One of our longer-term clients has been Serious Wonder, a progressive, futuristic site headed by founder Gray Scott that looks at all sorts of topics. The centerpiece is a regular radio show that Gray conducts with authors and other notable figures, available in full to subscribers or in part to all visitors. There’s also a curiosities section, with content curated by a growing number of authors, and a video section of both original and third-party content.
A year ago, Pixafy launched the original site on Joomla. As the site grew, a need for a more flexible platform became obvious, and we recently rebuilt the site on WordPress to allow for simpler multi-author features, a more modern setup with growth in mind, and simpler workflows to allow for easier posting of content. A refreshed design came with it, which aimed to make the site cleaner and putting the content front and center. Finally, audio is served from a better source, and subscribers can now download audio so they can listen while on the go!
Check out Serious Wonder and open your mind; you’ll find a lot to think about!
Last week Sugarpova launched to an enthusiastic welcome, garnering all sorts of press mentions. Among the more high-profile ones were USA Today, which shared a bit of the behind the scenes, appearances on CBS This Morning and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and numerous blog posts.
Red Antler‘s stellar branding efforts were also noticed by Business Insider, in an article cross-posted at Yahoo!, that also mentioned Pixafy’s work in building Sugarpova’s site in Magento and WordPress, while also tying in Facebook Events directly into the site.
Sugarpova was one of the first clients to launch in our new Boston data center, which was more than ready for the throngs of fans checking out the site. The site remained fast and stable throughout the high-profile launch, a testament to Pixafy’s mission to fortify sites to withstand the traffic spikes that happen.
When Maria Sharapova decided to branch out, she literally put her money where her mouth is, and it’s causing quite a racket.
Today, as Maria’s tech partner, we launched Sugarpova, working in tandem with our good friends at Red Antler for a timed launch to build and maximize the buzz around her innovative line of premium gummy candies.
Sugarpova promises to bring a fun and playful side to how we look at sweets, and the site fulfills on that promise. With Magento and WordPress as the building blocks, Pixafy prepped Sugarpova at a breakneck pace to meet the launch.
It’s an ace for Maria, and the net result is a delicious product you will love. Check out the live Sugarpova site, and while you’re there, be sure to order some tasty sweets!

At Pixafy, we really believe in the fact that hand-crafted products come with a lot of love and caring that make them special. That’s how we build our sites, and in the food world, we’ve found a kindred spirit in SusieCakes.
Founder Susan Sarich founded a business on time-tested family recipes, crafted with tender loving care, and has built a small chain of bakeries on the west coast with a fervently devoted following. Her company’s growing, and Pixafy is there to help her with her web technology needs.
Pixafy helped SusieCakes launch its online store a year ago, providing delivery within reach of SusieCakes’ stores as well as in-store pickup. As SusieCakes has expanded in the physical world, we’ve helped keep the site current in the digital world, expanding the offerings to more people.
