Hello! We have been in the design and web industry for over 10 years. We first met in Temasek Polytechnic, pursuing a diploma in IT. After graduating, we decided to take our artistic education further and graduated NTU with a Bachelor in Fine Arts (Honours). Trained in both IT and design was extremely helpful with equipping us with an edge when we established our agency, Hello Pomelo Creatives.
Our unique designs and work ethics throughout the years has brought us to working with large clients such as NUS, SUTD, Esplanade and CNN. As an agency, we have helped small businesses as well as large organisations build their branding and online presence.
We realized that there were many women who were very interested in getting into the emerging tech field, but were too intimidated or lacked the confidence. As a pair of women in technology, we believe there is absolutely nothing to fear. This is why we decided to start Coding For Her. We wanted to dispel the preconceived notion that coding workshops are techy, impersonal, male-dominated and intimidating. We wanted to give women of all ages a safe space to ask questions and to learn without judgment.
To date, we have helped and equipped over 100 women with practical skills in graphic design and programming, allowing them to bring these skills to the workplace or even start their own businesses!
