Design and Code in Perfect Harmony!

A Bit About dCODA

We love technology, writing code and all the nerdy stuff, but you’ll find pencils, scalpels and paintbrushes lying around amongst routers, programming manuals and cameras in our Sheffield studio (we’ll tidy up one day).

We’re not a coding company – we are a decoding company. We know it’s vital to start any project by getting to know you and (something that often gets overlooked) getting to know your clients.

Teasing out and decoding exactly what a client wants is an art in itself. A short while into a meeting ideas often start to flow and it’s our job to sort out the good from the bad, getting through the noise, unscrambling all the ideas and putting them together into a workable, fantastic looking solution – be it a website, new brand, app, brochure, business card, pack label, ERP-to-eccommerce integration…or anything else. Somewhere along the way you’ll find we’ve become part of your marketing team.

Our solid background in design across all media allows us to come up with workable ideas quickly. We’ve used the word “workable” a few times on this page because it’s important. We know what looks good but we also know about old fashioned things like what will print properly and how to create artwork. When it comes to the web we’ll not create something spectacular purely to impress clients then scratch our heads trying to to get it to work and end up compromising it. Our designs are informed by our experience and a deep knowledge of the technology we are using from the outset. That isn’t to say we go for safe designs to make our job easier – we like to push ourselves and the medium we are working in. We learn something new from every project and apply it to the next.
