“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Pixel Parlor for newly three years now. As a marketing manager in film distribution, we have a variety of design needs and tight deadlines. The Pixel team never disappoints. We’re always able to meet our deadlines thanks to their quick work. And there’s no compromise in quality here. Everything they create for us, from digital artwork to newsletters, is top notch and looks incredible. They’re truly a wonderful team to work with and I can’t recommend them enough!”
Marketing Manager, IFC Films
“Pixel Parlor is a vital resource for us, and we highly value their skill in both communication and project execution. We know that our clients’ ideas and our creative project development are in excellent hands when partnering with them. They’re an all-star team and we’re always grateful for opportunities to work with them.”
Producer, Five Five Collective
“Love working with PXP, they’ve been a great partner for over 2 years and have worked with us on small project pieces to larger more complex ones. They have great visual aesthetic, passionate about creating better communities, and are very customer orientated (even when customers like ourselves need help in the 12th hour!). Would highly recommend.”
Director of Strategic Communication & Marketing, KenCrest
“Pixel Parlor was great to work with. They listened to our needs and helped come up with a solution that worked for both of us on a website redesign. The team was super communicative and friendly throughout the process, and helped keep our team on track with deliverables and deadlines. Our new website is much more user-friendly and will be something we can continue to update more frequently as our programs, products, and initiatives change! It’s clear they put a lot of work and care into their projects.”
Tiffany Hudson, Branding and Communications Manager
“We have worked with Pixel Parlor on numerous projects including our Summer Camp and new Early Childhood Center. From start to finish the Team exceeded our expectations in terms of brand design, website development and overall finished project. We love that we are able to turn to Pixel for assistance at any time, with any requests – whether it be website updates, collateral materials or general questions/help. We highly recommend Pixel Parlor!”

“Thank you!!!! I want to reiterate to your whole team how great it has been to work with you and we hope to keep working with you in the future. We are super happy with all of the work and you are so responsive and organized!”
Executive Director, Whitesbog Preservation Trust
“Pixel Parlor is an incredibly insightful, communicative, and respectful creative partner! We have worked with Pixel on two major web design projects, and each time they exceeded our expectations while sticking to our nonprofit budget.”
Associate Director of Operations, BalletX
“It’s been a delight to work with Pixel Parlor to solve our organization’s significant branding conundrum. Prior to engaging the studio, we had a confusing organization name, a successful promotional initiative, and several different sub-brands that all had different logos, typefaces, and color palettes. PXP helped us streamline the whole lot with a suite of logos that referenced the parent organization (with its new name), a handsome and defined set of typefaces, and an easy-to-use style guide with color palettes for all seasons. We’ve enjoyed working with them so much that we’ve enlisted them for projects outside our original scope of work and will continue to do so.”

“I cannot in any way begin to thank you enough for everything you have done for me. It’s such an understatement to say that whatever success Lil Mixins has or will have would not have been possible without you pushing me to follow this silly idea and guiding and helping me at every step. You have my eternal gratitude.”
Owner, Lil Mixins
“If you are looking for kick butt designers who also bring strategy, thought partnership, heaps of creativity, laughter, and empathy, then Pixel Parlor is your choice. Working with the folks at Pixel Parlor for 7 years, I got to know their team not only as trusted partners, but friends. I could always count on them to push our projects to be better, look better, and be more useful to the end user. From large-scale reports, to sub-brands, and PowerPoint decks, I’ve done it all with Pixel Parlor. As a B-Corp, they are also committed to social justice and equity, which is important when choosing who to work with. Any project we had, no matter big or small, I knew I could count on Pixel Parlor to create a high quality and functional product. I look forward to working with them for years to come.”
(Former) Director of Communications, The END Fund
“I started working with Pixel Parlor while at IFC Films and was immediately impressed with the creativity and quality of their designs. When I was looking for an agency to bring some ideas behind the Philadelphia Film Festival to life, Pixel Parlor was my first stop. Their designers and PMs know the industry, the content, and consistently deliver engaging work on time and on budget. They are always responsive and extremely professional, whether they are crafting a larger digital plan or just a few social cards. Plus, they are really fun folks to work with!”
Marketing Director, Philadelphia Film Society
“Pixel Parlor crew! We want to say thank you to everyone for working so hard to make this happen! We are so grateful and look forward to the next stage of putting together menus and branding/marketing items. Your hard work truly shows through and we are ecstatic about the results of the website. We couldn’t be happier! IT. LOOKS. AWESOME!!!”
“Pixel Parlor turned our diverse service lines and a long list of administrative needs into a friendly, cohesive site that immediately began helping us serve more clients. They put up with our numerous delays, staff turnover and changes of scope. The final product, at www.nkcdc.org, allowed NKCDC to retire five outdated sites and bring their content together at one location that looks and sounds like us. As a community nonprofit dependent on government and foundation support, NKCDC is always looking for ways to improve its efficiency with limited funds. All signs show that investing in Pixel Parlor was one of the best financial decisions we could have made.”
Communications Manager, NKCDC
“The brochures look AMAZING. I am so proud of them and really feel that they communicate a new, fresh, and better brand. The whole design refresh accomplishes exactly what I was hoping – communicating modernity, accessibility and vitality while feeling like an organic evolution for a 44-year-old classical musical brand. We’re trying to be more relevant and competitive in a saturated NYC arts environment and I think the degree of design sophistication that you have achieved for us puts OSL on much stronger footing against our larger budget peers. Thank you again for all of your work – I hope you’re as proud of it as we are!”
Director of Marketing, Orchestra of St. Luke’s
“The Pixel Parlor team was truly great to work with. They have a knack for “gently” pulling you out of your comfort zone, providing options that keep everyone comfortable with the design process and won’t settle until everyone is 100% happy with the end result. The organization and project management is top notch and takes all of the guess work out of the process. We can’t thank them enough for helping us turn our brand into something we’re all proud to show off.”
Senior Marketing Coordinator, Strata
“Not only am I thrilled with the final logo, website, marketing materials, and signage designed by Pixel Parlor, it was a genuine pleasure to work with them. They are attentive, creative, and highly skilled at their craft. I would recommend them to anyone looking for design services!”
Owner, Everybody Movement & Wellness
“Working with Pixel Parlor is always a fun experience and the end product is always better than we imagined. Their team is fun, creative, efficient, and extremely responsive!”
Director of Communications, Springboard Collaborative

You Don’t Own Your Brand, You Share It
You co-create a brand with your customers. This is a shift from thinking about your brand as something you can control to something you co-create with your customers. No one likes a faker. People want the real-deal. And originality attracts the people who are the best fit, even if it’s a small group, to help you co-create your brand.
Our Impact Report 2021-2022
Our mission statement guides everything we do. It’s not a feel-good consideration or marketing tactic. It’s not a “bonus” when we have a surplus—it’s the driving force of our work to create positive change in Philadelphia and beyond…even when times get tough.
How to set goals for your website project (with examples)
Clear goals not only drive design decisions but they unify a team. Specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound goals (aka S.M.A.R.T. Goals) help reign in all the possible messages, actions, and design options at your disposal during a website project.
