The story of how Chris & Dima built lost-pixel and evolved it into a successful SaaS

How & Why we built lost-pixel

Lost Pixel's Story

Lost Pixel was born from the real-world challenges faced by two engineers, Chris and Dima, at Adverity. In our daily work, we constantly grappled with the complexities of ensuring visual consistency in web applications. The available tools just weren't cutting it – they were either too rigid or lacked essential features. Not even mention absurd enterprise pricing and poor support.

So, in a classic tale of necessity breeding invention, we created Lost Pixel. It started as an open-source project, a solution forged from our own needs and experiences. It wasn't long before Lost Pixel gained traction beyond our immediate team, proving its worth as a practical, time-saving tool for modern frontend teams.

By 2024, Lost Pixel had evolved significantly. Recognising its potential to serve a broader audience, especially in enterprise environments, we transformed it into a SaaS product. This shift was about scaling our solution to meet the growing demands of the industry, ensuring that teams could maintain high standards of visual quality in their software products.
