We like what we do, and who we do it with



Forgettable ads, sleepy afternoon meetings and stale business partnerships. Sorry, but no. We enjoy what we do too much to make this miserable.

We got tired of working for the big boys and being dragged under by overhead and oversight from people who, quite frankly smelled bad. We did what anyone who loves what they do would do — we started our own agency. And then we took a shower. Not together.

Spicy Pixel is made from a collection of all the best people we've worked with over the years. Great at what they do, and even better at keeping their skin soft.

When it comes to the work: the more we can make the process seem less like a process, the more everyone will enjoy the results.
