About Me

Nick Nomad
Thinking in my library. The books are fake.

My name is Nick Nomad. I am a ‘digital native’​ with an over active mind. A creative hacker, an engineer, a builder of things, inhabiting the grey area between what we do now and what we should be doing next. If I have to build a ladder to get us there, I will. I provide services to some of the largest brands in the UK for digital and integrated agencies .

I’m a specialist in HTML email development and innovation and co-founder of the flock.digital email marketing agency, but also provide digital consulting and front end development services. I am available to support project managers and client services teams in delivering high level digital campaigns. You can also hire me as a project supervisor, producer, or senior developer.

HTML Email Development & Deployment

Working at the very sharp end of the industry, I have developed a code base for rapid development of absolutely bombproof emails that are mobile responsive, work on ALL active email clients and are fully tested.

Email development:

My process includes:

  • Build of HTML email templates in compliant code
  • Mobile responsive layout addition
  • Full testing in browsers, devices and Litmus
  • Personalisation tags based on customer databases for any of the major email deployment platforms (including Mapp, Marketo, Sales Force Cloud etc.)
  • Support for ALL major browsers and tablets / mobile devices
  • Support while setting up or encoding emails for delivery
  • Tabular layout with inline CSS and browser conditionals to current high end industry standards.

Digital Consultancy

My individual coding skills aside, digital consultancy is my main focus. I’ve been an integral part of digital marketing teams working on high profile and award winning campaigns for household names throughout the UK. My role has heavily been that of a digital consultant or producer, advising on digital technology, digital strategy and technical execution along with creative uses of existing and emerging technology. When I’m not doing that, I code.

If you regularly find digital projects spinning out of control, suffer development delays, or lack the technical expertise to manage delivery of a specific project effectively, then I can help. Digital consultancy exists to fill the gaps in your operation. You will have an industry expert that understands every side of the process, is experienced in working closely with developers, creatives and executives to achieve results.

The spectrum of work a digital consultant provides is huge, and very difficult to put into words, but here is list of example roles:

  • Working as a project producer – guaranteeing the delivery of a project on time and on budget
  • Providing technical knowledge in both agency and client planning sessions
  • Conducting developer code reviews
  • Supervising development teams to maintain efficiency and quality
  • Managing QA and client approval processes
  • Providing technical backup for client meetings and pitches
  • Training account management teams to better represent their agency’s digital products
  • Saving the day after digital project meltdowns.

The more challenging the problem, the more excited I am to be involved.
