What clients say about us

Marita has been an amazing resource for our team. She was initially hired to create a comprehensive marketing communications plan within a very tight timeframe. We then hired her to help build our brand and provide ongoing marketing communications support. She is highly organized, always prompt, and designs creative solutions. We love the results and I highly recommend her work.
Shelley Prosise, Assistant Executive Director, Institute of Translational Health Sciences

Marita is amazing. She has juggled multiple roles and tasks on a critical project with enthusiasm, speed and depth. Marita has contributed business analysis and process mapping, requirements gathering, user interface concept development and design, and has provided valuable project "glue." I couldn't have delivered my project without her.
John Methot, Software Development Lead, Merck & Co., Inc.

Pixel Theory helped transform and capture a very complex and intricate genomic scientific process into a single software system for managing our multi-million dollar contracts with contract research organizations. They created interactive prototypes, wireframes, and system workflows, and turned them into easily understood specifications and interface designs for the software team. This has resulted in an easy-to-use software system, improved efficiency of the business process, and an intuitive interface for the end user.
I highly recommend Pixel Theory and applaud them for their user-centered approach to complex cross-functional problems. The focus on the interface between the user and the software systems is the most critical piece of enabling business processes and Pixel Theory tackles this head-on with great success.
John Koch, Director, Scientific Information Architecture at Merck & Co., Inc.

I worked with Marita to design a web interface for a scientific data analysis and collaboration product. She took the project from initial conceptual design and refined it through a series of wireframe mockups and then full HTML prototypes to produce a fabulous design for my site. All along the way she kept circling back to our target users and did a great job understanding their use cases and requirements, and soliciting feedback on the design. She was a great person to work with and I will definitely continue to go back to her in the future.
