Mixel is a free app for iPad that transforms collage into a social activity. It launched in November 2011 to great reviews and was designed by CEO and co-founder Khoi Vinh (NYTimes.com, Subtraction.com). The path to launch was so intense that Mixel brought in two studios to help with the Web site: San Francisco-based Weightshift built the main site and New York City-based Gin Lane Media built the blog.
Both studios did a tremendous job, but in late December the company decided to redesign both with the goal of standardizing the page architecture and visual language. The new site, previewed here for the first time, is a much more minimal design that unifies the presentation of both with a single navigation, grid structure and interface conventions. It was designed by Khoi Vinh and Roy Stanfield.
