HotPixels started as a need. The need to adapt to a continuously changing environment.
Looking at how the internet content has changed in the past years and mindfully listening to all the predictions (90% Of All Internet Traffic Will Be Video In The Next Three Years) we decided to create something completely unique and flexible, so with the use of HTML 5 , we came out with the idea of a super-responsive, video-background WordPress theme.

Among the complete pack of features every creative professional needs, we thought it will be great to ease the use of HTML 5 video so we created an upload & go feature, we also designed some professionally looking customizable logo styles and we used a supersized full screen portfolio. Also, to bring the whole project to a higher level of uniqueness, we integrated some of our personal visual content which reflects our manner of doing things: keeping a free spirit and being obsessed with details (all our supporting content is included in the pack).

We’ve approached this project with a lot of enthusiasm and hard work, so we hope you enjoy usingHotPixels as we enjoyed designing it!
