Monkey Chamonix – Responsive website design and build

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, […]

The Messenger v2 website redesign and rebuild

We built and launched v1 of The Messenger, the Chamonix nightlife guide, 18 months ago in 2013. With a new ski season we rebuilt it to be more responsive and usable, surfacing more news and events and showing off the interviews and content. Built with WordPress, it has an events calendar, filterable local business section […]

The Messenger – Chamonix nightlife guide

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 […]

DocVek Website

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!

DJ Irk – the hardliest-working man in no-business

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 […]

Google Docs as a lightweight CMS Pt1

We created a website for a friend, who wanted to display a lot of tabular data. We couldn’t find a way to make it easy to update on a regular basis, so we cooked up a simple CMS using a little PHP, jQuery, HTML and Google Spreadsheets. Part 2 shows how to integrate Into WordPress. […]

Vigilante Bespoke Website

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

XAML Ninja Website + Branding

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

WildFire Bookings

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., artist gallery and shop

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. […]

DJ Cheeba website

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: It’s definitely a step beyond most blogs and dj sites, and contains the following features: Flash video […], google docs and wordpress

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 :)
