same time. But Gatti’s long-time advertising jingle no longer captivated customers. And on the eve of their 40th anniversary, Gatti’s decided to hold a jingle competition with a $10,000 grand prize and let their fans speak for the company. All the Toppings Pixeldust built a website that allows users and…

Pioneer Surgical

In an industry worth more than $14 billion and still growing, it’s safe to say that the orthopedic surgical instrument and implant industry isn’t slowing down any time soon. In fact, it’s projected to gross nearly $22 billion in 2012, almost doubling in revenue in just one year. And for nearly 20 years, Pioneer Surgical has grown alongside it. Founded in 1992 in the garage of a local surgeon, Pioneer has since expanded into more than 300 employees worldwide. Their strong commitment to innovation has resulted in over 130 U.S. and foreign patents and kept them at the forefront of spinal and orthopedic surgical solutions. But with all of their growth and innovative breakthroughs, Pioneer did not have a way to distribute important product information to customers online. Count back from 100 Pioneer wanted a distributor website that would correlate with their existing website and provide important surgical equipment information…

My Fit Foods

Challenge With more than one third of adults overweight in the US, it’s easy to see why the weight loss industry is booming. And while many diet food companies claim to offer healthy food that tastes great, most customers are usually left feeling unsatisfied, disconnected and reaching the end of a Doritos bag. But My Fit Foods has taken a different approach. Founded in the apartment kitchen of personal trainer Mario Mendez in 2006, My Fit Foods offers healthy pre-packaged meals for customers who lead busy lifestyles in over 70 stores throughout Texas, Arizona and California. When they approached us, myfitfoods.com did not reflect the company’s earthy, easy-going nature or provide the high-level functionality needed to engage users and showcase their superior menu. And while MFF had mastered tasty food and community spirit, they lacked the interactive usability for customers to create meal plans and purchase meals online. My Fit…

Abrams Learning Trends

Challenge Abrams wanted to redefine their product organization in such a way where product updates were streamlined, and product relationships were dynamically displayed within the site. Solution With hundreds of products sold both individually and in bundles, and related to one another through various, often hierarchical categorizations, making sense of the Abrams product catalog was a major piece of this project.Both the client and Pixeldust worked closely together to build a sustainable product structure that met both the client’s organizational and update wishes, and fit neatly into Drupal’s capabilities. We broke down our problem-solving approach into: 1) Organization, 2) Product Updates, and 3) Product Relationship Display. 1) Organization We pinpointed the product relationships that mattered to the client as: categorization through normal taxonomy tags. categorization through hierarchical taxonomy tags, where one item may belong to several tags within the same hierarchical taxonomy. parent – child relationships: whether or not the…

Broken Records

Broken Records will be the largest LEED certified recording studio in Texas. Pixeldust worked with Broken Records to design a Drupal Based website and logo that conveys the studio’s technical stature while still capturing the Austin vibe. Pixeldust built a Drupal based website that features a black record background and a 3d animated video on the home page. Broken Records is a full-service audio, video and film production facility located in South Austin. With over 36,000 square feet of space, they provide private and live music venues, movie sets, a full-service audio mastering studio, soundstage and 1,700 square foot film editing suite as a production alternative to Los Angeles.
