In case you haven’t noticed, we’re growing! We’ve got several open positions right now, and we already have a new crop of Pixonauts roaming our office, learning the ropes. With all the exciting change happening around here, lately I can’t help but think about the days when I was brand-new to Pixo. It really is a special place to work, and my colleagues were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

  Our open office is fraught with distractions… and friendship. My desk at Pixo is covered in a pile of UX and content strategy books, a mug of Papermate Flair pens, art by Zoe Si, a phone that never rings, and a small vase of water (the home of three fuzzy marimo, all named Gary). In eight minutes and forty-three seconds, I’ll allow myself to get up and walk around the room, or scavenge the Pixo Cafe for a mid-afternoon snack.

In August of 2015, Pixo started the discovery phase of redesigning the website for the College of Applied Health Sciences (AHS) at the University of Illinois Chicago. By the time we wrapped up Phase I of the project, Pixo’s director of UX, Melinda, and I felt like we knew the college really well. We’d talked to about 175 people associated with AHS through questionnaires, workshops, and a lot of interviews.

Earlier this year, I (along with millions of other well-intentioned folks) read the book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by organization expert Marie Kondo. The basis of Kondo’s theory is that every item we own should “spark joy” within us. She proposes a system for paring down our belongings so that when we look around our homes, we feel inspired by what we see.

Though I’d never worked as a content strategist before applying to work at Pixo, I did my research on the company like a seasoned pro (or at least someone proficient in Google), and before long, I couldn’t stop reading about Lori Gold Patterson, the CEO of Pixo. I told my girlfriends about her, who were similarly impressed, and soon we spoke often of the familiar “Lori,” a legend who only needed one name: Lori started Pixo. Lori encourages women in tech.
