Andrew Nicholas


Partner & Advisor

Andrew Nicholas is the founding partner of Pixel Parlor. His versatile toolkit—creative direction, project management, design, front-end development, business development, SEO/SEM—has been an essential element of the studio’s growth since its beginnings over a decade ago. A big-picture, process-oriented thinker, he makes sure the studio runs smoothly. He is the studio’s Human Resources lead, go-to technology troubleshooter, and point of contact for all financial and legal matters.

His design and technology background uniquely combine to help him create people-focused systems that make working with Pixel Parlor easy and enjoyable for staff and clients, whether we interact online or in our Fishtown studio.

Before founding Pixel Parlor, he put his interactive/digital skillset to work for some of the most noteworthy retail, performing arts, and fine arts organizations. And his playful, illustrative style has been seen in print campaigns throughout New York City and on global websites. Andrew holds a BFA from the College of Design at North Carolina State University, and a minor in Film Studies. He is a 2017 graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program.
