The world's leading platform
for socially diverse stock media.

About blixel


blixel is the world’s first socially diverse stock media platform.
Powered by a global community of creators. 

blixel is reimagining the way stock media is consumed and distributed. Through our online marketplace, we facilitate the sales of socially diverse, people-centric stock media- images, videos, and illustrations.

Our stock media features diverse people in rarely seen and unusual roles- from a video of a Black woman riding a horse, an image of a child playing basketball in his wheelchair, to an illustration of a young man selling cellphones on the streets of São Paulo.

At our core, we believe that representation matters, and it defines everything we do. Powered by a global community of creators, we are using media, technology, and innovative ideas to make the unseen, seen – and shaping a more diverse, tolerant, and progressive society.

"Representation in media informs
reality's future. It's what takes us from potential to possible."

Cleopatra Wise
Chief Operations Officer

"As a Black American Muslim, I seldom see myself reflected in mainstream media- let alone in a positive and empowered way. I joined blixel so all young people will see themselves reflected in media."

Adedayo Alao

Chief Technology Officer

"I joined blixel so the world would
have more color."

Lena Coleman

Chief Administration Officer

"My family consists of people from different nationalities. I take pride in knowing that the company I'm a part of will show my nieces and nephews that there are other people like them, and people that are different from them, but equally as important. Our country, our world needs this."

Yasmin Dangor

Community Lead

As a content creator of colour, I advocate for representation in media. Socially Diverse, inclusive creative content is a catalyst for the breakdown of stereotypes, stigmas, and cultural barriers limiting our society. Representation transforms the negative into positive.
