Loopings and Communication

Justine and Lauranne, both journalists, met at Flair magazine. One day they decided to gather their strengths to write quality content to their clients. Then they launched Looping Presse. They were in need of a website to explain their services. Lauranne said to me that she wanted “a website that has a soul, a story, that we would read as we browse a news website”. I analyzed all the examples they had sent me and suggested three templates. The one they chose was Enfold, but more  ...

From Blogger to Food Stylist

Behind the food blog FouettMagic, there is Meggan. This food lover was also one of the co-organizers of the Creative Sunday. Since we have decided to bring our events to a close, Meggan has put a word on her true passion: food design. The concept is still new but, in brief, a food stylist is the person who showcases the food. The idea is to organize shootings staging delicious meals in a great atmosphere (in a beautiful tableware on a decorated table with a nice view or in a lovely room).  ...

In the Mood for Travel

The travel agency Terra Travellers opened in 2015. A year later, the Facebook page was no longer enough, it needed a website. After a few issues with a company charging a bit too much before having created the website, Liudmila came to me. She wanted to have a simple website allowing her to show her latest promotions and tours. Very satisfied by the Enfold theme, I looked at the travel demo to see if it would fit with Terra Travellers. The choice was obvious: the agency colors were almost  ...

A New E-Shop for June’s

The e-shop June’s exists for a few years now. Since the project had been launched by a friend of mine, I am a big fan since day 1. I followed its evolution for a while until the day Alexandra offered me to join her and manage the brand together. Since I can’t stop looking at jewellery anywhere I am,  I thought the job was made for me! The website had been created by a web agency, at the beginning. Since I had the skills to make it by myself, we started from scratch and decided  ...

Why should we accept the use of cookies ?

“Can’t you do anything for this cookies message? That’s so annoying!” have I heard recently, speaking of those messages appearing on most of the websites asking to accept (or not) the use of cookies. I’m afraid I will disappoint you but no, I can’t do anything. The one we usually call the Cookie Law applies to any website based within the European Union. But What Is a Cookie? Cookies are small data files stored locally through the browser (Chrome,  ...

From Wagoner to alumni…

How did that happen? When did I become a Le Wagon alumni? Well, well, I know… The moment Matthijs Kolkman, the anchorman of our Demo Day (the closing event during which we all present the projects we’ve been working on the last weeks), ended his speech saying that we were now former students just like him. We are now part of a bigger batch (bye bye batch #45), the alumni one. OK, got it. But still, time flew in the last weeks! Last time I talked about Le Wagon was the middle of  ...

Halfway Through…

It’s been 4.5 weeks that I’ve started my training at Le Wagon (see my post I’m a Wagoner to catch up). Four weeks and a half, a bit more than a month, it doesn’t seem much, and yet, at Le Wagon, this is huge! I’ve already learned to master Ruby (I said “learned to master”, not “mastered”, I will need more practice… But I know the basics!), to communicate with databases, I’ve reviewed and improved my HTML and CSS knowledge  ...

I’m a Wagoner!

As I publish those words, I’m discovering Le Wagon in Brussels and attending the first day of this 9 weeks bootcamp. I’m either wondering what am I doing here or telling myself that’s exactly where I need to be (in principle, it should be the second option but we never know…). I set myself a challenge with this bootcamp which will help me improve my technical skills and contributing to more than one string to my bow. I dive into Ruby (a programming language invented  ...

How Learning WordPress Changed my (professional) Life

Before being able to work from home or anywhere else, choose my schedule, contribute to nice projects, etc.; I was working in a very classic office with carpet on the floor, in a building with a lot of stories (and several to which I couldn’t access for security reason) and a lot, – but really a lot – of colleagues. During more than two years, I’ve worked at the European Commission (“So classic in Brussels”, as I’ve heard once even before I could  ...
