The Factory is Closed

On June 1, 2012 Pixelworx Idea Factory was born. It was, in fact, born out of necessity. As a new graduate from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, I had nothing to show an employer, so getting a job would have been a serious uphill battle. So I felt the best solution was freelance. But the plan was never to do it forever. On April 29, 2015 I was hired by an incredible company called Omnilert as Lead Designer. With that achievement comes a casualty. As of June 1, 2015 Pixelworx Idea Factory is closed. The smoke no longer billows from the smokestacks, the machinery inside has fallen quiet and the doors have been closed and bolted shut. It was a great ride and I want to, above all else, thank all of my clients for trusting me with their needs. This site will remain online for as long as it can, as a testament to the hard work and devotion I put into Pixelworx.

the tale of pixelworx

Once upon a time there was a boy who loved to draw. He drew instead of going outside to play, he drew while he was in class (and got in trouble for it), he drew at the supper table and he drew on things he probably shouldn't have drawn on (and got in trouble for that too). When he grew up he was swept away by the computer age and became an IT guy. But something weighed heavily upon his brow, that love of art and exploring the infinite possibilities of his imagination through drawing. He began crafting desktop wallpaper designs on deviantArt and suddenly he realized, "This is what I want to do! I want to do design!" So he ditched his IT job and went back to school, attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, graduating in March 2012. He chose to follow his own path after school. That boy, who loved to draw, doodle and spawn multitudes of gray hairs upon the heads of his parents, is me. My name is Kevin Harris and Pixelworx Idea Factory was my design studio. Now I am amazing a company called Omnilert where I work as lead designer.
