Pixton

Overview

Pixton empowers the world to communicate graphically with comics.

Pixton introduces the world to Click-n-Drag Comics™, a revolutionary new patented technology that gives anyone the power to create amazing comics on the web.

From fully posable characters to dynamic panels, props, and speech bubbles, every aspect of a comic can be controlled in an intuitive click-n-drag motion.

Winning over 10 prestigious awards, Pixton Comics was named a “leading Web 2.0 pioneer” and “one of the 20 companies driving innovation and changing the way we use the Internet” by Backbone Magazine / KPMG.

Pixton is the invention of husband-and-wife team Clive & Daina Goodinson, based in Parksville, British Columbia, Canada.

Pixton has different “modes”. Pixton for Fun, Pixton for School, and Pixton for Business. There is a free trial for teachers as well as month-to-month or year per student pricing. The Pixton for Fun version may allow the potential for social interaction outside of the classroom/school/district set of students.
