Web design agency expands team

Nicole Houseman

Nottingham based web design agency Strafe Creative, has appointed Nicole Houseman as Project Executive taking its team up to 13 members of staff.

Nicole will be the main point of contact for clients, ensuring the smooth running of branding, website and digital design projects, managing deadlines and ensuring that any client, designer or developer needs are quickly handled.

Joining the Strafe Creative team from multi-channel retailer, Missguided, where she was a web administrator, Nicole brings a wealth of experience in the Magento ecommerce platform and supporting content management systems. Familiar with fixing onsite errors, actioning and flagging tickets from other departments to IT, sales forecasting and managing campaigns Nicole is well used to managing project teams in a busy retail environment.

On her appointment Nicole Houseman said: “It is fantastic to have joined the Strafe Creative team. In previous roles at Missguided and Naylors I’ve had responsibility for bridging the gap between the e-commerce and marketing teams and I’ve been able to dramatically improve overall communications. I’m hoping to be able to do the same at Strafe, so we are all working together create even more brilliant websites and campaigns.”

Ross Davies, Managing Director of Strafe Creative says that Nicole has already brought a lot to the table, commenting: “From her organisational skills to how friendly and well-liked she is by clients and the team, she’s a real asset. Nicole creates a relaxed atmosphere and has the ability to make sure the client is always kept up to date with what’s happening in a friendly way. She’s helped bring across some nice operational ideas from her time at Missguided too which has helped with streamlining internal processes. She’s also the resident DJ and keeps the music varied in the office for everyone.”

The appointment of Nicole takes the Strafe Creative team to 13. Since launching in January 2010, Strafe Creative has grown consistently, thanks to client wins including BP, Go Dine, Avakin, Tobacco Dock and Virtual Headquarters.
