Blackbit grows internationally: Business greetings from Kiev!

View from our Kiev office

Our first international location is growing in Kiev, right in the middle of the vibrant innovation park UNIT.City and in good neighborhood with many international IT and tech companies that are benefiting from the national spirit of awakening in Ukraine.

If growing were so easy, everyone would do it. But international growth in particular is associated with unexpected challenges and new requirements. Business is pressing, but government agencies and authorities are setting the pace, and not just in Germany.

Our one-year intern: a virtuoso at the digital pencil

Welcome Joy!

A woman who knows what she can do and shows who she is

Even as she presents her first drawings, which she fixes on her iPad, it's clear to everyone: this young woman has talent! Our new intern is a true drawing ace! Once again it becomes clear: True ability does not need certificates or over-interpreted degrees! Long live autodidactics.

Expert Vlog: The Blackbit Pimcore Video-Tutorials

We demonstrate what Pimcore Data Director can do in our four-part vlog.

As experts for the open source platform Pimcore, we help with the installation of Pimcore, the configuration of MySQL or MariaDB, the functional extension through PHP programming based on Symfony and the design of templates for the Pimcore CMS. But when it comes to managing documents, images, assets and product information in the PIM, our customers want to work independently without the help of our developers. A recurring requirement is the import and export of data to and from Pimcore objects. With Data Director for Pimcore, this is done quickly and easily, in many cases without writing a line of PHP.

We show the many possibilities of the Pimcore Data Director

Pimcore is a simple yet powerful framework for building digital platforms with an intuitive interface for administrators. Its strengths lie mainly in handling structured data. That's why Pimcore is often used as a PIM and MDM system in e-commerce, but also for digital asset management.

Cross-media campaign: putting windows in the right light

Catchy texts and a progressive visual language convey our message:

Putting windows in the right light - analog and digital. Strikingly unusual, perhaps even a little provocative. A campaign that sticks. Even if there is no time to linger. Peace, security and thermal protection. In the midst of station hustle and bustle. But not only big and bold, but also small, on the screen. The wish: a cross-media complete package. Effective. Regardless of the format.
