A good website is modern, secure, easy to use and maintain, and actively contributes to your sales. We’re Pixel Boom, and we make good websites.

We do this by keeping it simple. We make sites that are beautiful, clean, easy for you to maintain, and always easy for your customers to find what they are looking for.

our work

Exhibitions Gallery of Fine Art

Exhibitions Gallery wanted a site that felt very clean and easy to look at – a site that showcased the art, like a gallery space. We made the design monochromatic, subtle, and harmonious.

Their old site was insecure and hard for them to maintain, and didn’t work well on smaller screens. We migrated them to WordPress, and set up better systems for showcasing their current and upcoming exhibitions, as well as their best-selling artists and works.


NZ Council of Trade Unions

The NZCTU’s old site was built on Drupal 6, which was reaching the end of its supported lifespan. They wanted a modern and user-friendly update of the design of their site, that still retained their brand.

We simplified the site, and designed it to make it extremely easy to use. We migrated them from Drupal to WordPress, and completely redesigned and rebuilt their Find Your Union tool so that it returned more useful results.

“It was extremely easy to develop a working relationship with Eleanor and Ed, they gave extremely constructive advice, worked through all our questions and delivered a high quality result on time and in budget.”  – Sam Huggard, NZCTU Secretary.


We migrated PHANZA’s old Drupal 6 site to a new responsive WordPress site, and completely rebuilt their member directory to be easier for members to update and visitors to navigate.

PHANZA’s objective was to project an image of their work as contemporary and modern. So the design of the site references historical study, but steers away from serif type and dusty sepia tones.

“We’ve had great feedback from our members about our new website’s functionality and features.” – Karen Astwood, PHANZA Secretary.
