About the bossman behind the business
I guess you could say that POP THE PIXEL founder, Adam Lyons, took his job as a “graphic” designer literally when he got started in San Francisco. Working in design for the adult entertainment industry will do that to you. He was all about the need for good design in what some would deem a taboo trade, and honed in on the market, garnering much success.
You could also say that he was transitioning before it was cool to transition…from adult entertainment to children’s educational entertainment. While one may think that it wouldn’t be the most seamless jump, as noted in his interview with BabyFirstTV, “A good designer will create compelling designs regardless of the type of content.” Of course, that’s exactly what POP THE PIXEL has done since its inception.
Adam had taken his desire to create art for people from unique and diverse backgrounds, and enrolled at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. He was keen on web design, graphic design and, of course, logo design. It should be noted that he was the first person in his family to attend, and graduate, from college. He valued the education he received, and the skills that he developed, and it sparked his motivation for more firsts in his family. For this reason, he started POP THE PIXEL in 2011 from the bedroom of his West Hollywood, CA apartment. I guess you could say that he came full circle.
