Meet the founders of Pixel Primate
Whilst most 6-year-olds were outside running around after a football, the 6-year-old Danny was often inside, programming in BASIC and laying down pixels with Deluxe Paint II, on his Amiga 500.
Fast-forward a few years: complete with a degree in Computer Science; an ear for electronica; and a twinkle in his eye, Danny decided to stick it to The Man and go out on his own.
Since then, he''s realised he will never make it as a professional (or even a terrible amateur) footballer, but has picked up a thing or two: tonnes of experience building web systems, apps & user interfaces, from the ground up; designing multi-lingual print spreads in everything from Japanese to Russian; and, more importantly, how to paint teeny tiny miniature figures for his nerdy games.
Sam wasn’t always destined to be a creative genius; despite adorning his bedroom walls with posters of Bauhaus and Basquiat’s best, he ignored the signs and decided to become… an accountant.
Fortunately, that’s not how it went down. Fast-forward a few years: after earning a degree in graphic design; his first salary as a designer; and a few broken bones from skiing a bit faster than he ought to, Sam decided to quit his design job and make it on his own.
Since then, he has learned a thing or two about himself: he can design anything, for anyone – from interior fit outs and brand conception for chain restaurants to infographics and brochure layouts for the construction industry; but, more importantly, he has also discovered that he can grow an awesome beard.
