NoCode was originally created as a side project in October 2016, with the vision to empower and inspire non-technical entrepreneurs and makers!
In September 2018 the site was acquired by Concrete Capital.
When the idea for NoCode was first conceived, there were only a few scattered tools and resources, with little content online for non-techs looking to build something online. Fast-forward just two years and the space is booming with new tools launching weekly aiming to lower the barrier to entry!
NoCode has been at the forefront of this ever-expanding domain, becoming the platform for non-techs to discover the latest tools and resources.
This project grew larger than I could ever have imagined and now provides original content, guest posts, a community forum, discount codes, over 250+ reviewed tools and resources and regular newsletter going out to thousands of subscribers.
The platform continues to thrive under it's new ownership. Since selling the NoCode space has exploded, with more and more tools and makers continuing to amaze me with what can be achieved without code.
- NoCode was featured on Product Hunt twice in less than 2 years receiving 2000+ upvotes
- Featured on Hackernoon, Indie Hackers, Hacker News and BetaList.
- Since launch NoCode received over half million page views
- Slack community group over 300 active users
- NoCode members area with 4000+ registered members
Possibly one of the most ironic logos I have created considering it confused everyone and looked like a puzzle to work out. This wasn't intentional, I was just trying to be clever, but no one seemed to get it despite me thinking it was glaringly obvious. To add to the irony the url ended in .tech - which again no one got. Know your audience!
The Seafoamy green colour pallet (#66ffcc) was an eyesore at first so I toned it down after a lot of feedback. I still love the colour and desperate to use it in my next project.
The basic grid layout for the homepage was inspired by Startup Stash - the original directory based site featured on Product Hunt. It was easy to navigate and was infinitely scalable as I added some categories.
