About Amanda

Hi! I'm a 28 year old female, living in North Canterbury, New Zealand.

Over the past 4 years I have been running my own company, Hotcode Designs Ltd. Our main focus is website and graphic design. Running my own business has been an exciting experience, with lots of learning and it has certainly kept me on my toes. Be sure to visit our website (www.hotcodedesigns.co.nz) if you are interested in having me create your website, brochures or even just your logo.

Before starting my own business, I was working full time for a company called Cynosure Productions Ltd, mostly completing website development requests for a large variety of clients.

I studied at Natcoll Design Technology, spending my time completing 3 diplomas in graphic design, website design and website development. Graphic design is my passion - I enjoy working with colour, images and text with a creative flair, and love that every job is different.

The latest adventure in my life is our move to a 14 hectare lifestyle block in North Canterbury. Both my husband and I grew up with farming backgrounds, so after spending 9 years in Christchurch city, it's nice to be back out in the country. This is also what has inspired me to add a blog to my website, and I'm aiming to keep it updated each week.

So feel free to browse my site, look at some of the work I have done over the years and read what I have been up to on the mini farm! Any comments are welcome.
