Pixel Perfect HTML: Revolutionizing Design and Dethroning PDFs


For years, PDFs have been the gold standard for high-quality documents, spanning marketing brochures, product catalogs, infographics, financial reports, newsletters, and even PowerPoint presentations. The allure lies in pixel-perfect design, offering unparalleled branding, styling capabilities, and unmatched design precision.

Pixel perfect design involves positioning and sizing each component on a design canvas with exact precision, akin to painting with dots in pointillism art. This meticulous approach allows graphic designers to unleash creativity, placing design elements on the canvas in unique ways. Unlike grid designs, such as responsive designs, where calculations abound, pixel perfect design offers flexibility, allowing designers to drag, drop, or paint elements seamlessly. In financial reporting, pixel perfect design becomes imperative for accurately representing meaningful hierarchies, totals, and subtotals in reports. 

Despite HTML having numerous advantages, its Achilles’ heel was the absence of pixel-perfect design, making designers gravitate toward PDFs.

Enter Storied Data, pioneering pixel-perfect, portable HTML—an innovative format that preserves PDF benefits while adding HTML advantages. This groundbreaking format enables the creation of highly branded documents that can be emailed as attachments, just like PDFs. However, it goes a step further by allowing these documents to be displayed as web pages—an unprecedented feature not achievable with PDFs. Despite PDF browser plugins, a PDF document rendered ina browser retains a printed appearance rather than adopting the look of a modern web page.

The Storied Data invention opens up a world of opportunities for companies to use, display, and share their most critical documents in ways previously unexplored. Moreover, this approach extends to a variety of document types, promising a diverse range of possibilities that will be explored in future articles.
