Need to show the details of your designs?
Say hi to Specctr.

Familiar Story

Has this ever happened to you? You just spent the last few weeks designing a user interface. Feedback from users has been positive and you are ready to show the development team what they will be working on in the next iteration. After the demo, you are confident that they understand what they are building and how everything should look and function. A few days later you check in to see how things are progressing.

A little about Chen and Dimitri, from Chen and Dimitri!

My name is Chen, I’m an interactive designer. Dmitriy is a web developer. We were lucky to become friends in High School and even luckier to have kept in touch. We have been close friends for over 10 years. We co-founded On Pixel inc. in July of 2011.

Howdy! Have you been wondering what’s been going on here?

A few months ago, when I first had the idea for extendingfireworks.com, I had a huge list of things that I wanted it to do. I spent some time jotting everything down on paper, vetted out some ideas with other designers and started hunting for the best way to get er’ all done. Then Thanksgiving happened followed by Christmas and a well deserved vacation. I noticed that time was flying and I still had not made the progress that I wanted. That is when I got some  good advice (from my awesome wife Michelle), “Just start small and go from there.”  So I decided to just put up something and get things rollin’ even if it was small.
