About Beautiful Pixels


The power of many couldn’t be more evident in the world of pixels. While a single pixel means nothing more than its hex value, collectively they put forward something that conveys meaning, and in the right hands can be unnaturally beautiful. Beautiful Pixels is a place where we can collectively admire the works of some of the greatest user interface designs of our time, as no other art is as scientific, restrictively creative, and most of all, utilitarian.

The site is powered by WordPress (with Jetpack, of course!) and uses a custom theme. It runs on DreamPress servers and the fonts are served by Typekit, RSS Feeds are piped through FeedPress and stats are tracked using GoSquared and Mint.

Beautiful Pixels has always believed in beautiful, relevant and clutter-free advertising. Our Ads are powered by Carbon and we also offer a Sponsorship option for advertisers. Both these options help us pay our bills and allow us to keep this site alive. If you’d like to advertise on Beautiful Pixels, we have listed all the details on this page. We use affiliate or referral links where possible.
