to share our creativity and
passions with the world


the more there is in life to celebrate

We are Austin and Nicole Barkis, the husband and wife team behind Barkis & Co. We are creative types with a passion for adventure. We love every dog, great coffee (usually iced), tacos, “dad” jokes, exploring this beautiful world, meeting authentic people, and pretty much everything that fuels our creative spirits.

the bigger the dream,

the more important the team

Most people ask us how we can live and work together without going completely insane. Sure, we have our moments but we do life together, so we have to work better together. Collaboration is at the core of human-centered design.

Some may call us crazy, but we believe in adapting our business as often as needed. That’s called for some radical changes over the past seven years, but we have always known that change was necessary to succeed. We keep a close eye on our clients needs and how we can adapt within the industries to meet them. We are constantly trend forecasting, then applying those elements into traditional practices so every service and every client gets the best of both worlds.

We originally set out to create separate companies – Pixel Redefined, Zeeqk, 1upCloud, Barkis & Co. – it just got so confusing over the years, as the lines between our companies and their services naturally dissolved, we finally decided to merge everything into one name.

Once we committed to the Barkis & Co. brand in 2018, we quickly realized we needed a solid team we could trust to provide the level of care and detail we have been known for. We proudly staff a collective of wonderful creative minds who are perfectly in line with our mission to share good vibes, provide honest business, and a unique approach to everything we create.
