About Who is Matt Hill?

Matt Hill Portrait

I was born in Brighton, England in 1972 where I lived until moving to London in 2007. I now live with my partner and son in Gravesend, Kent.

I’ve always been a creative person, and take great pleasure in designing and building things. From Lego in my childhood, miniature painting in my teens, game level design in my twenties, and web-design for most of my career, I’ve always tried to keep my creativity alive. There’s nothing quite like seeing your own work come to life before your eyes. It’s intoxicating and immense fun.

When I’m asked what I do, I say I’m a web designer and developer, but my career has been a bit broader than that. Since 1993 I’ve collaborated on hundreds of digital projects, from CD-ROMs, kiosks, websites and apps. I fell into it by chance, and was lucky to find a career that was creative, challenging, fun and rewarding. I currently work at the Natural History Museum in London as part of the digital team.

This site is a place for me to write about and share the things that I enjoy. Feel free to poke around and read my ramblings, and if you do read something you enjoy, you can be assured that I will be delighted. Unfortunately I no longer have the time to reply to emails, but you might find me lurking on Twitter where I’m happy to chat.
