A labour of love for our local bar, we’ve designed and built a very customised new wordpress site for them. The client was very easy going and happy for us to lead the design and choose the technology to showcase the content. Here are some of the cool features we used Bilingual – using localstorage, […]
Blackspike helped build the online version for the existing Messenger weekly print guide, a great flier promoting all the events and parties in Chamonix Mont Blanc, a large ski-town in the French Alps. It needed to have a calendar updated by a Google Calendar feed for ease of use, and it needed to be responsive […]
An advanced Wordpress site using HTML5, CSS3, jQuery and Wordpress, designed & built from scratch.
The one and only DocVek asked us to design and build a WordPress theme to showcase his absolutely stunning artwork. His flyers, posters and even shoes are all fantastically creative works of art. We were happy to build his site for him, and he’s promised some artwork in return – can’t wait to see it!
We met DJ Irk earlier this year in Chamonix, a great party DJ as well as a top snowboarder, he asked me if we could redesign his site. We both redesigned it and recoded it, this time as a custom WordPress theme. It uses fantastic artwork from DocVek (who’s website we also built!) as a […]
PSD to HTML, this was a build only job from artwork supplied, this is a tight site heavy on jQuery with some bullet proof HTML/CSS too. For all your web security needs check www.vigilantebespoke.com
Rich G from Conchango went solo this year and needed a web presence and some branding work, this is the site we built him, WordPress as a CMS and a shuriken style ninja logo. Check the live site here blogs.xamlninja.com
A website for our friends at Wildfire bookings, a hip hop PR agency in Bristol. The supplied photos were awful, so collage was the way to go, and pretty successfully to we reckon.
Awesome band Smerins Anti Social (catch them when you can) called in design hero Radim Malinic of Brand Nu to do the artwork and us to build their new site. It looks fantastic and was a joy to work with graphics this good.
The biggest Silverlight piece we have ever built – and one of the biggest Silverlight 2 RIA’s ever made was a fantastic, global project to work on. It took all the live and pre-recorded Setanta sports feeds and displayed them in a fantastically rich web browser app. It had everything from TiVo like programming and […]
Logo and website design
The music download stores we designed at OD2 (pre Nokia Music) were interesting in that each store was rolled out to web, TV (via mediacenter) and mobile – each with device specific constraints. It was great experience, and we learned a lot about usability dependent on situations (more than just interactive TV needs enormous buttons). […]
This website was for the super talented artist, Jo Conlon, who wanted a blog to promote her exhibitions and new work, and a shop to sell pieces online. Rather than using the clunky zencart which would be a bit overkill, we used WordPress with a custom theme and the (also somewhat clunky) cheap plugin wp-ecommerce. […]
Zencart eCommerce site Visit keyring.com
The incredibly talented VJ/DJ Cheeba has been bugging us for a site for ages, so finally we whipped him up a custom themed site using WordPress as a CMS and blogging platform. See the live site here: djcheeba.com. It’s definitely a step beyond most blogs and dj sites, and contains the following features: Flash video […]
A friend asked us to build her a full ecommerce site for her ethical goods business, so after our success and experience building zencart site, ikeyring.com, we thought we’d build hers with it too. Sadly, it never took off, here is how it looked anyway, with their logo we designed
BlowersWorld.com is a site originally thought up by DJ Pete Kraymon, to document the phenomena that is ‘doing a blower’. The strapline explains it best: “From this point on expect vast improvements in quality of life. All you need is a camera and a loose set of cheeks. The enjoyment will come naturally.” Anyway, we […]
This is a site I built from a friends artwork. It uses a cunning mix of live google spreadsheets pulled into wordpress, and dynamically formatted with CSS and jQuery. I’ll do a tutorial on how this is done soon :)
The Who What Why Ian Griffiths, a well respected developer, speaker and author who literally wrote the book on WPF amongst other his many other projects (he even helped write Artworks for the Acorn Archimedes early 90’s – the first Illustrator-like app I ever used!) and an all round good bloke. His blog gets ~23,000 […]
