Based in Rolleston, just outside Christchurch in NZ, I have a Degree in Graphic Design and a Diploma in Software Development. I've worked in these fields in Christchurch and Nelson, both freelance and for software houses. I have a personal flair for social media, am a tiny bit obsessed with Pokemon and like online gaming when I'm not knitting! My husband and I have enjoyed sampling the regions' local breweries over the last year and intend to continue this patronage with fervour!

The internet is all about responsiveness these days. That's fancy geekspeak for "automatically resizes for all devices." We know how to perform this sort of voodoo. In fact this site is a responsive site! Just try it on your phone, tablet or resize the browser window on your computer! Nifty!
Sometimes you don't need the whole kit and caboodle. If a simple web presence is all you require, maybe a Wordpress website is for you? Don't under-estimate the impact of a well-skinned blog, this is a very affordable option for those on a tight budget that can look as slick as the next site! Wordpress also makes updating your site a breeze as it is one of the most well respected Content Management Systems in use today! No coding knowledge required!

I was recommended Rachel via a friend that was also starting up a small business website. I was struggling for time so I asked her to make me a website for my small business @ginghamgirls I am thrilled with it, the first day has blown me away. She was so helpful and so patient. Absolute pleasure to work with and couldn't recommend her highly enough. Jo
