Junckers Hardwood has relied on the creative talents of Franz Krachtus with Hollywood Pixels for several years, and on a wide array of projects. Franz has consistently proven himself as a true, creative professional. He’s photographed athletes using our sports flooring and captured some amazing interior architectural shots. His photos have been used in our brochures, websites, and throughout our company on a global scale.
Franz has also designed and created a number of new marketing materials including our new Sports Binder. The binder design has been so well received that one of our clients asked to be referred to our creative design department (Franz) for assistance with their marketing materials.
We are overwhelmingly satisfied with the quality of work created, and enthusiasm Franz possesses. I would highly recommend Franz and Hollywood Pixels to anyone seeking the absolute best in design or photography.”

Franz will always be my go-to person for graphics and illustrations. I’ve worked with him for many years on a variety of projects and he comes through with fantastic work time and again. Most recently, Franz designed the cover for my first novel, coming up with a concept that was a perfect match to the story. Every detail was considered, right down to providing a mix of resolutions and sizes for different media uses. Franz sets incredibly high standards for his own work and it shows in the final product. He is the most creative, reliable and efficient designer I know.”
I have had the pleasure and honor of working with Franz Krachtus of Hollywood Pixels for over 4 years. Our working relationship began when we contracted Franz to help us create a new consumer brand which included logos and retail package design. Franz quickly understood our objectives and in very short time, he presented us with not one, but several, logo options clearly representing the brand message for our consumer product line.
Once we selected the final logo, he thoughtfully guided us through the process of color selection and package design. Franz carefully considered the steps required to package our product, display in retail, and affordably ship. He intelligently designed a package that encouraged efficiency in both labor and shipping which provided us with higher than anticipated margins.
At this point, we contracted Franz for all of our photography needs. Franz successfully shot product and lifestyle photos for print and online media and for our packaging and other marketing materials. These photo shoots ranged from studio product shots to outdoor/in-action lifestyle shots with models. Franz became our “go to” guy for all things related to advertising, marketing, and PR; acting as a contracted Creative Director.
Franz is one of the most creative people I have ever met. His talents are broad and deep and he is constantly learning new technology and ways to communicate messages artistically. Aside from his many skills and talents, Franz is one of the most generous, hard working people I have ever come across. He is fiercely loyal, always kind and professional, and always contributing as though he is an owner in your business.
After all of these years of working together, I not only consider Franz to be a major contributor to our business but a lifelong friend.”

Franz Krachtus of Hollywood Pixels has been working with my firm for many years. Recently it was time to modernize our website, logo and marketing materials, and we’re thrilled with his work. Franz’s value stems from the fact that he’s not only brilliantly creative and visual, but he truly understands how to make his designs functional and professional. He always listens carefully to my goals with every project and each time has delivered with flying colors. With the upgraded website, on the night of the launch, there was a technical problem, unrelated to any of Franz’s work, which was going to delay the launch. Yet, Franz was on top of it right away and worked all day to make sure it was fixed. He understood how important the launch was to my business and went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. I would recommend Franz to anyone with any graphic design needs.”
