Started as something I yelled at my roommate, then turned into a sticker and finally a website.
You Are Pixel Perfect
You Are Pixel Perfect started as something I yelled at my roommate, realizing moYou Are Pixel Perfect started as something I yelled at my roommate, realizing moments afterward it was probably the nicest thing I had ever said to anyone. I made up a graphic to go with the phrase and since it was right around Valentine’s day I had stickers printed and gave them away to my friends. I stuck them up in random places and encouraged friends to do the same with the hopes that some downtrodden soul would see them and it would lift their spirits, or at least produce a smile upon receiving the anonymous nerdy compliment. The phrase, people’s enthusiasm over the stickers, and my timely enrollment in a php class prompted me to create a www.youarepixelperfect.com. It’s an extremely simple, completely anonymous forum for users to leave love notes to people, places, and things. These notes range from their love of JELL-O, to marriage proposals. The amount of traffic the site generated was completely unexpected, but it was very exciting to build something people enjoyed interacting with.
