Explosm is a multimedia company best known for the insanely popular webcomic Cyanide and Happiness. From its start in webcomics in 2005, the company has expanded into international-selling card games, video games, animated shorts, and their viral Comic Generator, which Mutations built. In 2021, we took on the huge task of a complete redesign, migration (including 5000+ comics), and rebuild of the website in WordPress.

The Solution Highlights
- The Explosm website receives about 2.5 million visits per month. Our website redesign and CMS development focused on increasing product sales via cross-site product promotion, as well as streamlining content promotion. With a focus on game sales, we designed and integrated landing pages (e.g. Joking Hazard) into the Explosm website, which the company can now build upon for future products.
- Updating Explosm’s hosting platforms and migrating their webcomic content saved the company thousands of dollars per month in hosting costs while simultaneously simplifying the infrastructure.
