Pipsqueak Productions offers a complete set of services

Highly-professional & modern website design and development
together with the skills to create content necessary to engage your audience.

Careful Design

Design can be divided into three stages: conceptual, interaction, and interface design. “What does it do?,” “How does it do it?,” and “What’s the look and feel?”

Clean Coding

There’s a beauty to clean code. But it’s more than aesthetics. Clean code is reliable and maintainable.


Creating great photographic content now requires both traditional and computer-based skills.

Writing & Editing

Professional writing must be simple, clear, persuasive, and carefully tailored to its audience.


Websites are usually collaborations with clients, and they change over time. But here are some screenshots from sites we’ve created.

Featured Project —

The ICC Forum is an online law review designed to help the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court moot questions of concern to her office.

Scholarly opinions are presented in long form. Experts and interested members of the public can weigh in on legal questions under debate.

  • Award Winning Justice Innovation

    The ICC Forum was named one of the World’s top three Justice Innovations of 2012 by the Hague Institute for the Internationalisation of Law (HiiL).

  • Highly Secure Platform

    The Forum has been under constant attack since its launch in 2010. To date, there has been no comment spam or data leakage.

  • Designed to Penetrate a Closed Institution

    Sheds light on the inner workings of a closed judicial operation while simultaneously protecting the interests of the Court.

  • Created an International Criminal Law Community

    Created a library of thought on international criminal law issues. Includes the LinkedIn International Criminal Law Group, also run by Pipsqueak, which has over 30,000 members.

  • Improved Reading Experience of Long Footnoted Articles

    Some examples: rich media endnotes can be read in place in addition to linking back and forth from the main article to the note. Acronymns and legal terms are defined. Background materials are collected and archived.

  • Executed Under Strict Budget Constraints

    The Forum was created and maintained in a highly economical fashion.
