About Us

Since 2005, Pixels & Verbs, LLC, has been helping organizations in the Austin area meet their business needs.

We grew out of repeated requests for the part-time services of our co-owners (Linda McMahon and Scott McMahon) in the areas of technical documentation and digital photography, as well as requests for sales of our available landscape photography. As the number and scope of these requests increased, Linda resigned her position directing the product documentation efforts for MessageOne, Inc., and focused her efforts full-time on Pixels & Verbs.

Since that time, we’ve continued to expand our client-base.

Our Philosophy

Pixels & Verbs believes in providing high value for your consulting/contracting dollar. We’ve used consultants ourselves and can’t stand being billed for little or no results.

We like working closely with our clients to ensure their needs are met. Your level of involvement directly impacts the quality of the finished product. The more you’re involved, the better able we are able to understand and meet your needs. We won’t be shy about offering our opinions, and appreciate open-mindedness. We’re not resistant to change and hope you aren’t either; after all, growth is optional, but change is inevitable and, for the most part, a good thing.

We also work hard to stay involved in our local community, giving back in as many ways as we can so that others can grow and thrive.
