Digital Strategy

Working towards the definition of any company's digital strategy can be done from various angles. However, any approach will result in the clear identification of the business needs, goals and opportunities, coupled with the specification and rolling out of a clear and prioritized set of initiatives.

Web design

The business identity clearly defined, let's now work together towards the digital footprint of the company, a real pre-requisite in today's modern business environment. Whether design or redesign, emerging opportunities for growth with responsive web design are numerous, and time to embrace them (together) is now.

CRM Consultancy

Off on the right foot with the right tool. The use of a centralized place for the business' customer-related information and activities is the next logical step towards success, and there will be a CRM solution tailor made for your organization's market, size and needs (paid and open source).

Selected Work

Years spent in large firms have taught me a lot about business. And I can now bring my experience to help (preferably) smaller companies, including start-ups and individuals.

I prefer working for local entrepreneurs to facilitate one-to-one meetings, but in any case welcome long-term, pleasant and healthy relationships with my clients, who I love talking to past project end.


My agenda is always filling up fast but I will respond to your enquiries as soon as I can. Do not hesitate to give me a shoogle, I'd love to talk about any new and exciting project.

About me

My name is Flo and I am the web designer and CRM consultant behind shoogle designs.

I am based in the Paris area, having returned to France from an enjoyable 10-year spell abroad in both sunny Scotland and Belgium, and I have recently ended 12+ years spent in multinational companies doing ERP, CRM and web design to make the leap to the freelance life and concentrate on smaller projects.

I love clean and minimalistic websites and I am a huge fan of responsive web design. Therefore, I have a real passion for creating websites accessible across desktop and mobile platforms. Alongside my design and coding skills, I bring all my experience in CRM to help businesses get off on the right foot, helping them implement suitable CRM solutions. Beside the various open source CRM softwares, I have a strong knowledge of Salesforce.com, having implemented, administered and customized the solution in a multinational environment for years.
