To be a business, is to have a story to tell.

We love building things that fix or improve existing problems. Ideas and innovation are about improvement – improvements on usability, quality and cost. Some of our products will most definitely create a stir while others will make vast advancements on existing ideas and technology. Our success is determined only by the amount of positive difference the improvements make.

Wixel primarily invests in creating and fuelling new ideas related to commerce – both online and mobile. It serves as a springboard for creating beautiful and robust commerce-enabling products. The company profits through select clients and products, but gives back to the community through Open Source projects posted on GitHub.

Every product or project embodies usefulness, strategic thought, technical mastery and great design through quality, clarity and attention to detail. People, strategy, design and technology is at the core of our work.

Wixel is a privately owned innovation studio, founded July 2010.
