Working with Pixoul

Why should we hire Pixoul?

Choosing a design agency is no small task. We believe it's important that you find a team that recognizes your unique business value, understands your users, and can create novel and delightful experiences. With unparalleled support, innovative ideas, and exceptional client support, we boast some of the highest ROIs in the industry. Let's talk about your next project.

What's it like to work with Pixoul?

We're not your average design agency. We won't try to impress you with our bean bag chairs and free lunch buffets. We'd rather impress you with a client roster full of recognizable brands who come to us time and again. Why? Because our first priority in all of our work is you. That means focusing on how we can leverage our love for design into something that will resonate with your users, and fulfill real business goals. As experts in our field, we'll always speak candidly, give you truthful recommendations, and work with you to paint a better vision for your future. We believe we're in this together, and we're in it for the long-haul.

What services do you offer?

We tend to bucket our work into three major verticals.

  • Design agency: A full-service creative team, complete with a dedicated account manager.
  • Staffing & recruitment: A vast network of pre-vetted talent from former top companies like Uber, Airbnb, Google, and Facebook, all looking for their next gig in either part-time or full-time roles.
  • Workshops: Single-day or multi-day training sessions to help your team understand the business, value, and economics of good design.

Design agency

How long do projects take?

Every design project is unique—from mobile apps to product launches to interior design. Our team of creatives, project managers, and account managers will work with you to set a schedule and delivery cadence that works for your needs.

How much does it cost?

At Pixoul, we use value-based pricing models to structure our services. While this lends itself to both hourly and project-based work, we'll set clear expectations up front for how your budget gets allocated. Our main goal is ensuring we can give you what you need without breaking the bank.

What's the process like?

Every project begins with a kickoff call. We'll determine your exact needs, build a team that's right for you, and then get to work. Along the way, expect regular touch bases, clear communication, and personalized support. You'll receive tailored attention, individualized recommendations, and a knowledgeable team at every turn. Learn more

Staffing & recruitment

How soon can you staff an individual or team?

Within a few days of submitting job requisitions to us, we'll begin to send resumes your way for approval. We staff for both individual roles and entire teams, as part-time contractors or full-time permanent employees. Our team leverages connections with elite, design-led companies to get the inside track on some of the best talent. Learn more

How does the vetting process work?

Pixoul talent must first apply to join our network. After being vetted by our internal talent team on the basis of background, expertise, skill, and experience level, a small percentage will be admitted into our internal network. Candidates from our network will be recommended to you based on your unique needs, but the decision to extend an offer is always yours.

What kind of talent do you source?

We're proud to say that all our talent is US-based. We source both contract and permanent candidates across a myriad of design and development disciplines, including: UX designers, UI designers, visual and graphic designers, product designers, interaction designers, product managers, frontend developers, backend developers, etc. Don't see what you're looking for? Get in touch with us and see how we can help.

Workshops

Why should I invest in a Pixoul workshop?

With years of expertise in design and digital strategy, we're unapologetically committed to building better products and experiences though design thinking. We've created a series of structured workshops that can help you improve performance, increase sales, and redefine your brand.

How can you help our team?

We're big believers that design is for everyone. From executives, to sales, to individual contributors, we'll break down the practical steps of how design thinking affects every aspect of your organization, and give pointed opportunities to help employees put their new ways of thinking and doing into practice. The result? An empowered organization of employees who look to innovate, drive sales, and improve conversion. Learn more.

What will I get out of a design thinking workshop?

Our workshops cover strategic and practical applications of design thinking. They're suited for any level of contributor, from VP to associate. By the end of our single- or multi-day sessions, your employees will walk away with clarity around new business concepts, actionable steps toward your next product build, and a detailed roadmap for success.

Design Academy™

What's the Design Academy?

Built for individuals either looking to expand their skill set or make an entire career transition, our Design Academy is an experiential learning program. Working side by side with our own agency design experts, you'll learn design thinking and UX strategy, process, and how to apply these principles in real-life scenarios, not textbook generalities.

We've tiered our program into three affordable options based on your unique needs and schedule. You'll be paired with design experts, receive individualized education and training, and be given unprecedented access into the realities of UX design and agency work. Flexibility is important to us, so we offer both part-time and full-time programs. Upon graduation from our academy, students should expect to have a thorough knowledge of design, an ability to independently work and function within a product or design team, and have a fully established portfolio to present to employers. Learn more

What makes this experience different from a bootcamp?

Most bootcamps involve regimented coursework and minimal mentorship opportunities. Upon course completion, most students have engaged in a single, hypothetical project and have gained just enough knowledge to ace technical design interviews. 

While this is a promising career path for many, Pixoul's Design Academy is meant to instead focus on content, learning, and real-world application. Working daily alongside other designers, you'll experience, observe, participate in, and question how and why design happens. Not only does this prompt a more natural way of hands-on learning, but it also gives you the opportunity to tailor your course toward any design discipline, including UX design, research, visual design, etc.

Depending on course tier, students have access to unlimited mentorship, our career coaching team, our network of employer partners, and a guaranteed job*.

How does the job guarantee work?

Depending on the course tier selected, Pixoul students are entitled to our job guarantee*, according to our Job Guarantee Terms. Under this guarantee, students who are unable to obtain a qualifying job in a relevant design discipline (e.g. UX design, product design, etc.) within six months of academy graduation are entitled to a 100% full refund of our tuition pricing.

*For eligibility requirements, please see our Pixoul Job Guarantee & Terms.
