According to Backbone Magazine and KPMG, Pixton Comics is “one of the 20 companies driving innovation and changing the way we use the Internet.” The award-winning company is doing so from Parksville, B.C.
Pixton is the invention of husband-and-wife team Clive and Daina Goodinson. From their home offices in Parksville, the Goodinsons introduce the world to Pixton’s Click-n-Drag Comics™, a new, patented technology that gives anyone the power to create comics on the web.
The Goodinsons developed Pixton while they were still living in Vancouver. With the business purely online, Clive Goodinson says he and Daina realized they could live anywhere. They choose Parksville primarily for its combination of housing affordability and its proximity to natural offerings such as Rathtrevor Beach and Little Qualicum Falls.
“We can just step outside, and go for a walk in nature,” says Clive.
“We can have more space [than in Vancouver], still live in a nice place, and be able to afford it.”
“There’s nothing my wife or I want in our lives we can’t get right here.”
