Spike design is a creative community nestled near the centre of Bristol close to the docks. Spike design itself is part of Spike Island which is Art and Design exhibition space and studio space. Built in an old Brookbond tea factory the site has a sense of history about it with large open plan spaces, high ceilings and wide halls. We chose Spike as our new home for its collaborative feel and its sense of community. Being in a shared space felt the right thing to do and gives us the chance to meet others working in creative disciplines. Having this contact with other disciplines is so important for creative thinking and is great brain fodder and can often lead to inspired ideas. The facilities were also a big draw, with spacious meeting rooms and a great little cafe.
