Web design is no longer an industry buzz word. As a Design Consultancy and Web Design & Development studio in Baltimore, we are constantly developing creative solutions current with the times.

The DigitalPlaybook App for the iPad delivers a sports team's proprietary digital playbook content in a secure manner to players and coaches within an organization. In addition to being a playbook reader, the DigitalPlaybook App for the iPad offers teams the opportunity to create player rosters, manage team events and appointments and view privately-hosted videos & photos.

Coined ” the dentist with a smile”, Craig L. Snyder wanted to rebrand himself and the practice, creating a more solid visual presence in Baltimore City and County. The new look reflects a slight sense of “humor”, both in the logotype and accompanying merchandise and collateral. Pictured below are business cards, with fun “smile quotes” on the back side of each staff member’s card, further reflecting the humorous tone. Ultimately, the effect of the new branding should be a positive one, with each patient either arriving or leaving with a smile.

our approach
An identity system is the building block of most successful brands. A strong logomark should be both timeless yet contemporary. A well-designed identity system builds equity in the marketplace and elevates the business, product or service to a new level of recognition and purpose. From the initial concepts to project completion, we create identities that stand out in the crowd and stand the test of time and change.

Consistency is the key to successful brands. While a logomark can be considered the kernel of a brand's growth, its value is established and made credible in the marketplace through the use of effective sales and marketing branches. We help our clients examine their existing logo and strategize on the best ways to effectively apply their brand forward throughout print and interactive media.

Design has the power to decorate a space, inform the public, drive sales and most importantly, inspire change. We believe that "design" is more than a trend or catch phrase. It is more than a color scheme or slogan. Design permeates our culture. We live and breathe it in the decisions we make throughout our daily routines. Whether it be a brand of toothpaste or wall paint, chances are, someone has designed, packaged and strategically positioned that product to entice us to purchase it over others.

But good design is much more than mere decoration. It is, more importantly, about effective communication. From the smallest pixel of an image, to the point size of the letterform, we believe that every business, brand and individual has a message that needs crafting. We help businesses identify who they are, what they want to say, and use the power of the image and word to creatively craft their message to the right audience.

Thanks to the rest of the team for a great effort in getting these pages up and running! Take a look



W orking closely with Baltimore-based IT global testing leader, Prometric™, we developed a complete multimedia and print suite to secure a lucrative global contract with Cisco. The concept for the entire package revolved around Cisco's tagline, "Welcome to the human network." Both the CD artwork and the interactive presentation reflected the global reach of both companies by utilizing a visual "timeline" of the globe, animating and moving simultaneously through key areas of the world, from right to left. Starting out in Cisco's San Francisco, the animation moves through the key 9 points of the presentation, while wrapping around the globe, and eventually making its way back to California with the message "Welcome back." The widespread success our work has led to its translation into several languages and shown at key global offices.



We recently designed a promotional mini-site for electro-pop band Moenia, in conjuction with the release of their new album, Solar. The landing page featured a rotating galaxy and solar system as an interactive navigation tool. A blog and fan message board are in the works. MoeniaSolar.com



Formerly Thomson Prometric™, Prometric™ recently partnered with Pixels+Points to create a complete branding initiative for their presentation to Microsoft Corporation. We designed and developed a collateral package which included data sheets, a CD-ROM package, proposal cover and pocket folder.

Prometric's pitch, along with the collateral items and CD-ROM interactive, created quite the impact, so much so, that Prometric is now the sole source Microsoft vendor for all of their IT test certification centers around the globe.Congratulations to the Prometric sales team.

Sauce it up!

Pixels+Points is currently working with Compete-At, a Maryland-based start-up with a product suite that helps athletes, event organizers and National Governing Bodies register, create and manage sporting events online. We are developing a new look for their corporate Web site and accompanying verticals, (i.e. sailing, curling and archery).



With the recent success of Spring Awakening and Duncan Sheik's accompanying score, we recently created a design proposal for a potential resissuing and repackaging of Sheik's last album "White Limousine". The new packaging would be a traditional jewel case design with a black & "white" slip cover. Removal of the slip cover reveals the amazing full-color imagery throughout. An 8-page booklet, inlay tray graphics and the silkscreened "car wheel" CD face art, round out the package.


noteworthy
