About me

Pixelabi is my personal brand, my name is Juanma Gimper. I was born in Barcelona but I live between Barcelona and the Canary Islands.

In 1999 I started working as a web designer and developer. During all these years I have learned about Marketing, Branding, E-commerce, Usability, E-mail marketing, Ad campaigns and anything that helps me improve my web projects.

I have participated in digital projects but also in the Surf and Tourism industry. I have always done work for clients but I also have my own projects.

I created Pixelabi to bring together all these own work experiences along with your ideas or your new projects. I can help you improve your different ideas in existing projects and push your marketing strategy, also web development or branding.

I have experience as a manager of hostels and tourist apartments, this is where I had to be very creative and develop a method to improve direct bookings.

I consider myself a positive, enthusiastic and creative person. I love working with new ideas and projects, so do not hesitate to contact me for any question or business idea that comes to your mind. I will be happy to help you, greetings!

I BELIVE IN:

Great ideas

I believe in creatively mixing of previous ideas with unrelated associations and new knowledge.

Marketing and Communication

I think those great ideas have to reach your clients and that is why you have to speak to them in the same language.

Branding

I believe in visual simplicity, in the elegance of colors and in how much we can show without writing a single word.

Web projects

I believe in 360 digital communication and I believe these projects must be solid, structured and have a clear objective.
