Hi, I am Lisa, aka Salted Limon. I am a Freelance Graphic Designer based in Bristol. A lot happened in the last 4 years of Salted Limon, so I feel it’s important to give you a little update on what has been happening.

Hi, I am Lisa, aka Salted Limon. I am a Freelance Graphic Designer based in Bristol. A lot happened in the last 4 years of Salted Limon, so I feel it’s important to give you a little update on what has been happening. You may (or not) have noticed my silence on this blog or my social media over the past year. Yes, Salted Limon is still alive, life just came in the way. So, here is my story.

In 2018, my partner and I decided to leave France for new adventures and professional opportunities abroad. We chose to land in England, near Bristol. Before leaving, I was an in-house Graphic Designer and Communication Officer in the South of France. When we move to England, I became a freelance Graphic Designer in order to have more flexibility.

Since then, I have developed my customer base with clients in France, England, and further away in Ghana. I am very pleased to work with strong and inspiring people, most of them are owners of small businesses. I actually love working with startups, creating their branding and being involved in the emergence of their services or products is very inspiring, and rewarding.

What do I do best?

I am specialized in designing logos, branding, packaging, and website, or all kind of graphic design (such as business cards, leaflets, brochures etc.). I also love working on video projects – especially motion design. You can check out my portfolio here.

Why freelancing?

I chose to freelance because it gives me more flexibility to balance my professional and personal life. I am now also a mum of 2 little ones, and it’s important for me to be there for them. Working is also essential for me, it’s my happy place, I love what I do. Freelancing helps me to have both: Win-Win!

What are your key values?

Honest – Transparency and trust are key to how I work.

Creative – I am passionate – graphic design is in my blood. I define my style as minimalist and elegant. I also consider myself creative in a wider way. I like to challenge myself with different projects such as a podcast or developing business ideas.

Working for Good – It’s very important for me to work for good. To do so, I volunteer and get involved in non-profit projects. I also give 10% of my turnover to charities.

What’s next?

I would like to support businesses with their design and image. Contact me if that’s something you or someone you know need.

Leaving and blossoming

Today I would like to share some thoughts about living abroad. 2 years ago I moved to the UK driven by an appeal for an experience abroad – being fully immerse in a new country, a new culture and a new language. Little did I know what I would become along the way.

Are we all made to be entrepreneur?

Often, we hear that everyone doesn’t have what it takes to be an entrepreneur. As if some of us were entrepreneurs deep down in their genes and others are destined to be employees. Is it true, though? Is it inborn or learned? Are we entrepreneur in our soul or do we become it along the way?

Woman, entrepreneur, mother: I took on the challenge

Today, I want to share about being a young mother and an entrepreneur, and the challenge it represents every day. More and more women are going for entrepreneurship. According to a recent study of the INSEE about the creation of businesses in France in 2018, women have launched 39% of the businesses – they represent 4 entrepreneurs on 10. Being a business woman is, in itself, a challenge, but when children are added to the equation, it’s even more challenging. How to blossom both in our roles of mother and business woman? Is it possible to square the two away?

Procrastination is not taking over

In these lockdown times, where we have no other choice than staying home, and where many are working from home, everything seems to be paused. Every morning we are wondering: “What am I going to do today?” Some of us write To Do Lists to stay focused, others take things as they come. However, whether you are self-employed or an employee working from home, one thing more tempting is taking over: procrastination.

Let’s embrace the imposter within us

In my previous post, I shared about the imposter syndrome. Now, I would like to talk about it through another angle, to encourage you to trust yourself and to overcome the imposter syndrome – especially when it arises in discomfort when you feel not experienced enough, yet completely capable.

Imposter syndrome: your coat isn’t too large!

Have you ever heard about the imposter syndrome? You know, this feeling we have when we doubt our skills, when we consider that we are not enough experienced and illegitimate towards our prospects or clients – as an “imposter”, a “fraud”, ready to be exposed. Today, I want to share my experience as an entrepreneur and my fight against this imposter syndrome.

The face behind Salted Limón
