Nature Connected launches

We’re delighted to announce the launch of a new project we’ve been working on for Liverpool City Region, called Nature Connected. We developed an entirely new brand, and have just launch the website to go with it.

Label Soup site launched

One of the projects we’ve been working on recently has been a site for the folks at The Fyzz, where you can create and print your own products – initially phone cases.

Going by the name of Label Soup, we’re hoping the site will go on to do big things, so watch this space for regular updates on the site.

NHS Flu fighter award = Happy Kev

Happy Kev

One of the campaigns Splinter worked on for Liverpool Community Health has just won an NHS Flu Fighter award, for ‘most innovative campaign’.

This is the happiest Kev has ever looked!

What ho! A Lovie award for Famous People!

Lovie award Famous People

Following on from the recent good news about the BIMA’s, we had some more ace news that the Famous People games we did for BBC Primary History have been awarded a bronze Lovie Award in the Education category. We’re in some esteemed company, judging by the winners list, so massive thanks to the Lovie folks for the award.

And on top of that, there’s a People’s Choice vote, so if you have a spare minute to cast a vote our way, that would be legendary!

If you want to play the Famous People games then head on over here.

Shortlisted for BIMAs


We’re really chuffed to find out that we’ve been shortlisted for a BIMA award for the BBC Bitesize Max & Molly games we made last year. They must like Pablo as much as we do! Thanks BIMA-folks, massively appreciated!

Splinter turn 15!

Splinter 15

Today, 1st June 2012, marks 15 years since Splinter Design first opened it’s doors back in 1997. Paul Musgrave has been quick to point out that he was running Splinter Graphics back in 1996, but it was 1997 that Paul and Chris formed the company as we know it today!

Behind the scenes of BBC Famous People….

Hot on the heels of one big BBC games project, we have another one to tell you about! This time it was for BBC Schools and was a series of games based around 21 different famous people – ranging from the very well known such as Shakespeare, Dickens and Henry VIII right the way through to lesser-known unsung heroes of the past such as Mary Anning, and Mary Seacole! This is the project that has kept us locked away for the past 6 months, so I thought now was a good time to give you all the run-down as the games have just launched on the BBC Famous People site – accessed via the thumbnails on each famous person’s page.

Easel does it!

We hear a lot about the Baltic Triangle (where we’re based) being the new creative quarter in Liverpool, but it’s not often that we see someone with an easel and paintbrush! He was even braving the rain!

Inside the world of Bitesize

About 6 months ago the Bitesize games we built for the BBC went live. We’re often asked what exactly goes into building a suite of games like those, so we thought we’d put together a bit of a blog post to creak open the door on our creative process… a bit like when Willy Wonka let people into the chocolate factory.

And the door is now shut…

Open Studio

Thanks to everyone who popped into our studio on Friday. It was great seeing such a variety of folks, and hope everyone enjoyed seeing some of the projects we’ve done over the years. Hopefully Liverpool Design Festival will do it again in 2012!
