    Gary Pageau of the Dead Pixels Society talks with Joaquin Quenca Abela, one of the founders of Europe's fast-growing graphics company, Freepik Company.  Based in Spain, Freepik was founded in 2010 by brothers Alejandro and Pablo Blanes, along with their friend Joaquín Cuenca Abela, founder of Panoramio (acquired by Google).
