Who we are and what we do

Pixelflakes is a London based studio comprised of artists. Our carefully selected team specialises in visualising the unbuilt. The approach we take evokes thought and conveys emotion. It is this approach that has cemented on-going working relationships with many of our clients. Whilst we all descend from different backgrounds and nationalities we share a common passion and language for quality artistic visualisation.

Marvin Nooitgedacht

Having grown up in the Netherlands, Marvin made his way over to London to co-found Pixelflakes in 2012 alongside Matthew Reid. Marvin is the Managing Director of Pixelflakes and holds a Master’s degree in Art & Technology from the University Of Utrecht, Netherlands.

Marvin enjoys Basketball, table tennis and all things media / technology related. A self-confessed gadget-man.

Matthew Perry Reid

Matthew is our Visualisation Director and Founding Partner at Pixelflakes. He holds a degree in Architectural Visualisation (BA Hons) from Bournemouth University and has worked at renowned visualisation studios across London.

When he's not at Pixelflakes you'll find him attempting to create the ultimate Old Fashioned, still a way to go!

Pedro Botelho

Pedro is an associate at Pixelflakes and holds an MA in Architecture which he acquired in his home town, Lisbon. Prior to joining Pixelflakes in 2013 Pedro worked at varied architectural practices such as Promontorio in Lisbon and Tryptyque in Sao Paulo.

In his spare time, Pedro enjoys practicing yoga and drawing. He also runs an independent publisher for artists – Pareas Parias.

Benjamin Marzys

Ben joined Pixelflakes in 2014 after having worked as an architect at architectural practices NFA Office and Studio Arne Quinze in Belgium. He completed his studies at Cardiff’s Welsh School of Architecture and London’s Bartlett School of Architecture.

He’s a sharp tennis talent and has a keen eye for photography. Ben was also once "a famous DJ" in Belgium, or so he claims. We're still unsure.

Chloe Mann

Chloe graduated from Bournemouth University, where she studied Product Design. Chloe joined us as one of our very first interns. After her internship she chose to go travelling and worked as a visualisation artist in Sydney Australia before moving back to the UK. She now forms part of our talented team of artists.

Ibrahim Bundu

Ibrahim graduated from Bournemouth University in 2014 with a degree in CGI: Modelling and Animation. He joined Pixelflakes as part of our internship programme.

In his spare time you will find Ibrahim reading the latest issue of Batman whilst being beaten by 15 year olds at Call of Duty. An avid gamer, and self confessed burger enthusiast.

Javier Cascales

Javier joined Pixelflakes as an intern in early 2016. After studying Architecture in Valencia, Javier worked in practice at RT Arquitectos in his hometown of Murcia and Kollage Estudio in Madrid before moving to London.

Javier is a big fan of theatre and is slowly working his way through the productions here in London.

Lauren Wells

Lauren joined Pixelflakes at the end of 2015 after graduating with a degree in Illustration & Visual Communication from the University of Westminster. As well as helping to run our busy studio Lauren is also part of our media design team.

In her spare time, she enjoys illustration, ceramics and is our resident Mary Berry.

Errol May

Errol or ‘EJ' as he’s affectionately known, graduated from Southampton Solent in 2015 with an honours degree in Computer and Video Game studies and found his way over to the Pixelflakes crew having also worked at Area Sq.

EJ's favourite writer is the Japanese born Haruki Murakami and highly recommends the ‘Colourless life of Tsukuru’ if you’re in need of a new read. EJ loves a bit of green tea and a boogie, not at the same time we hope!

Julian Araya

Julian studied Architecture in his home country of Argentina until his travels took him around South and North America for three years. Before moving to London, he worked at ImageFiction in the Chicago Loop and Volley Studio in Brooklyn.

Julian is a Mate (Mah-tay) lover – a traditional Argentinian drink – and can be seen sipping on it every morning at his desk from an extremely suspicious looking mug.

Rich Macey

Rich joined Pixelflakes with a wealth of knowledge in early 2018 having held an Associate position at Foster and Partners in the Design Communication team for over 5 years.

In his spare time Rich likes to keep active and is an avid jogger, rock climber and also has a passion for oil painting, our resident Picasso!

Kasia Paschilke

Kasia joined Pixelflakes in late 2017 having worked as a Visual Artist at the renound architectural practice, Foster and Partners. She studied Interior Architecture at the University of Fine Arts in her hometown of Poznan, Poland.

Kasia is a bit of a book worm and can be found with her nose buried in fantasy novels by Brandon Sanderson. Along side that, she also practices martial arts, we all feel a lot safer having her here now!

Vale Baruffo

Val joined Pixelflakes in early 2019 having studied Photography and Journalism in Rome before studying Architecture at the University of Rome La Sapienza.

As our resident Italian Val is a big foodie, often bringing back delicious treats from her home city of Rome for the team to gorge themselves on. She’s a self-confessed 3D addict, and often works on personal work in her free time, keeping the whole team inspired and fed, colleagues don’t get any better than this!

Sara Hollósy Nygren

Sara originates from Sweden and joined the Pixelflakes London team having studied Architectural Visualisation at Yrgo in Gothenburg.

Sara used to be a ghost, yes we were confused too. Prior to joining Pixelflakes, Sara worked as an actress at a haunted mansion in Liseberg. Her favourite character was a psychic medium with a hunchback, watch out, she even used to make the adults cry.

Johanna Andersson

Johanna forms another member of our ever-growing Swedish army here in the Pixelflakes office, having graduated in the Summer of 2019 from the Yrgo course in Gothenburg, Sweden.

She has a passion for stout, crime movies and off key singing. She is fascinated by all forms of dance but (much like the rest of the Pixelflakes crew) has two left feet. She owns a skateboard but has never learnt how to ride it, any teachers out there?!

Lina Krus

Lina joined Pixelflakes in the summer of 2019 having studied for a Bachelors degree in Interior Design and Visual Merchandising at Linnaeus University in Växjö. Alongside that she also completed the Yrgo course in Gothenburg, Sweden.

A keen creative, Lina can be found sewing her own unique clothing whilst digging into a tub of ice cream watching The Office. Karl Pilkington is her hero.

Gustav Asteberg

Gustav, aka Gussy Guss, aka Little G, aka GG, aka My G hails from a background in Product Development and joined Pixelflakes having studied at (yep, you guessed it) Yrgo in Sweden.

He’s a keen traveller, having visited Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Nepal and New Zealand which he claims is the ‘best country in the world’. Route 66 is next up on the list, time to start saving for that Mustang.
