Our enormously dedicated, coffee crazed team.
Juliette Oliva, partner and Creative Director of Pixelstrike Creative, combines her love of empathetic design with tactical know-how to help steer our ship. As Creative Director, Juliette has been the mastermind behind many of our print & web designs, even dabbling in animations, tattoo design, and comic strips. Juliette is also an animal whisperer. Not only has she given a comfy home to many dogs and cats, but we also once saw her catch a fly right out of the air!
Joseph Baker, partner and Operations Director is the tech-savviest member of the team. Our resident geek loves telling stories through code; taking designs and content and turning them into digital reality. Joe is a consummate learner who is always expanding his knowledge through an extensive book collection. On the weekends, Joe can be found diligently attending his BBQ smoker, and if you’re lucky, he may even let you try some of his delicious creations.
Although the newest member of the Pixelstrike Creative team, Louise Strickland already feels like one of the family. As our Brand Strategist, she works directly with clients to develop creative ways to tell their story. Louise is our wordsmith — from content writing to email campaigns, you’ll find her branded language throughout our recent work. In her spare time, Louise loves to travel. She’s currently working her way through all 195 countries in the world — only 185 to go!
Josh Squires is our SEO specialist who works hard to make sure that our clients get found. Josh’s extensive audits and exceptional knowledge are cornerstones of everything we do at Pixelstrike Creative. Not only does Josh excel in the technical details, he also has a creative eye for photography. Josh isn’t just all work and no play, he also loves collecting old records from obscure punk bands.
Juliette and Joe first met when they were placed on the same enterprise design team. Joe was the team’s “thrown into the fire” front end developer, and Juliette was the team’s star designer. After a few weeks, they struck up a friendship and began to compare notes on their freelance projects. They ended up hiring each other to work on various projects, finding that they worked well together with minimal throttling. In particular, they found a shared interest in using their talents to help companies with their marketing and to help avoid avoid the pitfalls they had seen from other agencies.
The J’s are particularly in sync when it comes to all the nonsense they’ve witnesses other agencies get away with, like slow response times, lack of communication, high prices, and lackadaisical attitudes. Also in sync is their love for the color orange. Because it is awesome.
After Joe left that company, they kept messaging each other to share designs and projects. After a little pestering and Joe’s wife acknowledging he had a “work wife” in Juliette, they decided to make their partnership official and started Pixelstrike Creative. Due to high demand for their services, they grew the business past freelance to the agency it is today.
