What’s in a name?
People have regularly asked us where our name comes from, and we felt it prudent to put a little information up about this.
- Pixels are something that we work with day in, day out. Your computer screen is possibly made up of over a million pixels and being that every pixel counts, we wanted to reference this in our name.
- Well, everyone loves our primate cousins. It’s our origin (unless you don’t go in for the evolution thing).
- A play on a graphic design term. When an image is resized over and over again it becomes pixelated. This is generally regarded as a bad thing, unless you love funky retro pixel designs!
