A Journey Driven by Passion and Curiosity

Our Story

Hi, I’m Faisal Zahid. I have the privilege of leading the way at Crafty Pixels.

Crafty Pixels is more than just a company; it’s a journey. As a kid, I was smitten by the magic of computers. Remember playing ‘Prince of Persia’ and ‘Street Fighter 2’? Ah, the good old days! Those early memories in primary school were perhaps the beginning of my passion for technology. But computers offered more than just games. They represented a gateway to endless possibilities. The sheer joy of designing in Photoshop, creating 3D models, and venturing into web design while still in school laid the groundwork for what Crafty Pixels stands for today.

Crafty Pixels embodies years of consulting, academic research, collaboration, entrepreneurial adventures, all fueled by a relentless drive for technological advancement and curiosity.

Fast forward to a decade filled with collaborations and expansion. We’re now a proud distributed team spanning 4 continents, headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand.

We’re a team of tech enthusiasts scattered worldwide, but Crafty Pixels deeply resonates with New Zealand’s progressive stance on community and the environment. Drawing inspiration from the indigenous worldview, our approach reflects sustainability and global unity.

Business units

Crafty Ventures + Crafty Digital

We started with a focus on building products and later diversified to offering software services to customers. Even though both units now function independently, this blend has created a unique DNA that puts equal emphasis on product design, user experience, and solid engineering.

Our Philosophy

When you partner with Crafty Pixels, you’re not just gaining a vendor; you’re gaining a team member. We embed ourselves into your objectives, striving to excel, being responsive, and focusing on long-term success.

People over Technology

We believe software should empower people, not get in their way.

Team over showmanship​

We value collaboration and collective effort over individual fame.

Progress over Perfection​

We prefer iterative improvements and timely launches over late and perfect releases.

What We Offer

At Crafty Pixels, we go beyond the typical tech agency model. Our unique blend of passion and expertise is evident in every project we undertake, whether it’s web development, digital marketing, or cutting-edge software creation. Our global experience, gained from a diverse array of projects, is our differentiator.

But what truly sets us apart is our dual focus. Alongside our service-oriented teams that provide top-notch support in Web Development, Marketing Automation, and CRM, we have dedicated small teams nurturing our proprietary products. This balanced ecosystem allows us to bring you the best of both worlds: innovative solutions and exceptional service.
