Piccsy Pitchdeck


After deciding to seek investment in the summer of 2012, we created an interactive & animated pitch-deck for Piccsy.

The deck got significant online attention--most notably from Techcrunch who announced "Death to Powerpoint! Piccsy Rethinks the Pitchdeck"--and resulted in over 50 meetings with the top venture capitalists in North America.

Recite


Realizing a trend in the proliferation of "visual quotes" on Piccsy and throughout the web, we quickly responded by creating Recite -- a web product that includes over 50 beautiful & dynamic typographic templates enabling users to "turn a quote into a masterpiece" in seconds.
