These Charming Men website

These Charming Men

The design for the These Charming Men website took its cue from the album cover artwork of The Smiths. We selected some of the most iconic sleeves and applied the colour palette to each section of the website, so as you navigate the site, the background image and link colours change.

Social Radio

“Equal access to social rich media is required for social radio to work. We live in one world, and it’s getting smaller.”

Brian Greene (partner at and ambassador is a avid fan of social radio. Here he is interviewed by Pete Dulin for the blog BlipNation.

Dulin: What does this phrase, “people controlled radio,” mean to you?

BrianGreene: “People controlled radio” is radio that we the listeners control. Radio by the people, for the people. Radio has been in the hands of the governments and the regulators and the corporations and the advertising departments for 100 years. Now we have passed the point in needing anyone but ourselves to programme our radio needs. And I don’t just mean music; documentaries, news, comment, and chat, we can share it all on social radio platforms, and Blip.FM is the truest form of social radio that I have yet seen.

Bolton Trust Redesign and CMS

The Bolton Trust are an organisation that promote new business enterprises in Ireland.  Having previously designed their website, doop recently freshened up the site’s design as well as implementing wordpress cms in the back-end to allow them to update their ‘news’ section themselves. This worked so well that they came back to us asking for the entire site to be updateable using the same wordpress install. This involved rebuilding the code within wordpress whilst maintaining the original handcoded design.
