Pixel Pixel Summer Business Update
The last quarter saw significant changes in the UK. With restrictions easing and the economy ramping up, for us – like many businesses – this meant planning and reacting to these changes while continuing to deliver across increasing workloads.
Affinity Artist Spotlight
We love summer! Long days, trips to the beach, and weekend BBQs. And, although we may be limited on overseas holidays this year, our resident Graphic Designer, David Wildish, has created our very own summer oasis for this update’s artwork.
We were proud to see David featured as the Affinity Designer Spotlight Artist this month. The article makes a really interesting read, giving an insight into David’s background and process. It’s also packed full of fantastic artwork by David.

Our new marketing apprentice
One of the biggest changes over the past few months has been the addition of James Graham to the team. James joined us in June as our new Digital Marketing Apprentice and is keen to build on his previous digital marketing exposure.
Since leaving school, James has worked in retail and administration, where he developed a taste for digital marketing, having helped previous employers run social media campaigns.
As an apprentice, James gets the valuable academic support that an apprenticeship brings, coupled with practical on-the-job exposure while helping us run digital marketing campaigns at Pixel Pixel. He is also looking forward to putting his love of video production into action – we hope you will see more of James across our social media channels very soon!
A partial return to the office
Over the past month, our team has been taking up the option to work from the office a couple of times a week. It’s been such a pleasure to see them all face-to-face (mask-to-mask?) again for the first time since last summer! We’ve even had some unexpected office guests in the form of two baby seagulls!
For many of the team, this is the first time visiting the office since our recent refurb. To ensure we can safely work and enjoy our larger office space, we are closely following government guidelines and advice.
