Our very first blog post!
It’s definitely long overdue and we are super excited to start our blogging journey with you all. Keeping you up to date with all the marvellous happenings at Urban Pxl. We would love to share our trials and triumphs, knowledge and expertise, a few design hacks and even have a few laughs together.
Off the bat, let’s do a quick little intro. Urban Pxl was founded on the 1st February 2015 by Ryan Wallis, known to us as our Creative director. He is literally the guy that makes all the magic happen. Ryan has put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into starting up Urban Pxl and all of his hard work, along with his sister companies and colleagues at Spitfire Inbound and Penquin, is paying off in wonderful ways.
Along this journey, Urban Pxl has had the absolute pleasure of meeting some really amazing people and gaining the most incredible clients. Some local legends such as Sure Swipe, Suzuki Auto SA, Interwaste, Amasondo, BMW and Eqstra to name a few. We also have some fun, and a little crazy, overseas clients like My Darling Magazine, (the crazy ones :P) and Inbound Fintech in the UK. We also have, Grow Up Green Walls in the US, which is a super innovative initiative.
We have contributed our creative knowledge and design, and are honoured to be a part of winning really cool global awards for our sister agencies and clients… sooo chuffed about that! We have the biggest smiles all around as you can imagine. These awards included the Hubspot Growth Driven Design Awards and The Hubspot Impact Awards, just to name a few.
We are constantly up skilling when it comes to designing and building websites and using CMS platforms such as Hubspot and WordPress to always make sure we are ahead of the game. We continuously research and keep up to date with what’s going on in the world to ensure that our process of digital transformation can assist each unique company or brand in getting the right exposure and reach via the web. We have recently been rated on the Clutch list of the top-performing B2B companies in Africa. Clutch’s selection methodology weighs companies based on their market presence and verified reviews. We are so stoked to have made it onto this list and we are as inspired as ever!
In closing, we want to say a big thank you to our colleagues and clients for their continued support. To the CMS platforms that make our creativity come to life, and to our team, baie dankie!
