BELIEF

Style is the flavour of the month. It is not timeless. Story is.  

At Pixel Palette we believe that style is for others to find in our work. Not for us to restrict our expressions with. Otherwise we would be limiting ourselves with what is expected. Instead, we are in the business to surprise and be surprised. 

Our guiding principles ~ Story trumps style & emotion trumps story. Because no matter which side of the screen you are sitting at, when the dust settles all you remember is how you felt during the experience. How you felt when the communication happened. 

WHAT WE DO

Pixel Palette was founded by director Vikram Dasgupta in 2004. We provide creative services from conception to actualization, with whatever means the subject demands. We instrument storytelling irrespective of its medium. Our expertise ranges from live-action production to motion design & from animation to visual effects. We recognize the need for brand diversity of our clientele and understand the varied demands that patrons have. Our objective is to act as the creative tool for exchange of ideas between the labels and the consumer.
