Andrew Harris – Creative Director / Chief Creative Technologist
Over the past 10 years as a website architecture and design specialist, Andrew’s work for such heavyweight clients as Sony, Philips, Nortel, OLG and the CBC has consistently made news. Even in France. His work for Mini was awarded a Cannes Gold Cyber Lion at the Cannes advertising festival. Duality is his trademark. President & Creative Director. Designer & Backend technician. It all points to two things: creating comprehensive online experiences that capture the mind and win the hearts of consumers. Andrew started Pixelpusher to make that happen.
Graham Barton – Sr. Interactive Developer
If an engaging online experience is what you’re looking for, Graham is the guy you are looking for.

This directive has served him well in creating everything from flash based video games to fully interactive marketing campaigns including integrated video and back end programming. Graham has executed his mandate for clients such as the OLG, Amp’d Mobile and Nike.
James Porter – Sr. Designer, Multimedia & Flash
James’ experience in flash and online design runs deep.

James learned the tools of his trade at Sheridan College’s renowned illustration program and has been with Pixelpusher since the get go. He always has popcorn on his desk.
Matthew Wearn – Creative Technologist
Matt’s resume reads like a what’s what of new media design. 10 years of web design and development. 6 years of art direction and new media production. 8 years of flash design. 8 years of CMS planning and implementation. If that weren’t enough, Matt is also highly skilled at planning and project managing multi-faceted website architectures. Over the years he’s worked wonders for companies like CBC Kids, Ontario Power Generation and Sims Snowboards. (If that’s still not enough, Matt can also wail on the guitar.)
Eric Liphardt – Art Director

Venicia Wood – Sr. Production & Client Manager
Watching Venicia go during her 10 year career as a Client Service and Production Manager on accounts like Microsoft, Pepsi, SC Johnson Wax, Much Music and Zip.ca has taught us one important thing: she means business. Especially when it comes to ensuring that projects are delivered on time and on budget. The rest of the time she’s a riot. Which makes sense because she’s a Gemini. Both sides have served her well in successfully overseeing numerous projects in both online and traditional marketing and making clients feel well looked after and secure.
James Hackett – Creative Technologist
James has his hands in many different baskets but specializes in creating compelling visual content in 2D & 3D across multiple platforms. He is a master problem solver, creative brainstormer, and cook. Over the last 6 years James has been part of award winning teams on projects for Wrigley, Nissan, BMO, Nivea and BMW. Don’t be surprised if he offers you some delicious home made bacon.

Mike Linkovich – Technical Director
Mike’s 4 years as the Technical lead for the CBC kids website, plus his 10 years building web applications for clients like OPG and OLG, have positioned him as a digital jack of all trades. Instead of tools and hammers his technological toolbox is lines with PHP/Apache, Java, Perl and ASP and the ability to communicate how these work in everyday terms. Mike is also well versed in creating tailored CMS sites and is an expert doodler.
Gina Jamal – Production & Client Manager
Gina’s experience as a producer reads like a how-to guide to making magic work for clients big and small.

If that isn’t enough, Gina is also completely fluent in German. Ja, das is right, German.
