13 Peaks Challenge

The 13 Peaks Challenge is an ultra-running challenge created by Cape Town extreme athlete Ryan Sandes. Ryan and a friend went for a run around the mountains of Cape Town that turned in to a 100km epic. He decided to turn this in to a community challenge and asked me to build a website for him to help promote the challenge to other ultra-runners.

I built a responsive bespoke Wordpress theme for a site that allowed Ryan to manage the content himself, including to easily create good looking blog posts. I created a bespoke plugin to manage the Wall of Honour page that allows athletes to upload their challenge times and photos and have their achievement listed on the site.

The Cyclists' Alliance

When professional cyclists Iris Slappendel, Garcie Elvin and Carmen Small decided to start a union for women professional cyclists they reached out to a range of different experts. We worked closely with the team and were responsible for creating with the name of the union: The Cyclists' Alliance. We developed the corporate identity including a manual on how to best promote the union through its identity.

We created a website to inform people of the union and allow them to join, and developed and social media strategy to help attract people to the new union and the work it is doing.

We created a range of logos for different uses, social media images, and a website with a CMS. We help The Cyclists' Alliance keep their content up-to-date and looking good.
