"Pixellent Studio seeks to help small and developing businesses to reach their fullest potential by providing them with the tools they need for a healthy start. We strive to accomplish this by supplying our clients with the information, training, technical resources and marketing strategies necessary to grow and strengthen their business. Our activities are guided by 3 major beliefs:
(1) developing a sustainable and lasting business first requires a strong and well-established foundation,
(2) once we obtain a client, he remains our client for life as we continue to provide support throughout his development, and
(3) the client’s success is what makes us successful."
Pixellent Studio actually started as little more than a hobby to keep founder Myriam Dimanche busy during the summer months between semesters at Concordia University beginning in 2006. Her long-standing passion for Internet technologies made web design a natural avenue to explore. She enjoyed the challenges and nuances the field had to offer simply on a personal level, and grew increasingly intrigued by her new hobby. One client led to another, and another, and before long this pastime began to develop into something more. Myriam began to see the potential for turning this hobby into a full-fledged business venture, and seized the opportunity. Her company began running unofficially beginning August 31, 2006, and Pixellent Studio became a legal entity on November 9, 2007.

Kristin Bullock - Graphic Designer
Raised in the city of festivals, Montreal, Canada, Kristin Bullock has been greatly influenced by the French joie de vivre ideal that lives in her hometown and is taken with her wherever she goes. The city has instilled in her a deep appreciation for good food, good friends, music, and of course, art and culture. And although she loves to travel, Montreal is the place she calls home and the place she always comes back to.
Kristin graduated from the renowned Illustration & Design program at Montreal's Dawson College and, though her first love from a very young age was drawing and painting, she later found a new way to express her creativity through graphic design. Designing is a way of life and she is unable to just go out and buy someone a greeting card-she has to always design her own, personalizing everything around her. Kristin also has a passion for photography, interior design, and home decorating, and can't get enough of home improvement shows!
For the last six years, her career has focused on the music and entertainment field, through her work as a graphic designer for one of the largest and most successful independent music labels in North America. Always looking for a new challenge and opportunity, she has expanded her design abilities through various projects including magazine ads, corporate identity, product development and most recently acting as Art Director for Miami Living magazine.
