I’m Nathalie, the girl behind SheCodes. I’m a Graphic Designer by trade but have sinced crossed over to the geek-side. My time is spent working as part of the founding team of TreatOut, and helping other startups develop their brand and marketing on a consultancy basis, all from my studio in Sevenoaks, Kent.
What Is Your Passion?
I love anything that’s creative. I’m also addicted to coding. Web Design and Development has been the perfect opportunity for me to combine and explore both.
I like to focus on visual impact and simple concepts to maximise usability and create a positive User Experience. I follow Best Practice guidelines but without stifling Creative Expression.
Originality is important and I admire those who dare to stand out from the crowd. I like to go against the flow. I like simplicity, as life’s complicated enough, but never compromise for bland.
Who Are Your Clients?
I work with agencies either in-house on a short term contract basis, or as a remote based team member on a flexible basis.
I also work directly with individuals and small businesses who either need a website designed from scratch or have an established website in need of renovation and eye candy.
What Makes You Different?
I make it my business to understand my Clients’ businesses through their eyes. I want my Clients to feel they have ownership of their Website and value their input throughout the creative process. I strive to educate my Clients on how to create and maintain a strong Digital Presence. A website should never be looked at in isolation but should encompass basic SEO techniques, website analytics and social media strategy.
Being a businesswoman myself, I understand the importance of keeping to deadline and within budget. I appreciate the necessity of honesty and value integrity. Open, two-way communication is paramount.
