Pushing Pixels, Not Missional

I make my living pushing pixels – whether those pixels are animations, creative design, moving images or stills. Because of a large broadcast trade show that goes live every April for which I do creative design, animation and production work – February, March and early April are exceedingly busy for me.

At this stage of the project, every waking minute, save the few I'm taking to write this, are spent pushing pixels inside Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects and Final Cut Pro – or on location in Toronto capturing pixels.

I think the discussion going on around how the definition of the word "missional" is an important one. There are lots of posts at this small corner of the interwebs that talk about that very thing. I wish I could contribute to the particular missionSHIFT conversation happening now, but I simply don't have the time to engage in the kind of intelligent conversation that needs to take place. Not for another month, anyway.

The trademarked logo above was designed by Imbi Medri-Kinnon and me for a new subsidiary of our 25 year old company, Medri Kinnon Productions Limited – we hope to launch Pushing Pixels later this year.

  1. Cool logo Bill – wonderfully suggestive.

    God bless the pixel pusher man! (there’s a lyric like that, right?!)

    Keep creating…with kindness,

  2. Scrumptious logo … I love it. Kudos to your design firm πŸ˜‰

  3. Pushing pixels… in Illustrator… surely not Bill?
    Nice logo though. All the best with the new company.
