What's Pixel Lighthouse all about, anyway?

“I can think of no other edifice constructed by man as altruistic as a lighthouse. They were built only to serve.” – George Bernard Shaw

Pixel Lighthouse is a small agency built on a decade-plus of experience in communications, marketing, and software development in the for-profit space. We’re a small team that exists to help nonprofits like you create the next stage in their online presence. 

Your brand and website situation may be rocky and it may feel like there are monsters in the watery depths, but we’ll help you shine a light that serves as a beacon to pull in your community and show them the way forward.

Based out of the Dallas / Ft. Worth area of Texas, we work with nonprofits across the US. We only take on projects that we know are a good fit for our expertise and skills. When working with organizations, we devote our full attention to the project to make sure we create a website that drives results for your nonprofit and represents you well.

Andrea started as a copywriter but has since transitioned into the wider world of graphic design and UX. Her love for clear communication started with the written word, but she knows that effective communication requires more than words alone! Her expertise covers conversion copywriting, engaging content writing (e.g. blogs, case studies, annual reports), and compelling UI/UX design—bringing all of these together to create websites that build connections.

Outside of work, she’s a hand embroidery artist, a lover of her mother’s native Japan, and a mindful yoga enthusiast.

Is your nonprofit ready to grow?

Your org doesn’t need “just” a redesigned website. Redesigning your org’s site without the proper groundwork will put you right back where you started. Instead, you need a totally new approach that ensures you have an online presence that connects with your community.

In short, you need a website that’s based on:

  • Your mission and vision
  • Your community’s needs, wants, and expectations
  • Your team and other stakeholders
  • Your plans for the future trajectory of your nonprofit
  • Your org’s brand and authentic connections with your visitors

Are you ready to get a refreshed brand and website that resonates with your visitors, represents your org well, and enables you to do more good in the world?
