I’m Rebecca Hill, a front-end web developer from Auckland, New Zealand. I’m crazy passionate about digital, particularly figuring out how it works and how to make it better.

I’m a pretty rare mix of tech wizardry, strategic knowledge, communication and management skills, having worked as both a project manager and developer. I also dabble in a few circus arts in my spare time, which prevents me from being eternally sucked into the rabbit-hole that is the internet!

About Hiring Me for a Project

I’m usually available for freelance projects in my spare time and love getting down and dirty with how your business can best be represented on the web, whether this involves a full re-development, content management system integration, API integration or cutting edge whizzy fun stuff.

I know how hard it is to find someone you can trust to put your brand online. I’m a web developer who prides herself on making her customers happy they chose her. Get in touch if you’ve got a project in mind!

About This Site

This site was built on WordPress, with a custom theme designed by yours truly, using the Underscores boilerplate. The fonts used are Adelle and PT Sans, supplied by Typekit, and the sweet background textures are adapted from Rounded Hexagon. It’s hosted on Media Temple, and the tech used in back includes Sass, Grunt, MAMP, Github, Sublime Text 3, Javascript, jQuery and PHP. The animations are done with the help of Skrollr, Ajaxify, GifLinks, and I’ve written the rest. I’ve also played with some of the cool tech that’s hot at the moment like CSS Blend Modes, Shapes, SVG animations, scrolling animations and animated GIFs – some of which will only work in the latest version of Google Chrome. Oh and you can check out my mini-style guide here.
