    S2E3 - Ben Guerrette, Pixite

    I'm joined in this episode by Ben Guerrette.


    Ben is the Creative Director of Pixite, at Pixite, a small company that’s been flying high in the App Store for many years. Pixite have many apps in the store, ranging from creative journalling, graphic design, through to their colourful drawing and relaxation app, Pigment.


    Pixite have gone from strength to strength, with app revenue bootstrapping the business into life, and consistent App Store features for their products. As dynamics have changed with the App Store and revenue, Pixite have had to adapt their approach and business model for revenue. I thought I’d catch up with Ben to find out more.


    I hope you enjoy the show,


    David ✨
