Who we are ?

Who <span class="inline-title">we</span> are ?

Since 2011, Spade has been helping you define your digital strategies, create your digital experiences and support your reflection about your identity. Each project is the beginning of a new adventure that we carry out in close collaboration with you, placing users (and their experience) at the heart of our concerns.

2 offices ...

And so many others in remote! We won’t go so far as to describe the living rooms, kitchens and makeshift offices of each team member, but we are delighted to present our official spaces.



Located in the Parvis de Saint-Gilles district, Spade’s office is discreetly situated at the end of its shady courtyard. We meet there regularly to work as a team or to share a convivial moment.

It is also equipped with a workshop/meeting room with all the necessary equipment to freed the possibilities and unleash your creativity.



Since 2020, the new Trakk hosts Walloon companies in the creative sectors. A place to discover, conducive to cooperation and meetings!

Spade has a cosy office and can welcome you for meetings or workshops in one of the many rooms available. The Trakk also gives us access to its FabLab, a well-equipped place to make prototypes.

Where does Spade come from?

Spade is not a story of shovels, picks and inveterate card players, but a business that brings together 5 independent enthusiasts in web and design : Denis, François, Benoît, Grégoire and Jean-François.

Spade chooses to offer its services to many sectors of activity: companies of all sizes, national and international associations, NGOs, startups, … whatever your challenge, we always find an effective solution to meet your needs.

At Spade, we are proud to present efficient, tangible and long-lasting projects that fit your budget.

Enfin, le goût du partage de l’expérience nous ayant gagné, nous avons voulu permettre aux organisations qui le souhaitent d’utiliser notre méthodologie hors des ateliers que nous animons : ce sont les jeux de cartes Minotaure.
En ateliers, nous utilisons entre autres ces jeux comme supports de la réflexion et aides pour aborder de façon ludique toutes les questions, toutes les facettes et tous les bloquants d’un projet.

Désormais, les jeux de carte Minotaure sont aussi disponibles pour une utilisation autonome !

How do we work?

With the passing of calls for tender and successes, personal experiences and those of the environment, a methodology takes shape, is fleshed out, refined and asserted. With user experience (UX) as its spearhead, Spade is giving birth in 2019 to the Minotaure methodology.

This name covers a working framework that covers the entire project from the first lines of thought to its online launch and technical maintenance.

Minotaure is first of all a set of workshops (ideation), then a way of conceiving (design), building (development), and finally managing your site (autonomy and flexibility of the tool) with intelligent and responsive support.

Around this way of working, our services are divided into 4 main categories:

  1. Websites & digital platforms
  2. Design System & Visual Identity
  3. Digital maturity support
  4. Editorial Management

Finally, as we are keen to share our experience, we wanted to allow organisations that so wish to use our methodology outside the workshops we run: these are the Minotaure card games. In workshops, we use these games as a support for ideation and as an help to tackle all the questions, facets and obstacles of a project in a playful way. The  Minotaure card games are now also available for independent use!



For the quality of his work on the  website, Spade won the Gold Site Excellence Award 2015 from the Fédération des Métiers du Web (FEWEB).

For the quality of its work on the website, Spade won the UPMC 2019 Digital Award from the Union Professionnelle des Métiers de la Communication.
